New look backline to face Accies

A new look GHA backline will take to the field tomorrow afternoon against undefeated league leaders Edinburgh Accies. With regular half back pairing of Gillman and Goudie unavailable, Jack Preston has been given the nod at scrum half and Frenchman Clément Tucoulet starts at 10 after an impressive debut off the bench against Musselburgh in the Cup. Fit again Max MacFarlane retains the 12 spot and Ross Findlay is at 13 with Ben Addison moving to Full Back in place of Cameron King who is away. Spowart and Edgar provide the horsepower out wide.

Up front, Michael Fox starts at Tighthead with Michael Scott (pictured), who captains the side once more in Goudie’s absence, moving across to Loosehead. Jamie McCarthy is set to face is former team mates and will lock out the scrum with Adam Barnett who is set to win his 99th cap for the club. James Sutherland returns in the back row.

A strong bench includes Scotland U19 International Adam Kerr and club centurion Chris Binnie.
