Match Preview NL8: Accies v Hamilton

Saturday 22 October, Raeburn Place, 3pm

This will be Hamilton's second visit to Raeburn Place this season. Our Cup game against them at the start of the season saw us score ten tries. Although we should expect a win this week, another cricket score is less likely.

Our team for this week:
