Yorkshire Carnegie half back Joel Hodgson says he is looking forward to making his belated debut for his new club after being named in the starting line up to face London Scottish this Saturday evening.

The former Northampton Saints player joined Yorkshire Carnegie in the close season but has had to wait on the sidelines for the opening three weeks of the season.

Looking ahead to Saturday's game, he said, "I am really looking forward to it. We have had a good week in training this week but we know that London Scottish will be a step up for us from the opening three games and Bryan has talked about us needing to improve our performance, that is what we will be looking to do."
