GHA hope to return to league action with a win

GHA return to National league action for the first time in 2014 as they face Dundee HSFP at Braidholm.

The Southsiders will be looking to bounce back from their RBS West Regional Cup final
defeat to Glasgow Hawks last weekend.

Now their focus will return to the league where they have four games remaining three of 
which against teams challenging for promotion.

GHA Head Coach Gordon MacPherson is looking to build on their good display against 
Glasgow Hawks a fortnight ago.

He said: “Dundee HSFP are a strong team and have a big forward pack. We need to play well 
and be on top of them in the forwards because that is where their main strength lies. 

“We played well against them up there going into the second half there was only one point in 
it. 

“Last week against Hawks we played some good rugby so there is no reason why we
shouldn’t feel confident and put up a good performance against them.”

GHA could have a big say on who gets promoted with games against Boroughmuir and
Watsonians to come.

The Braidholm side sit in seventh place in the National League 13 points behind Kelso who
lie above them.

Head Coach Gordon MacPherson is hoping they can finish in sixth place and put in some 
good performances.

He said: “It is a big challenge to play against teams who above you. We have had some good 
performances against Watsonians and Boroughmuir in the first part of the season.

“We are looking forward to it even though there is nothing really at stake for us in terms of 
promotion or relegation. 

“The test for us to see if we can get some more points and put in some good performances 
which is what we are aiming for.

“We would like to get up another place and keep on improving. It would be nice to get all our 
players back fit and finish on a high note. We have had a disrupted season in terms of injury 
which has affected our continuity.”
