Team News | Knights Named for Cup Round 3 Trip to Ealing Trailfinders

Doncaster Knights have named their team for Round 3 of the Premiership Rugby Cup as they travel to the Capital to take on Ealing Trailfinders.

Director of Rugby Steve Boden and Head Coach Joe Ford have made 6 to the starting line-up that secured a bonus point 22-24 win away to London Scottish at the Richmond Athletic Ground last Saturday.

The front row hosts the first two changes as Harrison Courtnery packs down at loosehead for the second week in a row, but he will this weekend be joined by Knights debutant Tom Doughty at hooker and Karl Garside at tighthead.

Evan Mintern and Ehize Ehizode remain in place as the second row pairing manning the boiler room.

The back row also remains intact with Fyn Brown and Archie Smeaton on the flanks with Seb Nagle-Taylor at eight.

Ollie Fox and the day’s captain Billy McBryde are tested as the half-back duo for another appearance.

George Simpson and AJ Cant are both rested as this week Maliq Holden joins Jack Metcalf on the wings with Harry Davey moving to full-back to make room for a new centre pairing of Joe Bedlow and Joe Margetts.

The bench is formed by a 6-2 split once again. Harri Morris, Conor Davidson and Andrew Foster are named as the replacement front row.

Ben Murphy, Adam Hopkinson, and former Trailfinders man Jack Digby cover the second and back rows.

Kick-off is at 15:00 at the Trailfinders Sports Club on Saturday, September 23, and live updates will be available on our Twitter throughout the match.
