Scots ready to welcome Yorkshire Carnegie for Super Saturday at the Athletic Ground

27th January 2017

London Scottish have named their team to face Yorkshire Carnegie in tomorrow’s Greene King IPA Championship clash at the Athletic Ground.

The starting line-up features seven changes from the side that took on Ulster ‘A’ in the British and Irish Cup a fortnight ago. 

After the postponement of last weekend’s match the Scots head in to this fixture with renewed energy, as they search for a win against the side from Leeds who have only been defeated on one occasion in the league so far this season.

Jonny Harris, David Cherry and Dan Koroi start in the front-row, with captain Rory Bartle and Neale Patrick in the second-row. Huw Taylor partners Joe Atkinson and Ifereimi Boladau in a dynamic looking back-row. 

Ed Hoadley and George Cullen continue their half-back combination for the fifth match in a row, whilst Tom Galbraith partners Robbie Fergusson in the centre. Jason Harries, Alec Coombes and Peter Lydon make up an exciting back-three.

Tom Lindsay, Derrick Appiah and Phil Cringle offer a front-row alternative, with Wilhelm van Der Sluys and Danny Kenny covering the rest of the pack on the bench.

Scrum-half Jamie Stevenson returns to the squad and will be looking to make an impact when called upon, and Ben Rath completes the match day squad as cover for the back-three.
