Kenny leads team for first time at Hartpury College

Newly-appointed club captain Danny Kenny will lead the side for the first time since his appointment when Ealing Trailfinders play their second pre-season match, away to Hartpury College on Saturday.

Last season the Irishman captained Ben Ward’s team eight times and he will pack down in the backrow with number 8 Chris York and fellow flanker Iain Grieve. 

Further forward in the pack prop Nathan Buck will make his first appearance of pre-season alongside new arrival and fellow Welshman Rhys Lawrence and a regular from last season, Jamie Kilbane. 

Carwyn and Llewelyn Jones complete the forward pack by starting in the second row. 

In the backline Alex Walker makes his first start at scrum-half and will line up with Tristan Roberts, who made his Ealing Trailfinders debut away to Pontypridd a week ago. 

Rhys Crane is another to make his first appearance for Ealing Trailfinders and will line-up on the right wing, across from Phil Chesters, who will be out to add to the two tries he scored against Pontypridd. 

Joe Munro and Danny Barnes begin between Crane and Chesters in the centres, while Will Harries will once again wear the number 15 shirt at fullback.
