Phil’s Comments on Selection
We welcome back Liam Steele and Dom Martin into the back division which allows Ross Jones to return to full back. In the pack Clarke Smith comes back into the squad which allows us to field a very exciting back row.
Phil’s Comments on the Match
The players are excited to get back into it after a blank Saturday. Our league win against Stirling has put us back into contention in the league so we are now looking to put in a performance in the Cup to maintain the momentum.
Accies are obviously going well, and having played them in preseason, where we claimed a narrow win, we know we are playing a side full of confidence who will be looking to take a Premiership scalp. Alongside that we also have players looking for the bragging rights in the North of the city.
The excitement of the Cup never waivers and I am sure players and coaches will be looking to put on a spectacle before heading along to Murrayfield to watch Scotland finally defeat the All Blacks.
