Team News: Scots Name Side for Derby Day

01st December 2017

London Scottish head into the South West London derby against Richmond on the back of two successive wins against Cornish Pirates and Rotherham. The Scots left it very late against bottom side Rotherham but scraped through winning 27-24 away from home.

Dave Morris has kept largely the same side from the Rotherham victory but has been boosted by returning Internationals Kyle Baillie and Tjiuee Uanivi and the return of Captain Danny Kenny after suspension.

Ewan McQuillin and Craig Holland have dropped down to the replacements after starting last week.

Phil Cringle replaces McQuillin in the front row and partners Derrick Appiah and Isaac Miller, Jonny Harris is still ruled out with a recurring neck and shoulder injury.

Jonathan Mills retains the captaincy in the second row and is joined by Tjiuee Uanivi who represented Namibia last week against Uruguay.

Ed Milne shifts back to his preferred position in the back row after playing in the second row against Rotherham. Gregor Gillanders who started last weekend drops out of the side. Club Captain Chris Walker continues at openside and Joe Atkinson plays at number eight.

Ed Hoadley starts the game over Alex Walker, who moves down to the bench. Jake Sharp continues at fly half. Ben Mosses and Ross Neal are again the centre combination for the ninth time this season.

Charlie Ingall moves up from the replacements to replace Craig Holland on the left wing. Matt Williams and Fraser Lyle make up the rest of the back three.

Player-Coach Dan George is named as a replacement along with McQuillin and Ben Onyeama Christie. Canadian International Kyle Baillie and Danny Kenny are the other forward replacements. Craig Holland and Alex Walker will cover the backs off the bench.
