Travel / Directions & Train Times

A ‘Bit Of A Battle’ and a healthy crowd is expected on Sunday when we take on Yorkshire Carnegie, currently one of the Championship’s form sides.

Unbeaten Carnegie sit one place & 4 points ahead of us at 2nd in the Greene King IPA Championship and are likely to include the league’s top points scorer fly-half Joe Ford, brother of England’s George, who last weekend took his tally for the season to 55.

Speaking ahead of the game, joint coach Alan Paver said: “The squad have prepped well and the guys are determined and ready to face a strong side that has plenty of experience and good coaches.

“What the score will be, who knows, but supporters can expect a bit of a battle, which should make for good viewing, and the best team will win on the day.”

Team News

There are four changes from the side that started at London Scottish last weekend. Club captain Chris Morgan returns to partner Brett Beukeboom in the second-row, Marlen Walker slots in at loose-head prop, and Dan Lee is named at No. 8.

In the backs, fly-half Laurence May will make his first Championship start of the season, whilst for Edd Pascoe, it would mark his league debut should he make an appearance from the bench
