Phil’s comments on selection
Stuart Edwards, Charlie Simpson and John Rae are unavailable for a variety of reasons. The pack only sees one change since the victory versus Ayr, which is Martin Bouab coming in at prop.
Phil’s comments on the match
Having not played for a couple of weeks, the players are desperate to get back into action and a trip to The Greenyards should certainly whet their appetites.With Melrose now assured a home semi and only needing a point from their last 3 games to finish top at the end of the regular season, Rob’s only job at the moment will be to keep his squad on task and not let them be distracted by looking ahead to the semis or upcoming Club International involvement.
Our recent win versus Ayr has given the players renewed confidence, that had maybe been missing against Hawick and Watsonians; the key now is to build on this and try to make sure we maintain some standards that were set that day if we want to extend our season
