GHA looking for 2nd round knockout

?GHA face unbeaten Selkirk in the second round of the BT Scottish Cup tomorrow in what promises to be an exciting tussle between the sides currently sitting 1st and 2nd in the BT National League 1. GHA will have to be at their best to exert revenge for their earlier loss to Selkirk in the League in October and have announced a raft of changes from the side that beat Hillhead/Jordanhill in the League last Saturday.

GHA have five 18 year olds in their ranks including the returning Lewis Anderson at Hooker and Max MacFarlane at Inside Centre. Andrew Goudie at Fly Half, Nigel Kelly on the Left Wing and Euan McKirdy who is on the bench make up the rest of the teenage quintet. Andrew Boag returns to the side and starts at openside in an experienced back row alongside Donald Malcolm and Paul Harkins.

It will be a busy day at Braidholm with the GHA U18s playing Boroughmuir at 12pm and Scotland facing the All Blacks will be shown live in the evening (KO 530pm).

GHA team to face Selkirk:
1. Scott Carson 2. Lewis Anderson 3. Michael Robertson 4. Jamie Auld 5. Adam Barnett 6. Donald Malcolm 7. Andrew Boag 8. Paul Harkins 9. Peter Jericevich 10. Andrew Goudie 11. Nigel Kelly 12.
