Third derby of the season as the Scots face Richmond

Third derby of the season as the Scots face Richmond

London Scottish head into their third derby of the season with Richmond tomorrow as they face off in Round Five of The Championship Cup at the RAG.

London Scottish head into their third derby of the season with Richmond tomorrow as they face off in Round Five of The Championship Cup at the RAG.

The last time the two sides met, Scottish controlled the game in tough torrential rain winning 10-6, leaving the visitors without a try on the board that day. They will be looking for a similar result tomorrow when Richmond act as the hosts.

Head Coach Nic Rouse has been able to name a near full strength forward pack for the game but has had to make some changes in the Scottish backline as a few injuries to key players has resulted in a reshuffle.

Jordan Brodley, Jared Saunders and Richard Palframan all start with Billy Harding, Jimmy Litchfield and Dino Waldren named on the bench. Phil Cringle misses out with a head knock and Jonny Harris is a week or so away from full fitness.

Luke Frost moves to the second row to partner Tjiuee Uanivi who has returned from International duty with Namibia.  James Tyas and Matt Eliet start on the flanks as Mark Bright returns to skipper the side from number eight.

Exciting scrum half Josh Barton continues at scrum half after a strong showing against Ealing Trailfinders last week. Rory Jennings returns to the starting lineup for the first time after serving his suspension. Jacob Perry is not named in the 22 after picking up an injury against Ealing.

Grayson Hart is called upon in the centres as Ben Mosses shifts to 13 after Richie Vernon picked up a niggle in training this week.
