A number of changes to the team that defeated Kelso at Inverleith last week.

In the pack, Scott Brewster drops out with a recurrence of his shoulder injury, to be replaced by Mark Wilson. Fergus is also replaced in the back row by Paul ‘Sully’ Sullivan, making a long overdue return to the 1st XV after some great performances for the Seconds in recent weeks.

Behind the scrum, Hayden has recovered from the various knocks he picked up against Peebles, and partners Struan Allan in the centre. This allows Borth to return to the wing, with Rob Patterson starting for the 2s this week.

Mikey Crawley makes a welcome return to the squad this week after recovering from the injury he picked up at the Gytes two weeks ago.

Riverside Park is not one of the team’s favourite grounds, results wise, so they would welcome a sizeable travelling support in attendance on Saturday. If you would like a lift, you are asked to please be at Inverleith by noon – the bus will leave at 12.15 sharp.
