Two changes as Scottish look for second win

London Scottish head to Goldington Road this weekend to take on Bedford Blues as they look to build on their first win of the 2018/19 season last weekend against Jersey Reds.

London Scottish head to Goldington Road this weekend to take on Bedford Blues as they look to build on their first win of the 2018/19 season last weekend against Jersey Reds.

The last time the Exiles faced Bedford was just before Christmas last season and the two sides played out a 52-52 thriller at the RAG.

After the 27-24 win last weekend Director of Rugby Dave Morris and Head Coach Nic Rouse have only made two changes to the starting XV. Jordan Brodley returns at loosehead replacing Danny Hobbs-Awoyemi who has returned to London Irish after a short term loan. Matt Williams, also London Irish, starts at outside centre and is the only other change.

Brodley returns after being unavailable to face his former side Jersey and joins Pete Austin and Richard Palframan in the front row. The second row and back row remains unchanged. Captain Mark Bright brought up his 150th Championship appearance last week against the Reds.

Ed Hoadley and Rory Jennings continue as the half back pairing. Richie Vernon shifts to inside centre as Ben Mosses is unavailable for selection this week. London Irish centre and former England Under 20 Matt Williams will bring his explosive speed to outside centre. The back three also remains unchanged.

The bench is completely untouched from the Jersey game last weekend.
