Walker, Chesters and Kenny back for Scots visit

Alex Walker, Phil Chesters and Danny Kenny return to the starting team for the visit of London Scottish to Vallis Way on Saturday.

The trio missed the opening clash of the season, away to Rotherham Titans, but all three were key players in Ben Ward’s side as they won the National 1 title. 

Chesters will take up his usual place on the left wing aiming to add to the two tries that he scored in pre-season and the 33 he scored in National 1. James Stephenson moves across the pitch to the right wing, while between them Toby Berridge and Tom Wheatcroft make their first starts of the season in the centres. 

Behind them Will Harries continues as fullback. 

Walker takes over from Alex Davies at scrum-half and will link up with Tristan Roberts in the half-backs, while Davies will provide cover for both off the bench. 

Club captain Kenny will form a back-row trio along with number 8 Chris York and Iain Grieve, while Adam Preocanin and Carwyn Jones pack down in the second row. 

In the front row Matt Thompson will start as hooker either side of George Porter and Nathan Buck.
