London Welsh make four changes for tonight's Greene King IPA Championship Final 2nd leg clincher at the Memorial Stadium (kick-off 7:45pm) ....

Welsh take a 19-point lead into Wednesday’s 2nd leg after a 27-8 victory over Bristol at the Kassam Stadium last week. Tries from Nathan Trevett, Nick Scott and Carl Kirwan, and 12 points from the boot of Gordon Ross, cancelled out Marco Mama’s early score for Bristol.

The pack's got to show whose in charge right from the off and keep the ball for extended periods in Bristol's half. Hopefully, Gordon's tactical nous, our defence and the weather will do the rest.
