Two new signings for LS - one from Sarries, the other from Irish; both get an immediate chance in tomorrow's game - an important one for both sides...

LS announcement:

London Scottish enter 2019 and their important game against Hartpury College with a new look and exciting backline.

Ahead of their Friday night game at the RAG with the 12th place side from Gloucestershire , the exiles have named two debutants.

Tom Griffiths and Tom Fowlie will both start and will be looking to make an immediate impact with the Scots.

Head coach Nic Rouse has made a total of nine changes to the matchday squad.

The front row remains unchanged with Jordan Brodley, Billy Harding and Richard Palframan all starting with Jared Saunders returning from a wrist injury on the bench and Jonny Harris & Phil Cringle also among the replacements.

Tjiuee Uanivi misses out this week through illness as Byron Hodge partners Theo Vukasinovic. The back row is again unchanged.

Jacob Perry starts against the College where he l played for seven years. He links up with Grayson Hart in the half backs.

Reuben Bird-Tulloch shifts to the replacements as he makes way for Rory Jennings who moves to inside centre from fly half. He is joined by debutant dual-registered Tom Griffiths.

It is a powerful combination on the wings with another new arrival Tom Fowlie starting on the left wing and top try scorer Rob Stevenson starting on the right.

Miles Mantella makes his first start of the season at full back with Elliot Obatoyinbo missing out and Joe Luca Smith unavailable for a couple of months after shoulder surgery.

Matt Eliet returns from a rib injury for a spot on the bench and Matt Davidson could make his fourth appearance for the club after recovering from a wrist injury suffered in November.

London Scottish: 1. Jordan Brodley (15)  2. Billy Harding (12) 3. Richard Palframan (13) 4. Theo Vukasinovic  (7) 5. Byron Hodge (15) 6. James Tyas (25) 7. Lewis Wynne (11) 8. Mark Bright (c) (139) 9. Grayson Hart (14) 10. Jacob Perry (13) 11. Tom Fowlie (0) 12. Rory Jennings (12) 13. Tom Griffiths (0) 14. Rob Stevenson (16) 15. Miles Mantella (84)

Replacements:16. Jared Saunders (9) 17. Jonny Harris (44) 18. Phil Cringle (52)  19. Matt Eliet (21) 20. Josh Barton (15) 21. Reuben Bird-Tulloch (2) 22. Matt Davidson (3)

Tom Griffiths for Blues a few seasons ago was one of the best centres in the division.

Tom Fowlie is a quality player., big and quick. Seems to lack a bit of confidence at times which may account for him never really nailing down a place for LI. Was getting a lot of gametime and doing well at the back end of last season, but has fallen off the radar recently. Not sure if he had any niggles.

Hope he does well

Ealing Trailfinders team to play Bedford Blues on Saturday 12th January at Goldington Road in the Greene King IPA Championship: I do NOT like the team that has been put out here for a crucial match against Bedford. Johnston at 15 has neither the pace, nor the kicking ability of Peter Lydon. If this is Lydon's punishment for allowing that crossfield kick try against Reds, it is a silly time to do it. I'd prefer to see Harries replacing one of the backs, as he is very nimble - probably Stegman, who seems to run directly into tackles too often for my taste. I'd also consider Guy Armitage at 13. Howard has played well in spurts, but I think that the squad overall is lacking in elusiveness. Rohan O'Regan is a strange start, and I can only assume that Durutalo is still unfit after taking a knock against Jersey, and I don't understand Onojaife at 4 - he has shown nothing on the pitch this year. I'll be changing my prediction. :(

15 David Johnston 14 Seb Stegmann 13 Pat Howard 12 Harry Sloan 11 James Cordy Redden 10 Craig Willis 9 Jordan Burns 1 Jordan Els 2 Alun Walker 3 Mark Tampin 4 Jordan Onojaife 5 Harry Casson 6 Rohan O’Regan 7 Jordy Reid 8 Rayn Smid ©

Weren't you saying last week that you'd been disappointed with Armitage?  Or was that the view of another Ealing fan?

It was me - well remembered. However, with this particular line up, I think that he'd be a good addition. It's fine and well to have lots of solid defenders, but you need a bit of pace to generate points, and he'd bring that.

I think it is 3 ex Blues in the Ealing squad.
 
Blues are probably missing 3 or 4 in the squad of what would be considered their best.  Still a squad that is capable of beating Ealing at home.

starting line-up:
15. Rich Lane
14. Ryan Hutler
13. Lewis Robling
12. Chris Czekaj
11. Dean Adamson
10. Will Hooley
9. Lee Dickson (c)

1. Sean McCarthy
2. Jacob Fields
3. Alex Penny
4. Ed Taylor
5. Mark Flanagan
6. Oli Curry
7. Josh Buggea
8. Jarad Williams

Replacements:
16. Tadgh McElroy
17. Hayden King
18. Ben Cooper
19. Will Carrick-Smith
20. Justin Blanchet
21. James Lennon
22. Jake Sharp

Interesting observations and glad to see that you are hoping for an expansive game from ET. However, it looks to me as though the selectors have gone for a side that will defend well against the Bedford back line and starve them of ball up front, looking to drive through the forwards.
I may well be wrong, but I think that this will be where most of Ealings points will come from with any scored by the backs coming on the back of the forwards drawing the wide cover inside. In other words they will be trying to score from scraps.
I am certainly no expert so we shall see what transpires.
It is still the pick out game of the round for me and should be a great occasion.

I completely agree with your analysis of this line up, and it was employed as a winning strategy against Jersey, but I think that Ealing has went too far - hence my call for more expansiveness even in the face of potentially giving up a few more points. But, I have no actual power over selection, so I'll cheer for the lads we put on the field.

Is Armitage injured ? Or given that it's contract negotiation time, has he signed with someone else for next season? Seemed to remember a couple of the lads who went to Bristol were left out of quite a few squads this time last year.

I actually think he's done well and has added pace and an attacking dynamism to our midfield so a bit perplexed that he hasn't been playing...

I agree about Lydon but he does tend to blow hot and cold within a game. I would have him in my selection just for his goal kicking and I would allow him to take all kicks out of hand over any fly half we have.

I am a Will Harries fan , he brings a touch of magic to the backs and is our best player under a high ball both in defence and and chasing the in vogue box kicks.

Rohan O’Regan is a very good 6 . He gets through a lot of clearing out and tackling . He is considerably bigger than Durutalo and adds the scrummaging power.


Ambition should be made of sterner stuff.
