Team News – Watsonians V Heriot’s Rugby

Head Coach Phil Smith’s Comments on Selection and The Match

A fairly settled group, mainly because we only have 22 fit players. However, we have a timely boost in the midfield with Chris Dean being released by Edinburgh. Finlay Scott returns from his short-term return to Southern Knights, while Dan Nutton comes back into the squad having missed the Boroughmuir match.

Our last match v Boroughmuir seems a long time ago now, however, I hope we are able to take off where we left off that day. It was a real rise in performance, with lots of what we have been working bearing fruit in a commanding all round performance.

Watsonian’s will undoubtedly bring different challenges, with strong defence and a challenging set piece, two areas that we know we will need to be sharp to respond to. At the same time, they are hungry to get back to it on a floodlight, busy, Valentines evening at Myreside, with the chance to go top for the 1st time this season.
