TEAM NEWS: Scots make one change for Edinburgh fixture

30th August 2019

London Scottish make one change to the starting XV ahead of their final preseason fixture against Edinburgh.

Ex-Edinburgh player Phil Cringle comes in at tight head prop for Kyle Whyte, who has picked up a shoulder injury, in the only change to the starting XV which beat a strong Chinnor side last week.

The experienced quartet of Charlie Ingall, Matt Gordon, Alex Toolis and Matt Eliet come in on the bench, having missed out last week due to injury.

The team travelled up earlier in the week and have been staying at Glenalmond College, before heading over to the Scottish capital later today.

Head coach Graham Steadman said: “On Friday we will have a light team run before we travel to Edinburgh. The team will get themselves settled in at Edinburgh Napier halls.

“They’ll have a bit of free time that afternoon and have a chance to see the sights and relax, before switching on for the game the following day.”

On the match Steadman said: “We will be looking to deliver a top performance against a very strong Edinburgh outfit.”

Kick-off for tomorrow’s match is at 2pm. If you haven’t booked your tickets yet then head over to Edinburgh’s website.
