Team News: Scottish get chance at redemption against Hartpury

09th March 2018

After the Beast from the East forced this game to be postponed last weekend, London Scottish finally get a chance to earn their redemption against Hartpury College.

Hartpury ended up winning the previous encounter at the RAG with a length of the field try with the final play. Hartpury ran out 15-13 winners, something that cut the Scots deep.

Director of Rugby Dave Morris has selected a side with a few changes from the team that lost against Bristol back in February.

Morris has selected a large pack to take on the Hartpury forwards with Jonny Harris returning for the first time since November. Ewan McQuillin is also selected in the front row with skipper Isaac Miller at Hooker.

James Tyas returns from a foot niggle which kept him out against Bristol and partners Ealing Trailfinders loanee Oli Curry in the engine room. Fellow Trailfinders loanee Llewellyn Jones starts on the blindside with Matt Eliet starting on the openside and Joe Atkinson at number eight.

Alex Walker is at scrum half and Jacob Atkins will marshall proceedings at fly half. Ben Mosses and Ross Neal will link up in the centres for the fourteenth time this season. Charlie Ingall moves to the left wing as Craig Holland comes in at full back with Matt Williams assuming the right wing position.

Matt Marley and Joe Luca Smith shift down to the replacements bench after the Bristol fixture. Jake Sharp also makes his return to the side on the bench after pulling his hamstring against Ealing Trialfinders.
