The final game of the 1st XV's season sees unbeaten league champions London Scottish visit Radlett Road for the final of the HM2 League Cup.

Watford had a hard-fought run to the final with a tough win away at Uxbridge followed by a relatively comfortable victory at home against Pinner. This was followed by what was arguable the sides best performance of the season, winning at promoted Mill Hill by the narrowest of margins for a first cup final in three seasons.

London Scottish had a somewhat easier route to the final, with every single one of their opponents forfeiting their match rather than face the unbeaten side from Richmond.

Watford visited Scottish in their final league game of the season, a terrible opening 25 mins seeing us concede numerous tries before the ship was steadied for a much more competitive second period. Watford will be hoping to take the positives of that second half whilst eliminating the mistakes which cost us dearly in the opening exchanges.

Selection was incredibly difficult this week, however in a real blow for both the player and team standout flanker Georgio Pitsialis has been ruled out after picking up a shoulder injury in last weeks game. Other than that, Watford had a full squad to pick from and with a strong bench will be hoping to put in an 80 minute performance.

Kick off is at 15:00, all support is very welcome for what should be a cracking game of rugby.
