Homer to start against I Cavalieri Prato

Tom Homer will start at full back tomorrow afternoon for the Exiles in their final Amlin Challenge Cup pool game away at the Stadio Enrico Chersoni against I Cavalieri Prato (kick-off 2.30pm).

The full back made his comeback from a groin injury last weekend, scoring one of the thirteen tries as a replacement for the final 30 minutes.

He will be joined in the back three by Andrew Fenby and Alex Lewington with Guy Armitage and Eamonn Sheridan forming the centre combination. Shane Geraghty and Tomás O’Leary will partner at half back for the third game in a row.

Matt Parr, Jimmy Stevens and Leo Halavatau make up the front row with Bryn Evans and Nic Rouse in the second row. Declan Danaher, Kieran Low and Blair Cowan make up the back row.

Brian Smith, Exiles Director of Rugby said: “We have changed the squad up slightly for tomorrow afternoon’s match. We have added Tom Homer and Eamonn Sheridan to the backline and Blair Cowan and Jimmy Stevens in the pack. I Cavalieri Prato have run Stade Francais close on two occasions now so we know it won’t be an easy task over there. We have enjoyed this tournament and want to ensure we finish on a high.”
