London Scottish player Craig Duncan has been released on loan to Chinnor and will be starting for them.

Ahead of tomorrow’s fixture, club captain Lewis Wynne said: “Chinnor are sizing up to be a really good side, it’s going to be a tough game.
“These matches are massively important. It gives a chance to the players to stake their claim for the start of the season.
“We can also see if things that we’ve been working on in preseason are actually working or not, so we can then adjust. It gives us a chance to fine tune things ahead of that opening match of the season against Cornish Pirates.”
