Coventry Rugby has announced its squad for the upcoming fixture against London Scottish on Saturday 4th March, in our return to league action.
Following our two Gift to the Community games against the UK Armed Forces & RAF, Alex Rae has rung the changes this week as his men look to continue their strong league form.
In the front row, Suva Ma’asi starts at Hooker, and finds the power of Toby Trinder and Ollie Andrews either side of him at Loosehead and Tighthead Prop respectively.
James Tyas joins Adam Peters in the engine room of the scrum, whilst Tom Dodd returns to the back row, and is accompanied by Josh Bainbridge at 7 and Senitiki Nayalo at number 8.
Will Chudley partners Evan Mitchell in a half-back pairing which blends youth with experience, and will be key to unlocking the Exiles’ defence.
In the midfield, Lucas Titherington starts at inside-centre and finds Will Rigg directly outside of him, whilst the starting XV is rounded out by a backfield trio of James Martin, Louis James, and Will Talbot-Davies at fullback.
Will Biggs, James Kenny, and Jake Bridges will all be waiting in the wings to bring additional firepower to the front row, with Rhys Thomas and Tom Ball concluding the forward replacements.
Joe Snow will be looking to make an impact off the bench at scrum-half, whilst Ollie Betteridge and Will Wand will serve as cover across the rest of the backline.
