TEAM NEWS: 1XV to play Currie Chieftains

Share this post

Steve Lawrie announces his squad to play Currie Chieftains at Myreside tomorrow.

Steve Lawrie is forced into making changes within the pack with Jack Stanley and Jamie Hodgson having been selected to travel to South Africa with Edinburgh Rugby. Duncan Ferguson and Finlay Simpson (last weeks 2XV MOTM) come into the starting lineup in their absence. The club would like to wish Jimmy Miller a speedy recovery following his nasty leg injury in last weekends win over Hawks. Gregor Nelson starts at 6 in his place with Harry Fisher coming onto the bench.

There is a late change in the back line, with DJ Innes picking up a knock in training. This means a slight reshuffle with Angus Guthrie moving to 12, Rory Steele comes onto the wing and Paul Cunningham moves up from the 2XV onto the bench. The experienced Lee Millar will captain the team.

Head Coach Lawrie on tomorrow's fixture, "Saturday’s match against Currie presents the extremely exciting opportunity to jump into the playoff spots. Mark has his team playing well and showing confidence. We recognise the threats they have and must ensure we play with the upmost competence in order to obtain the required performance."

With a full lunch, it should be a busy and exciting day at Myreside.
