London Scottish will host National League One outfit Esher at Richmond Athletic Ground on Saturday, August 23rd with two matches being played, 2nd XV, 1pm kick-off, 1st XV, 3pm kick-off.
As announced earlier this week, London Scottish will host RaboDirect PRO 12 finalists Glasgow Warriors in a pre-season friendly at Richmond Athletic Ground on Saturday August 30, 3pm kick-off.

London Scottish head coach James Buckland said: “Saracens will obviously represent a huge test for the boys.
“They are full of stars and it will be our first game.
“Last summer we played Harlequins and even though we lost, we took a lot out the game.
“We have an excellent relationship with Esher, a club which will look to push on next season.
“We brought in their scrum-half Robbie Shaw for the second half of last season and signed prop Stewart Maguire from Esher this summer, so they are a club which produces good players.”
He added: “It will be fantastic for us to test ourselves against a quality side like Glasgow Warriors.
“Gregor Townsend's squad had a tremendous campaign last season and each year Glasgow Warriors just get better and better.
“It's certainly a fixture which will excite both sets of fans.”
