With just two games left before the 134th Varsity Match, Coach James Wade and Captain George Messum ring the changes with the visit of London Scottish to Iffley Road on Tuesday evening. With the final fixture against Richmond coming just 5 days later on Sunday 29th they take the opportunity to rest prop Ian Williams, second row Fergus Taylor and George himself as the oldest of the London Exiles club bring a young side to take on the Blues. Second row Andrew Grant makes his first appearance since the World University Rugby Cup as he returns from a knee injury and he is joined in the boiler house by last years replacement lock Graeme MacGilchrist. In the back row Fresher Will Wilson gets a start at openside with Nick Roberts-Huntley at blindside. In the backs fly-half George Cullen returns, which allows Andrew Abraham to move back into the full-back position with Matt Geiger moving to the bench. Kick-off is at 7.30pm with the usual match day arrangements in place from 6.00pm – as always please note parking in the ground is restricted to permit holders only.
