Scots make changes for away trip to Jersey

London Scottish head to Jersey Reds in Round Two of the Championship Cup as they look to build on their momentous win against rivals Richmond last Friday at the RAG.

London Scottish head to Jersey Reds in Round Two of the Championship Cup as they look to build on their momentous win against rivals Richmond last Friday at the RAG.

The coaching team have decided to rotate some players after a gruelling Greene King IPA Championship campaign and a tough hard-fought win against Richmond in gruelling conditions.

Former London Scottish Highlander Miles Wakeling is included for his first competitive involvement with the club and academy starlet Josh Barton features on the bench for the first time this season after some impressive performances for high-flying Chinnor in National One whilst out on loan.

Head Coach Nic Rouse has made five changes to the starting XV that conquered Richmond.

Jordan Brodley will start against his former side at loosehead with Pete Austin starting at hooker and man of the match against Richmond, Richard Palframan starting at tighthead. Props Jimmy Litchfield and Ollie Dawe will be looking to make an impact after both being named on the bench. Jared Saunders may play against his former side as a substitute.

Byron Hodge moves down to the bench for the first time this season after being an ever-present for the previous ten games. Luke Frost is partnered in the engine room by Theo Vukasinovic who made his debut last Friday off the bench.

Matt Eliet shifts from openside to blindside as Matt Marley starts for the first time this season after returning from playing Shute Shield rugby in Australia. Mark Bright continues at number eight and as captain.

Ed Hoadley comes in for Grayson Hart who moves down to the bench with fellow scrum half Josh Barton also named amongst the substitutes.

Jacob Perry starts his fourth straight game at fly half. Ben Mosses will be outside him in the centres, as will young Matt Davidson who replaces Richie Vernon who misses out with a head knock. The back three is unchanged from the Richmond game with Miles Mantella and Craig Duncan on the wings and Joe Luca Smith at full back.
