RUGBY UNION: L'Estrange comes in for first start

7:00am Saturday 8th March 2014


USA Eagles fly half Toby L’Estrange makes his first competitive start for London Welsh in their clash with Moseley at Old Deer Park tomorrow (12).

L’Estrange is one of nine changes made by head coach Justin Burnell as the Exiles bid to pick up from where they left off against Ealing Trailfinders last Saturday.

Welsh ran in five tries in a 39-6 win that made it back-to-back league victories.

Worcester loanee Josh Watkins starts at full back, while Joe Ajuwa returns to the side after some impressive try scoring form for Rosslyn Park in National League One.

L’Estrange forms a new half back pairing with Alex Davies.

In the forwards, Welsh field an all-changed front row.

Nathan Trevett, Nathan Morris and Peter Edwards come in, while Ian Nimmo partners Peter Browne in the second row.

Daniel Browne is named at No 8.

On the bench, new signings former Ireland Under 20 prop Paddy Ryan and USA Eagles flanker John Quill are set to make their first competitive appearances for the club as Welsh bid to maintain their push for a place in the play-offs.


London Welsh: Watkins, Ajuwa, May (capt), Tincknell, Scott, L’Estrange, Davies, Trevett, Morris, Edwards, Nimmo, P Browne, Lees, Kirwan, D Browne. Reps: Vella, Hepburn, Ryan, Stedman, Quill, R Lewis, W Robinson.
