Find out who is in the matchday squad to head to Goldenacre on Sunday...

Watsonians Rugby head coach Fergus Pringle has named his matchday 23 for the trip to Goldenacre to play Heriot’s in the FOSROC Super6 match on Sunday (2pm, live on Scottish Rugby TV).

There are four changes in the pack with Harrison Courtney, Cal Davies, Nathan Borel and James Miller all starting after they showed up well of the bench last week in the win at The Greenyards.

In the backs Lomond Macpherson starts on the wing. On the bench Jonny Gibson and Kody McGovern are brought in.

“We’ve work well this week to get ready for the challenge”

Matches between Watsonian and Heriot’s are always tasty affairs at all levels and this one should be no different with both teams having won in week one.

Add to the fact that the TV cameras will be there and it is shaping up to be a cracker.

“We’re really looking forward to the game on Sunday and the chance to take on Heriot’s down at Goldenacre,” Pringle said.

“There are a few aspects of our game that we know we need to improve and we’ve worked well this week to get ready for the challenge.

“Heriots were probably the form team in week one [winning at the Ayrshire Bulls], so it’s a good measure for us to go up against them this week away from home - and a challenge our squad is really looking forward to.”
