London Scottish Ready To Face Llanelli

14th December 2012

London Scottish bring in nine new faces for the British and Irish Cup fixture away at Llanelli.

Director of Rugby Simon Amor has chosen to bring in some fresh faces for the trip to South Wales as London Scottish go in search of back to back wins over Llanelli, following the 24-15 win at the Richmond Athletic Ground last Sunday.

Wingers Dave McCall and David Howells are named in the starting XV, with James Love shifting to full back and PJ Gidlow starting at inside centre. There's also a new half back pairing with Dan Mugford and Richard Bolt coming in for Phil Godman and Ross Samson.

In the pack, Harry Allen starts at hooker, with Alex Mackenzie at tighthead and Colin Quigley moving to loosehead. Alex Karonias starts at lock alongside Tyler Hotson and club captain Lewis Calder comes in at openside flanker, joining Ben Russell and Mark Bright in the back row.

Craig McGrath comes onto the replacements bench along with Lewis Thiede and Jamie Stevenson. There's also experienced cover to come from the bench in the form of Chevvy Pennycook and Andy Reay.
