Coach’s Comments on Selection:
After a solid team performance against Hawick last Saturday we are looking forward to travelling to Meggetland to face a very strong and confident Boroughmuir team. Junior Bulumakau continues his run with Glasgow Hawks and we are sure if he keeps up the level of performance that he has shown for us he will be called up to Glasgow Warriors in the coming weeks. Jack Steele replaces Sean Lamont who is called into the Warriors squad and George Horne will start at 10 in place of the unwell Josh Henderson allowing Sean Yacoubian to start at 9. Brendan McGroarty comes in to start at inside centre to partner Bobby Beattie.
The forward pack remains unchanged from the weekend. Sam Thomson is welcomed back to the squad after being involved in the pro game the last few weeks and will start on the bench in the place of Fraser Hastie.
Leigh Tyley comes into squad to make his first appearance for the 1st XV.
Coach’s Comments on Match:
After an excellent win over an unbeaten Ayr team we can’t wait to challenge ourselves against the form team in the league. Boroughmuir played some outstanding rugby last week and defended very well so we know opportunities will be limited so we must be clinical. Boroughmuir play an open offloading brand of rugby that we also try to impose on teams so this should be a fast paced encounter with lots of scoring opportunities.
