RUGBY UNION: Jones praise for Ross

First published in Sport

Head coach Lyn Jones has praised Gordon Ross’s contribution to London Welsh.

The fly half makes his 100th appearance today, with Jones commenting: “One hundred appearances for any club is a huge achievement and honour, and Gordon fully deserves this accolade with London Welsh.

“He’s been a model professional.”

Ross is one of nine changes to the side beaten 39-17 by Stade Francais last weekend.

Tom Voyce and Sonny Parker also come into the backs, while Paulica Ion starts at tight head and Tom Bristow at loosehead.

On the bench, there’s a return from injury for Martin Purdy and Daniel Browne, and a place for Neath scrum half Luc Jones – son of Lyn – who joins the club on loan. With ten players away on international duty, Harlequins field an unfamiliar side.

Harlequins: Lindsay-Hague, Stegmann, Hopper, Casson, Smith, Botica, Dickson, Lambert, Ward, Collier, Twomey, Matthews, Trayfoot, Wallace (capt), Guest. Reps: Allen, Marfo, Sinckler Clifford, Sloan, Burns, Grimoldby, Chisholm.

London Welsh: Voyce*, Scott, Parker*, Jewell, MacKenzie*, Ross*, Davies, Bristow, George, Ion*, Brown, Kulemin*, Jackson (capt), Hills, Balding. Reps: Evans, Moss, Tideswell, Purdy, Browne, Jones, Ajuwa, Arscott. *international.
