Phil’s comments on selection
Jack Cuthbert is the only change to the starting XV from last weekend. Alex Ball has recovered to take his place on the bench.
Phil’s comments on match
Both the 1st’s and the Blues were delighted to come away with hard fought wins from Ayr last weekend. This meant the bus trip home, which included a stop at the clubhouse of near neighbours Stewart’s Melville, due to boiler issues at Goldenacre, was a bit more jovial than normal, many many thanks to Denise, our fantastic host at Inverleith.
Our thoughts quickly move to Stirling County and our final game of the year at Goldenacre. Eddie has Stirling playing a very difficult to defend brand of rugby, with threats all over the park. We need to ensure we are switched on from the start and get into our stride as quickly as possible.
While we have taken some confidence from last weekend, we are also aware that almost every team in the league is capable of winning against another.
