Scottish head to Clifton Lane for Titans challenge

16th September 2016

London Scottish have named their team to travel to Clifton Lane to face Rotherham Titans tomorrow afternoon. 

The Scots are looking to bounce back after defeat in the Exile Derby, aiming to register their first victory of the 2016/17 Greene King IPA Championship season. 

The front-row remains unchanged for the third consecutive week, with Grant Shiells, David Cherry and Ewan McQuillin looking to get the Scots on the front foot at scrum time. 

Captain Rory Bartle is joined by Dom McGeekie in the second row, whilst the back-row has been shuffled positionally, with Danny Kenny moving to blindside flanker, Joe Atkinson at open side and Ally Miller at number eight. 

Jamie Stevenson has a new half-back partner, Harry Sheppard starts at fly-half with Peter Lydon moving to full-back. 

Tom Galbraith starts at inside centre alongside the returning Robbie Fergusson who missed out last weekend through injury.

An exciting looking back-three sees Craig Holland make his debut on the left wing, with Alec Coombes on the right wing and Peter Lydon in his more regular position in the 15 shirt. 

Amongst the substitutes Cameron Fenton, Jonny Harris and Dan Koroi offer a front row alternative, with Matt Marley covering the rest of the pack. 

Ed Hoadley provides scrum-half back-up, centre Patrick Kelly could make his debut after his involvement in the Under 20 World Championship with Scotland, and winger Cameron Ives completes the match day squad for the trip to Clifton Lane.
