Scots change four ahead of visit to table-topping Yorkshire Carnegie

25th September 2015

London Scottish have made four changes to the starting line-up as they head to Headingley to face Yorkshire Carnegie on Saturday evening at 18:00.

 Mark Bright will become just the fourth London Scot to make 100 appearances for the club, and the captain will be looking to mark the occasion with a memorable victory. 
James Hallam replaces James Gibbons in the front row, whilst Rory Bartle will join Chris Walker and Mark Bright in the back-row, with Chevvy Pennycook left out.
Russell Weir starts his first match for the Scots after joining in the summer, and the Scotland Sevens representative is joined by Oli Grove at fly-half in a new look half-back pairing.
Jason Harries, who has scored twice already this season partners Drew Locke in the centre, with Miles Mantella starting on the wing for the first time in the 15/16 campaign.
On the bench Kurt Schonert will look to make his first appearance for the club, academy bursary duo Alex Brown and Ben Calder will want to impress, and Harlequins dual-registration pair Matt Shields and Joe Marchant will also look to make an impact for the Scots.
Head Coach Peter Richards said: “We know that this will be a tough match with Yorkshire currently top of the table but we can take confidence from two good performances against Ealing and Bedford.”
“There is great competition in our squad which is shown by the changes that we have made and we expect the players to push each other for starting positions.”
