London Scottish Name Team for Championship Opener

19th October 2023

London Scottish have named a strong team to travel to Penzance to face Cornish Pirates at the Mennaye Field to open the Championship season. Bryan Redpath has made eleven changes to the starting fifteen from the side that took on Pirates just a fortnight ago.

In the front row Will Prior, George Head and Ashley Challenger line up with, Garin Lloyd, George Cave and Rhys Charalambous dropping to the bench. Matas Jurevicius returns to the London Scottish side on loan and he will be partnered in the second row by fellow Harlequins Johnny Green.

In the backs, injuries to Alec Lloyd-Seed and Harry Sheppard see Cameron Anderson deployed at fly half where he impressed against Exeter Chiefs in the Premiership Cup. Outside him Robbie McCallum is given the nod at inside centre with Will Simonds ready to go on the bench. Luke Mehson, Will Brown and Will Talbot-Davies make up the back three as they look to add some pace to an already exciting London Scottish backline.
