London Scottish have named their squad to take on Ulster ‘A’ for tomorrow’s must-win British and Irish Cup match at the Kingspan Stadium.
Ulster currently top the pool with 14 points and the Scots sit third with 11, meaning they will need to leave Belfast with a victory to have any chance of qualification.
The starting line-up is unchanged from the side that impressively defeated Rotherham Titans on New Year’s Day, with Head Coach Peter Richards looking to build on what was an encouraging performance.
Grant Shiells, George Turner and Dan Koroi continue in the front-row, with Captain Rory Bartle in the second-row alongside Callum Hunter Hill who received a call up to Scotland’s Under 20 Six Nations squad this week. Danny Kenny, Joe Atkinson and Dave Sisi make up the back-row which functioned well in their last outing.
Ed Hoadley and George Cullen continue their half-back combination, with Patrick Kelly at inside centre and Robbie Fergusson in the 13 shirt. Jason Harries and Craig Holland occupy the wings, with Peter Lydon at full-back.
David Cherry, Jonny Harris and Phil Cringle offer a front-row alternative with Neale Patrick and Ifereimi Boladau covering the rest of the pack. Alec Coombes and Tom Galbraith complete the match day squad.
