TEAM NEWS: Mark Bright brings up 150 against the auld foe Richmond

25th April 2019

Mark Bright will make his 150th appearance for the Scots this Saturday as they have welcome Richmond as the visitors to The Athletic Ground.

Head Coach Nic Rouse has made a few changes to the side that lost to Hartpury last weekend as the Exiles aim for an 8th placed finish in the Championship ladder.

The front row is completely changed, Jordan Brodley and Phil Cringle come in at prop as Ollie Adams makes his first start for the Club. Billy Harding returns among the replacements after recovering from a foot injury.

Theo Vukasinovic and Matt Eliet remain in the second row. James Tyas comes back into the back row. Joe Atkinson slides down to bench. Bright will skipper the side from the base of the scrum.

Josh Barton is joined by Scotland Under 20 Matt Davidson at fly half. The rest of the backline is unchanged from the loss to Hartpury.

Richie Vernon is among the replacements and will play his final game before he retires after a glittering 13 year career.
