RUGBY UNION: It's all change in Welsh front row
GREENE KING IPA CHAMPIONSHIP
LONDON Welsh will have an all new front row when they visit Rotherham Titans at Clifton Lane today (3).
Props Nathan Trevett and Peter Edwards line up alongside hooker Andy Titterell as three of six changes made by Exiles head coach Justin Burnell.
Titterrell and Edwards came off the bench to great effect against Plymouth Albion last week, while Trevett was rested altogether.
Mitch Lees comes in for the injured Dan Browne at blindside flanker.
Carl Kirwan, who joined the Exiles from Rotherham this summer, returns in place of Mike Denbee at openside.
Rob Lewis comes in at scrum half to replace the injured Ollie Frost.
Prop Alec Hepburn, who played for Henley Hawks last week, is among the replacements as is utility back Dante Mama for a fourth match running.
Hudson Tonga’uiha, Joe Ajuwa, Rhys Crane, Nathan Morris, Cai Griffiths and Rob Andrew are ruled out by injury.
Joel Gill gets the nod in his battle with Jack Roberts for Rotherham’s No 13 jersey.
Former London Welsh man Ed Williamson returns at blindside flanker, with Ali Birch coming in at openside.
Alfie To’oala, who like Williamson was at Welsh last season, retains his place at No 8.
Rotherham Titans: Keating, Broadley, Gill, Socino, Wilson, Murphy, Mulchrone (capt), Gadd, Cruse, Quigley, Thomas, Sanderson, Williamson, Birch, To’oala. Reps: Sowrey, Tampin, Maddison, Pearce, Preece, White, Roberts.
London Welsh: Jewell, Scott, J Lewis, May (capt), Stegmann, Ross, R Lewis, Trevett, Titterrell, Edwards, Corker, P Browne, Lees, Kirwan, Stedman. Reps: Davis, Hepburn, Tideswell, Pienaar, Denbee, Davies, Mama.
