Weekend Teams

Both 1st and 2nd XVs play their Boroughmuir counterparts at Inverleith this weekend, with staggered kickoffs to allow spectators to watch both games.

The 2s will kick off at 1.30 pm (meet 12.30 pm) then the 1s will kick off at 3 pm.

The 1st XV will line up as follows:

15 John Coutts
14 Matt Morrell
13 Dave Hampton
12 Struan Allan
11 Alan Whittingham
10 Nick McCashin (c)
  9 Ross Samson

There are a number of changes to the team that beat GHA so convincingly last Saturday, John Coutts replacing Mike Hanning at full back and Dave Hampton coming in to partner Struan Allan in the centre.  The backs are otherwise unchanged.

In the pack, Scott Brewster and Jonathan Hamblin replace Fraser Morrison and Ruaridh Stewart in the second row, Jonathan having missed the GHA game due to food poisoning. Our new Kiwi prop, Rhys, makes his first start for the club, replacing Ross Anderson.

18 Ronald Clancy
19 Feargus Haston
20 Hayden Lingard
21 Toby Buchanan

As always there is a pre-match lunch on Saturday, costing £20 per person and starting at 1.30 pm (meet 1 pm).  All are welcome to attend the lunch, when they can enjoy the company of club captain Finlay Calder, while Bruce MacNaughton will also address the diners with his thoughts on last week’s game , the Boroughmuir game and the season ahead. Please contact Colin Rigby if you’d like to join him at the lunch.

A great weekend of rugby, then – see you at Inverleith!
