Yorkshire Carnegie prop Rob O’Donnell says the competition within the squad and particularly in the front row is making sure everyone is staying on their toes despite the great start to the season.

O'Donnell returns to the starting line up on Saturday evening against London Scottish along with Charlie Beech with Lee Imiolek and James Tideswell making way however the former Worcester front row says everyone has their part to play. 

He commented, "The club have built a strong squad for this season and their is great competition for places. That is a big motivating factor whether your in the team trying to keep your place or outside of the starting XV and trying to get that shirt. The boys who come off the bench have played a big part this season and we all want to make sure we have an impact if Bryan brings you on during a game."
