Richmond Name Squad To Face Rotherham

 

Richmond have named a powerful squad for tomorrow's home fixture against Rotherham Titans (KO 2:30pm). 

Following last Saturday's bonus point victory away against Cinderford, Richmond have made just two changes to its starting XV as they look to extend their lead at the top of the National League 1 table. 

In the forwards, experienced flanker Andrew Boyce returns to the first-team in place of the unavailable Toby Saysell who made his 50th appearance last Saturday. Boyce will combine with an otherwise unchanged pack with Timmy Walford, Ross Grimstone and Jimmy Litchfield set to resume their strong front-row partnership from last week. 

The back-line features only one change with the versatile Dan Kelly shifting from the bench to the right wing, replacing the injured Morgan Ward. Kelly will form a prolific back-three partnership with the in-form Hamish Graham and the exciting Louis Lynagh. 

On the replacements bench, prop David Banfield, lock Alex Bibic and scrum-half Charlie Mulchrone are selected to make their return to the first-team after missing last Saturday's match. While talented fly-half Lewis Dennett is in line to make his first appearance for Steve Hill's side since November.
