Director of Rugby Dave Morris has kept a very similar side from the previous weekend’s agonising loss to Doncaster Knights as London Scottish prepare to welcome league leaders Bristol to the Athletic Ground.
Ben Mosses returns from a concussion which ruled him out of the Knights game. This will be the first time Mosses faces his old side as he missed the October encounter at Ashton Gate. Ed Milne also moves from the bench to the starting lineup as James Tyas struggles with a foot injury.
Dave Morris has made only two changes in the forward pack. Ed Milne starts in the second row and Phil Cringle returns to the starting XV as Ewan McQuillin shifts onto the bench. Isaac Miller continues as captain.
There are also two changes in the back division. Mosses replaces Fraser Lyle at inside centre and Charlie Ingall comes back from injury to start at full back as Craig Holland moves down to the bench.
The replacements bench has one new face as Llewellyn Jones joins the Scots from Ealing Trailfinders. He joins Oli Curry and Jacob Atkins as players who have recently come into the Scottish squad to add to squad depth and cover injuries.
