Phil’s comments on selection
Only 1 change in the starting pack with Iain Wilson making his long awaited return to 1st team action after an injury he picked up in the Cup Final of 2016. On the bench we also see the return of Gavin Cameron and Struan Dewar for the first time this season. Finally, Edinburgh Rugby have released Duhan Van Der Merwe who will make his debut of the bench.
Phil’s comments on the match
Despite a couple of tough weekends the players remain upbeat and focused on the task ahead. Melrose showed a clinical side to their game that was a lesson to our boys in not turning over ball.
This final fixture in the rotation pits up against a Currie side who are performing well, at times, but most importantly getting results. This means , as ever, we are going to have to be at the top of our game as they have shown many different ways to win this season.
I am sure the usual boisterous Currie home support will make for a terrific atmosphere and one I hope our boys respond to.
