Phil’s comments on selection
Jason Hill, Charlie Jupp and Rhuaridh Leishman drop out which sees Finlay Munro and Callum Bell get their opportunity to start their first Premiership match, Jack McLean also starts after an outstanding 2nd half last weekend.
Phil’s comments on match
The players recognise that Accies were a bit off colour, maybe even a bit deflated, last weekend and it was not a true reflection of what they are about. After speaking with Mark Appleson post match he certainly confirmed that his charges were collectively disappointed with what they offered and I am sure he and they will have better days ahead.
We quickly turn, however, to what is the biggest game of our season so far with both ourselves and Ayr unbeaten.
Pete looks like he has really taken to this coaching milarky and has his team playing really strong and attractive rugby. While we have picked up a few knocks I am hoping these will stand us in good stead for the difficult task ahead.
