Momentum is the key word on the lips at Ealing Trailfinders at the moment as they bid for their fourth straight win against Hartpury on Saturday.

The West Londoners won all three of their fixtures in January to get 2020 up and running in spectacular fashion, and they triumphed against local rivals London Scottish 42-26 last week.

The current run of form they’re on means the Green and Whites sit third in the standings, having only lost twice this season, and second-place Cornish Pirates are only two points ahead.

“We’re confident at the moment and just taking it match by match,” director of rugby Ben Ward said.

“Hartpury have a very strong squad so it should be a great game but we’re playing well and want to keep this run going with another strong performance.”

Ward has made seven changes for the visit of Hartpury, with Jack Tovey back in the side for the first time since October after recovering from injury.

Elsewhere, Peter Lydon has also been recalled from his loan at Bedford Blues to regain the No.15 shirt following injuries to David Johnston and Tommy Bell.

Will Davis, Alun Walker and Elliot Millar Mills start in a familiar looking front-row, with Ben West and James Cannon in the second-row.

Shane Buckley comes in at blindside flanker, with Jordy Reid at open side and captain Rayn Smid at number eight.

Nathan Fowles gets the nod at scrum-half and will partner Craig Willis at 10, with a sizeable midfield of Harry Sloan and Jack Tovey outside them.

Reon Joseph, who has scored four tries in his last three appearances will occupy the left wing, with Pat Howard moving to the right wing and Peter Lydon at full-back.
