Coach' comments
"Thanks to Queensferry RFC our game against Hawick will go ahead this week and it will be great to have both the 1st and 2nd XV games on the same pitch.

"Monty Cairnes replaces the unavailable Robert Wilson on the wing and Richard Mill returns at inside centre. In the forwards, Chris Thomson and Jamie Sole return to our back row after unavailability and injury respectively.

"We certainly know the physical and set piece challenge Hawick will bring after our trip to Mansfield Park last month. We need to make sure we impact our game on Hawick and enjoy the battle."
