Teams for Saturday 8th October

The undefeated 1st XV are at home on Saturday, and welcome Whitecraigs to Inverleith for what I am assuming is the first ever fixture between the two clubs (until Black Al tells me otherwise!)

The team is as follows:

15 – Richard Borthwick
14 – Matt Hannay
13 – Scott Riddell
12 – Jamie Allan
11 – Andy Hughes
10 – Seb Trotter
  9 – Rob Patterson

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

16 – Roddie Mackenzie
17 – Ethan Brown
18 – Fraser Morrison
19 – Neil Bowie

There are three changes this week. With Hayden sidelined again after pulling up during the Hamilton game, he is replaced in the centre by Jamie Allan. Andy Hughes returns to the team to replace Bambi on the wing.

In the pack, Mark Wilson returns to the Boiler House, with Blair Tweedie replacing him in the back row. Fraser Morrison starts on the bench this week. Kick off is 3 pm.

The 2nd XV are on the road this week, making the short trip up to Myreside to play Watsonians.

The team is:

15 – Stephen Macdonald
14 – Joe Parvin
13 – Jordan Kynoch
12 – Fraser Rankine
11 – Adam Broatch 
10 – Michael Hanning
  9 – Rob Primrose

  7 – Andy Fraser
  8 – Adam Howie

16 – Ali Baxter
17 – Nick Kesley
18 – Michael Hooks
19 – Christy O’Donnell
20 – Fergus Lamont

Players are asked to meet by 1.30 pm for a 3 pm kickoff.

The Mighty 3s are also in action on the south side, taking on Edinburgh University at Peffermill. No team details yet, but it’s a given that Team Manager Richie will have assembled a stellar squad to take on (and I quote) ‘the tax dodgers’.

Please get out there and support your teams.
