Yorkshire Carnegie play London Scottish away at The Athletic Ground, Richmond on Saturday 23rd March, kick off 3pm.

The teams last met in the Greene King IPA Championship last October at Emerald Headingley and despite a valiant effort from Carnegie and a try from Chris Elder the homeside were unable to end their losing run.  Carnegie's recent form has seen them rise to tenth in the table and they go into this game, just one point behind Scottish, who bounced back from a 52-21 defeat against London Irish to clinch a close 15-14 win against Coventry in their last game.

Yorkshire Carnegie came out resounding winners following a solid display at mid-table London Scottish.

Within a minute of the game, Yorkshire were down to 14 men as Fa’atiga Lemalu was sin binned for a high tackle, and the hosts capitalised for an early three point lead. The Exiles would not regain the lead again as Carnegie came back into the game through a solid up-front performance.

Yorkshire scored their first of six tries within ten minutes, as they won a lineout close to the London Scottish tryline and caught and drove over, Joe Buckle coming up with the ball.

The second try of the afternoon was a carbon copy of the first, this time Antonio Kiri Kiri came up with the ball from the catch and drive. The third came in similar fashion as Fa’atiga Lemalu crashed over from short, redeeming himself of his early sin binning.

The first half continued with Yorkshire in the ascendency, as they stretched the ball wide time and time again to break the line. On 35 minutes they were awarded the bonus point try as full back Chris Elder beat three defenders to score under the posts.

Half Time – London Scottish 3 – 28 Yorkshire Carnegie

The second half carried on where the first left off, with the visitors firmly in control.

It took Yorkshire 14 second half minutes to score their fifth and all but seal the win, as captain Richard Mayhew burrowed in from short to capitalise on some lapse defence from the Exiles.

Scottish, though, soon had their first of the day, as they took a free kick quickly from a scrum, and shipped wide to find centre Tom Griffiths who scored under the posts, converted by Jennings.

Just as the hosts could sniff a bonus point, Carengie took it out of their reach as a well-timed cross-field kick from Te Rure was dropped by the Scottish winger and was picked up by Andy Forsyth, who beat the full back on the outside for Carnegie’s sixth. Flyhalf Jade Te Rure kicked for goal and was perfect on all six conversions throughout the afternoon.

Scottish ended well but two tries in the final ten minutes from Vukasinovic and Bright came too little, too late, even despite a late sin bin for Chris Elder.

Carnegie come away with a deserved five points, as they now sit seventh in the Championship table.

Full Time – London Scottish 20 – 42 Yorkshire Carnegie
