Phil’s comments on selection
A clean slate regarding selection, we have picked the squad according to preseason performances. This sees Josh Scott, Ruaridh Leishman and Jack Blain make their league debuts for the club. We also welcome Andrew Simmers back after a year in the US and wish Iain Wilson well in his first outing as our new club captain.
Phil’s comments on the match
While we feel we have had a positive preseason, we are well aware it counts for nothing and this weekend is the “real thing”. Hawks will no doubt bring a determined and exciting brand of rugby to their new home, Balgray, and we will simply look to match it and then add our own brand in an attempt to take the points.
