This week we welcome Al Kellock and Tyrone Holmes into the squad for the trip to Gala where their experience will be key. Tommy Spinks makes his first start to a match for Hawks and is joined by Andy Redmayne, Robert Beattie and Andy Fleming all of whom return from injury. Stephen Findlay captains the side in Andy Linton's absence.
Gala are one of the title favourites this season having been challenging for the past three seasons. George has his team well conditioned and organised and they will be looking to continue their try scoring start to the season. We are under no illusion of the challenge we are facing and we look forward to the confrontation. This will be a physical game.
