Scale Up: 155/105 and do a third round.

Coaching Tips: The weight for the squats should be such that you can do at least the first round unbroken (not needing to drop the bar).  It is fine if you pause at the top a couple times to slow them down a bit!  The legs should be a bit spiced up from the squats when you get on the rower, so using a more hip centric pull can help you get a few pulls in before your legs recover from the squats.
