London Scottish Ready To Face Llanelli

07th December 2012

London Scottish make two changes to their starting XV for their Sunday afternoon British and Irish Cup clash against Llanelli at the Richmond Athletic Ground (KO 2.30pm).

Dual-registered Harlequins winger Miles Mantella comes into the side on the left wing and lock Tyler Hotson makes his return to first team action after a spell with the Canadian national side.

Mantella’s last appearance in the B&I Cup was against Moseley in October when he scored a sensational length of the pitch try in the closing moments of the match. Hotson returns to the starting XV for the first time since the RFU Championship game with Leeds on November 3rd.

Director of Rugby Simon Amor: “The B&I Cup is very much an opportunity for us, particularly where we are right now with our new coaching structure and training schedule. It gives us a great opportunity for this team to continue our progression and it’s a good chance for us to give some players more first team exposure.”
