There is a familiar and settled look to our pack while in the backs Paddy Boyer and Brendan McGroarty return from their highly-successful Scotland Club International programme. Jack Steele and David Milne make welcome returns from injury and have been training well. We have a strong bench to call upon which may prove crucial in this tie.

Another huge match between these sides at the sharp end of the season. There is a real excitement among the players and they cannot wait to get into this game as a big prize of the BT Cup Final at Murrayfield awaits the winners. The triumphant Phil Smith, fresh from Club International success, and the thoughtful Steve Lawrie, will be licking their lips at the prospect of this encounter and I'm sure it will be a hard-fought affair. Undoubtedly this is an intriguing tie with lots of very talented players on show all desperate to do well. It should be an enthralling contest.
