Team News: Scottish look to bounce back after Ealing defeat

29th September 2017

Dave Morris has named his side to take on Doncaster Knights at The Richmond Athletic Ground tomorrow.

The Scots will be looking to make amends on the heavy 72-12 loss at the hands of the Ealing Trailfinders last Sunday on Sky Sports.

Morris has made a few changes to his starting lineup with Jonathan Mills, James Tyas and Matt Williams all being recalled.

Ex-Sale Shark Jonathan Mills partners James Tyas in the second row with Matt Eliet being rewarded with a start on the blindside after an impressive 35 minutes against Ealing.

Ed Hoadley is given his first start of the season as Alex Walker is ruled out with injury. Josh Barton, who progressed from the Scottish academy system, takes the 21 jersey.

Fraser Lyle shifts from full back to fly half, Jake Sharp drops to the replacements. Craig Holland starts at 15 after scoring against the Trailfinders and will add to the an experienced back three.

Veteran Chris Walker is named on the replacements bench for the first time in his second spell at Scottish.

Morris said that “Saturday can’t come quick enough, we have a fantastic opportunity to show the result last week was a blip, it’s going to be all about character”.
