London Scottish Ready To Face Jersey

26th October 2012

London Scottish head to Jersey this Saturday in search of their first away win of the season.

Scottish make three changes to the backline from their 37-41 defeat to Moseley in the B&I Cup, with Dave McCall and Miles Mantella replacing James Love and Gerard Mullen on the wings and Andy Reay drops to the bench with Oli Grove replacing him at outside centre.

In the front row, props Mark Irish and Aaron Liffchak come in for Alex Clarke and Colin Quigley and there is one change in the second row, with Paul Spivey replacing Sam Twomey.

Director of Rugby Simon Amor has paid credit to his side’s opponents and their progress in recent years: “Jersey’s rise through the leagues has been very similar to London Scottish’s. What has been achieved in recent seasons under the guidance of Ben Harvey, who I have huge respect for as a coach, has been fantastic.

“We are aware of how difficult a place it is to go and play at Jersey, and we will have to be at our absolute very best in both attack and defence to get a result.”
