This week sees stand in Captain, Callum Harrison move to full back to allow space for the experienced Davie Milne. Murray Godsman also comes in after impressing for GHK with Max Priestly moving to the bench.
Sandy Greig also comes onto the bench after getting game time for Cartha last week in his senior debut. He will look to be the 10th Hawk to make his Premiership debut this season after an impressing in the summer during the 7’s. He is one to keep an eye on for throughout the season.

In the forwards it is great to get veteran Andrew Kirkland back from injury, and Struan Dow who has moved back down for University. Both will bring energy and have a phenomenal work rate around the pitch. Lyall Archer moves back to his preferred spot at loose head with Ewan Rintoul moving onto the bench while Gavin Armstrong, who was a last minute acquisition to the squad against Selkirk, retains his place on the bench after impressing in training this week.

Obviously a disappointing loss v Selkirk and the score wasn’t a true reflection of the competitiveness of the game. On reflection until the last 10 minutes we had the same number of entries into the 22m as Selkirk however they were just far more clinical at converting their opportunities than we were. This is an area we have worked hard on in training to rectify to put us in a position to be competitive.
There has been a real buzz this week with a number of senior players being able to contribute to training as part of their return to play brining a real energy and clarity to everything we do.
Grammar had a great result against Accies last week and we look forward to welcoming them to Balgray as our first guests of the competitive season.
