GHA ready for Accies test

?GHA welcome Edinburgh Accies to Braidholm tomorrow afternoon for what should be a hotly contested match between two sides who like to play expansive rugby. One of the big challenges for Head Coach Euan Clark in the early part of the season has been consistency in selection with a number of injuries and unavailability as well as competition for places impacting weekly selection. This week sees Ryan Jenkins and Chris Binnie drop out of the squad due to unavailability and injury respectively. However, a solid performance off of the bench from Scott Plumridge last Saturday sees him start at Blindside Flanker this week and James Edgar (Honeymoon) and Max MacFarlane (injury) make a welcome return to the team. Clark has shown a willingness to put his faith in young players and this week is no different with 11 of the GHA 20 currently Under 21.
