1st XV for Saturday 1st October

1st XV for Saturday 1st October

The 1st XV are on the road this weekend,  heading west to Laigh Bent to play a Hamilton side determined to get their season back on track with a win over the league leaders:

15 – Richard Borthwick
14 – Adam Broatch
13 – Scott Riddell
12 – Hayden Lingard
11 – Matt Hannay
10 – Seb Trotter
  9 –  Rob Patterson

  1 – Willie Aitken
  2 – George Turner
  3 – Reece O’Leary
  4 – Scott Brewster (c)
  5 – Fraser Morrison
  6 – Mark Wilson
  7 – Donald Sangster
  8 – Joni Hare

16 – Roddie Mackenzie
17 – Ethan Brown
18 – Blair Tweedie
19 – Neil Bowie

A few changes this week, with Liam (back) and Phil Hendry (pec) dropping out due to injury. That is offset by the return of Mark Wilson and Hayden, with Mark making a rare back row start.

Fraser Morrison retains his place in the Boiler House after a barnstorming 1st XV debut against West last week. Bambi also returns to the starting lineup to reclaim his wing berth from Borth, who moves to 15.

Ethan Brown joins the 1st XV squad for the first time this week after impressing for the 2s over the last few games.

The bus for Hamilton will leave Inverleith at 12.30 pm on Saturday – please muster by 12.15 if you would like a lift.

The Hamilton website indicates that Scottish Rugby TV will be taping this game, so – if you’re heading to Laigh Bent with the Red, Black and Gold massive – you’d better get a haircut this afternoon so you look your best!

Not got teams for the 2s and 3s as yet, but do know that both teams are at home – the 2s against Dundee HSFP and the 3s against Linlithgow 2s.

All games kick off at 3 pm – please support your Club!
