GHA field 5 teams this Saturday

This week the club will field 4 senior squads plus an U18 team with 95 players set to represent the club on Saturday. This is a fantastic achievement for the club at a time of diminishing playing numbers within senior rugby. Well done to our coaches and thank you to all of our players for their ongoing commitment.

Head Coach Euan Clark has made a handful of changes to the 1st XV after their dramatic win against Dundee last weekend. In the front row, club stalwart Tony Brogan (pictured) makes his first appearance for the 1st XV this season after an injury lay off. James Edgar and Ross Findlay both start after good showings from the bench last weekend and Murray Houston comes in for Peter Jericevich who is away. Dario Ewing returns to the squad after injury and Luther Mavunga steps up from the 2XV after a good showing last weekend.

The 2nd XV have a top of the table clash at Stirling County. The Lions and Gazelles are at home against Dumfries 2XV and Falkirk 3XV respectively. The U18s meanwhile, are also away to Falkirk.
