Ealing Trailfinders hit the road for duo of pre-season fixtures
Ealing Trailfinders will be on the road twice over pre-season as they finalise their preparations for the 2017-18 Greene King IPA Championship and British and Irish Cup season with two away fixtures.
On Saturday 12 August Ben Ward’s team will hit the M4 to take on recently crowned Welsh Principality champions Merthyr RFC at The Wern.
The Welsh champions feature three ex-Ealing Trailfinders players in their ranks in prop Nathan Buck, flanker Ed Siggery and fullback Matt Jarvis.
To finish pre-season, six days later Ealing Trailfinders take on Premiership new boys London Irish for a third time in 12 months on Friday 18 August.
They met twice in the 2016-17 season. Irish won 32-12 at the Madejski Stadium and then edged a thrilling encounter at Vallis Way 23-22.
