Holsey and Monks to start for Hartpury

Warriors pair Lewis Holsey and Morgan Monks will make their first starts for Hartpury in Saturday’s Greene King IPA Championship match against Nottingham at the Alpas Arena.

Loosehead prop Holsey and back-row forward Monks both came off the bench in Hartpury’s defeat at Ealing Trailfinders two weeks ago and have been promoted to the starting XV for Nottingham’s visit.

Holsey and Monks are both members of the Three Pears Academy and have joined Hartpury on dual registrations.

Warriors centre Scott van Breda will start for Jersey Reds against Doncaster in their Championship match at Castle Park on Saturday.

Van Breda joined from Jersey three years ago and has returned to the Channel Islands club on loan for the remainder of their Championship campaign.
