Match Preview Prem 2: Jed-Forest v Accies

Saturday 14 September 2019
1st XV v Jed-Forest, Riverside Park, 15:00
Our first borders outing of the season is to Riverside Park, where we expect Jed-Forest's Young brothers (although only two of three are available) to keep us on our toes. However, there were some good elements last week for us to build on and we are setting our sights firmly on league points.

Coach’s comments:
"There is a settled look to our forward pack, who performed well last week, with the only changes being Cole Imrie returning and Fergus MacKenzie coming onto the bench.

"The back line sees some changes in the back 3 after some good performances for the 2nd XV last weekend.

"We must take heart from what was, on reflection, a good performance against Aberdeen. We know we can create opportunities; we just need to learn to finish them."

2nd XV v Jed-Forest, Riverside Park, 15:00
The 2nd XV are also playing Jed this week. We had a very good start to the season against Boroughmuir, but it is never easy travelling to the borders and there have been a number of changes to the team, with some players debuting for the 1st XV after strong performances last week. However, the boys will certainly be looking to consolidate their position with another win.

The 3rd XV do not have a game this week.

Onwards and upwards!
