Preview: South Wales v London

South Wales coach Anthony Seibold is set to give Matt Hutchings his debut off the bench while Jamie Murphy likely to earn his first start.

Seibold said: “After a strong effort away against York last weekend we were very disappointed to lose in the last minute, but it showed we still have a long way to go with regards to being smart enough to clinically close out a game against good opposition.

“Although we picked up a bonus point and have two wins on the board, nothing changes from our point of view with regards to our pre-season goal of winning five matches in 2010 and all our efforts and endeavour are being put into achieving this goal.”

Skolars pair Matt Carter and Matt Thomas are likely to miss the trip to Wales while the club have been hit by news of a serious injury to Tony Williams.

Coach James Massara explained: “It’s bad news for Tony – he needs operations on both his shoulders, so he’s probably going to be out until July or August. He’s got a lot of rehab and frustration in front of him and we feel for him.”

Massara added: “Last week at Gateshead there were a lot of disappointed people but we’re doing a lot of things very well. We just need to keep working hard and work on the things that we’re not doing particularly well. We can be a match for anybody.”
