TEAM NEWS: Ealing v 1st XV 04/05/24

The Mob return to action on Saturday afternoon with a tough trip to West London to face title favourites Ealing Trailfinders at Vallis Way.

Head Coach Paul Turner makes four changes to the starting XV that beat Doncaster Knights on The Olney Field two weeks ago. James Flynn and Harvey Beaton return to the  front row packing down either side of Samson Adejimi. Olamide Sodeke makes his full debut alongside Iwan Shenton in the engine room whilst in the back row Izzy Moore-Aiono replaces Toby Knight on the openside, Nathan Michelow continues on the blindside with club captain Morgan Strong at eight.

Turner names an unchanged backs division that contributed six of the Mobs seven tries two weeks ago.

Ahead of the game Turner said “We’ve hit a little bit of form recently and have prepared really well this week after the rest-break. But Ealing are a quality outfit and rightly favourites to win the league again and they will present a huge challenge for us on Saturday afternoon”
