Team News: Scottish looking to settle the score against Reds as Kenny returns

15th March 2018

London Scottish will face Jersey Reds for the fourth time this season and will be looking to avenge their previous three defeats to the side from across the channel.

Skipper Danny Kenny returns and starts at number eight after pulling his hamstring against the Reds in the British and Irish Cup back in December. Kenny is one of five changes in the starting side made by Dave Morris after the three point loss to Hartpury last weekend.
