London Scottish have named their side ahead of the Sunday afternoon derby against fellow Exiles London Irish which will be shown live on Sky Sports.

Director of Rugby Dave Morris and Head Coach Nic Rouse have made three changes to the side that beat Bedford Blues at Goldington Road last Saturday. Billy Harding comes in to make his first start for the club after some impressive performances from the bench this season and Ben Mosses also returns in the centres after being unavailable last weekend. Scotland international Richie Vernon is a late withdrawal from the side and is replaced by Craig Duncan.

Jordan Brodley joins former London Scottish junior Billy Harding and former London Irish prop Richard Palframan in the front row.

The second rows remain unchanged for the sixth straight game as Byron Hodge and Tjiuee Uanivi partner each other. James Tyas, Lewis Wynne and Mark Bright continue in the back row after some stellar showings in recent weeks.

Ed Hoadley and Rory Jennings continue their partnership in the half backs. Ben Mosses slots back in at inside centre as Craig Duncan starts at 13, replacing Matt Williams who has returned to this weekend’s opponents London Irish.

Double try-scorer last weekend Rob Stevenson is joined by Charlie Ingall and Joe Luca Smith in the back three.

Jared Saunders returns among the replacements after a shoulder injury which he picked up in Round 1 against Richmond. Jimmy Litchfield is also named on the bench after making his only appearance this season against Ealing Trailfinders. Centre Henari Veratau could make his London Scottish debut from the bench.
