Derby day revenge in sight for Scottish

13th April 2018

Director of Rugby Dave Morris has named his side to take on the Athletic Ground co-tenants Richmond tomorrow in the South West London derby. The Scots will be looking to avenge their last minute 28-22 loss the last time the sides met in December.

The starting lineup remains largely unchanged from the side that dispatched Rotherham Titans last weekend at the RAG with Jonny Harris the only new face in the starting XV. He comes in for Derrick Appiah who moves to the bench.

Harris, who signed a new contract with Scottish this week, comes in at Loosehead prop and joins Worcester Warriors bound Isaac Miller and USA international Dino Waldren in the front row. The second row remains the same as last weekend with Ed Milne and Tjiuee Uanivi in the engine room.

Chris Walkers is kept on the Openside after receiving his 50th cap after the Titans game with Joe Atkinson on the Blindside and Danny Kenny leading the side from the base of the scrum.

The backline is unchanged after a strong performance against Rotherham. The inside backs are the same as the majority of the season. Alex Walker and Jake Sharp are the halfbacks and Ross Neal and Ben Mosses will be in the centres. Joe Luca Smith stays at Full Back and is joined in the back three by Matt Williams and Charlie Ingall.

Matt Marley and Craig Holland come onto the replacements bench as loanees Oli Curry and Jacob Atkins are recalled by their parents clubs.
