Hannay heading back to face old friends

Nathan Hannay will face old colleagues on his Ealing Trailfinders debut as he heads back to face Yorkshire Carnegie, a team he graced for two seasons.

The big second row arrived at Vallis Way over the summer following two seasons at Headingley and he will pair up with Llewelyn Jones in the second row. 

In front of them Will Davis continues his return from injury by starting at loose-head prop alongside hooker Matt Thompson and tight-head Michael Holford. 

Behind them in the back row captain Chris York packs down at number 8, either side of flankers Danny Kenny and Arthur Ellis. 

Former London Welsh pair Alex Davies and Tristan Roberts team up at half-back, with Joe Munro and Chris Kinloch in the centres. 

James Love makes his first start of the season at fullback, while outside him Phil Chesters and Rhys Crane will provide pace and power on the wings.
