London Scottish travel up North to take on Doncaster Knights at Castle Park this Saturday, kick off 2:30pm.
The Exiles will be looking for their first win since December, having suffered home defeats to both Bedford Blues and local rivals Eailing Trailfinders, and a frustrating away loss to Coventry.
The Knights are another team the Scots haven’t faced this season. Last year’s encounters both went in favour of the men from the North. However, Scottish were able to pick up losing bonus points in both matches.
With three fixtures away next month at Doncaster Knights, Ampthill and Newcastle Falcons in the quarter-finals of the Championship Cup, Scottish will need to get used to being on the road again.
It’s set to be a chilly game at Castle Park so make sure you come wrapped up warm in Scottish kit! Head over to our online store to view the full catalogue of Scottish stash.
