Match preview, ELC, Accies 2nd XV v Currie 2nd XV

Saturday 20 December, Raeburn Place, ko 1pm

This week we have our third Edinburgh League 2nd XV Cup game. We won the first game 44-31 against StewMel 2nds and our second game was cancelled by Heriot's because of a weather warning.

The 2nd XV had a tremendous result last week taking 61 points off the Reserve National 1 league leaders Heriot's 2nds - and to rub it in they did not allow the Nails to get any points. The win put us third in the table, just two points behind Heriot's who retain their position at the top.

Currie 2nds are in the second division of the Reserve Leagues and are seventh in the table having won 4 out of 11 games. However, we know Currie will not lack for effort and we will have to work hard for a win.

Our team to play Currie 2nd XV is: Callum Ramm, Josh Pecqueur, Ewan Campbell (c), Robert Wilson, Luke Taylor, Ciaran Armstrong, Ryan Godsmark, Duncan Morrison, Michael Liness , Liam Launders, Robert Lovett, Jamie McCarthy, Jamie Winks, Rory Simpson, Thomas Horton.

Replacements: Marcos Rodriguiz, William Marshall, Ed Stuart, Rory Bredin , Daniel Tomanek.

Coach's comments

Phil Leck said: "The team has been playing exciting rugby and scoring lots of tries. We expect more of the same against Currie."
