Old Actonians v LW 25th November 2017
24 November, 2017 10:46
Old Actonians coached by London Welsh legend Florent Rossigneux will be a tough test. Thomas Baldwin who's been so impressive in the second row so far this season is unavailable as is full back Jon Shankland.

Preview and team selection will be posted here later this today:

I love the fact that Flo missed his team's win at Watford last month because he was enjoying the pre-match meal and watching two of his former clubs lock horns at ODP. Now that's commitment!

Team is up, congratulations to all selected:

1. Marc Weir
2. Chris Carns
3. Samuel Mahoney
4. Cai Griffiths
5. Oliver Smart
6. Alex Laybourne
7. Morgan Browne
8. Tyron Pelasio
9. Ellis Staines
10. Lloyd Davies
11. Fred Clelland
12. Benjamin Francis
13. Rhys Howells
14. David Gabe
15. Rory Noble

Subs: Ben Cullen, Gareth Morgan, Will Davies

Amazingly 5 ex London Welsh youth players in the starting line up. Chris Carns ex London Welsh Griffin player also gets his turn to start ahead of club stalwart Ben Cullen at hooker. Impressive second row Thomas Baldwin is unavailable so versatile forward Ollie Smart steps up to second row, amazing S&C work from Ollie. Jon Shankland and Rhys Davies do not pass fitness tests and Rory Noble starts at full back.

Good luck guys #COYW #LWFamily

Always find actonians very good at spoiling/slowing down ball suits the narrower than normal pitch if memory serves right. Also one of my favourite clubs to visit.

That was businesses like performance on a cold November up against Autumn internationals.

Several rolling mauls creating tries from Cai Griffiths and three for hooker Chris Cairns. But nice to see a length of the field try created by impressive centre Ben Francis. Man of the match was centre Rhys Howells and there was first team debuts for back row Gareth Morgan.

A good win for the 2nd XV away at Twickenham Development showed strength in depth of the squad.

It was also great to see all the players coming back to the clubhouse and having a social sing song and drink.

Looking forward to Royston now.
