The Met hope to get their promotion challenge back on the road with a home game against London Exiles. The visitors have won 3 of their last four league games, including a surprise victory against Old Johnians. The October fixture between the Met and Exiles was defaulted by the home side.
The Met XV shows several changes from the earlier fixture with Richard Borries maintaining his excellent form in the front row, Rory Byrne and Ed Garter now forming a regular second row partnership, while Doswell and Peters now join Richards in the back row. The back line has a familiar ring to it, however, with Healy returning to captain the side from inside centre.
Elsewhere, Bec Old Boys should expect to claim maximum points from the visit of Effingham & Leatherhead to go back to the top of the table while Old Georgians have a week to rest and recuperate.
