RUGBY UNION: Ross reaches century as Exiles bid to stretch lead

11:00am Saturday 23rd November 2013

Gordon Ross will make his 100th league appearance for London Welsh against Moseley today (3pm).

The Welsh fly half and assistant coach, in his fifth season at the club, surpassed 600 league points in last weekend’s 28-0 win over Ealing Trailfinders at the Kassam Stadium, including his third league try for the Exiles.

Head coach Justin Burnell makes ten changes from the side that defeated Ealing for the trip to Moseley, as the Exiles look to make it nine wins from nine and consolidate top spot in the Greene King IPA Championship table.

Seb Jewell returns at full back, with Nick Scott and Alex Davies also coming back into the team, on the wing and at scrum half respectively.

In the forwards, it's all change with Nathan Trevett, Kevin Davis and Peter Edwards making up the front row.

New signing Ian Nimmo keeps his place in the second row, where he will be partnered by Mitch Lees, who moves from blinside flanker.

Daniel Browne wears the No 6 jersey with Carl Kirwan and Ben Pienaar making up a new-look back row.
