Trailfinders hoping for Davies magic in clash at Doncaster

Alex Davies set to fill in at full back after injuries hit Ealing squad hard

Flexible: Alex Davies

Ealing Trailfinders are looking to Alex Davies for something special tomorrow after injuries to Will Harries and James Love sees him filling in at full back for their away trip against the Doncaster Knights.

Off the back of their first win this season against Cornish Pirates last weekend, Trailfinders hope to capitalise on a weakened Doncaster with Knights star man Bevon Armitage ruled out through injury.

With his third change of position this season, Davies makes room for Alex Walker who will slot in at scrum half, alongside fly-half Tristan Roberts.

Also making his second start for the Trailfinders is centre Toby Howley-Berridge who earned the STORM watches man of the match award in last weekends 28-17 win over the Cornish Pirates.

Berridge once again starts alongside Joe Munro in the centers, while James Stephenson and Rhys Crane start on the wings.

In the pack, Will Davis, Alun Walker and Nathan Buck form the starting front row and behind them Nathan Hannay again packs down alongside one of the Jones brother, though this time it is Carwyn rather than Llewelyn.

Number 8 Chris York will again lead the team, between flankers Danny Kenny and Adam Preocanin.
