London Scottish head up the M1 to take on Ampthill at Dillingham Park this Saturday, kick off 7:45pm.
Having suffered defeat at home to Nottingham 17-30 last time out, the Exiles will be searching for their first win in 2020.
Ampthill joined us this season from National 1 and we’ve already played them in the opening rounds of the Greene King IPA Championship; an encounter which ended in a six all draw at the Athletic Ground under dreary conditions in October last year.
Since then, Ampthill have gone on to be one of the surprise packages of the Championship picking up wins against Coventry and Hartpury, but losing bonus points in other matches currently sees them sitting in sixth position in the table.
The Scots haven’t had a win on the road since December and will be looking to move themselves off the bottom of the table heading into the knock out stages of the Championship Cup away to Newcastle Falcons in a week’s time (Saturday 22nd February, Kingston Park, kick off 3pm).
The fans will have to wait until the second week in March to see the Exiles back at the Athletic Ground to take on Hartpury on Saturday 14th March. Tickets and hospitality are already selling fast, so make sure you book in NOW!
If you’re feeling chilly after storm Ciara or feel like you need a waterproof or hoodie ahead of storm Dennis which arrives at the weekend, then head over to the London Scottish online store to check out what’s in our catalogue.
RFU halve Championship funding

The Chairman, President and management at London Scottish will be in immediate consultation with all stakeholders to achieve the most positive outcome for the players and staff at the Club.”
