GHA set to host league leaders

GHA will face their toughest test of the season so far as they play host to National League leaders Boroughmuir.

The Braidholm side pushed second place Watsonians all the way last weekend before eventually falling to a 19-8 defeat.

The last two weeks have seen a marked improvement in GHA’s performances and they will know they will have to improve even more if they are to get a result against Boroughmuir who have won 8 out of 8 this season.

GHA Captain Andy Henderson is hopeful that they can continue their improved form.

He said: “On current form Boroughmuir are the best team in the league. We know it is going to be the hardest game we will have.

“Hopefully we can step on after our recent performances and put on another good display at home but we know it is going to be really tough.

“If we show the same commitment and attitude hopefully we can play well against them.”

After a tough start to the season GHA are starting to get to grips with life in the National League.

An impressive 57-16 victory against Kelso was followed by an impressive performance against one of the National League’s title challengers Watsonians.

GHA Captain Andy Henderson admits it has taken them time to adjust to the new level of rugby.

He said: “Obviously it was a step up in pace from last year. It might be at the start of the season we were a little bit of the pace in terms of getting used to the new level of rugby.

“Hopefully we have turned the corner and start to get used to that pace of rugby and hopefully keep that up.

The guys will take confidence from the way they defended against Watsonians and being able to put back to back good performances.

“Obviously we were disappointed not to get another win but we do have to take a lot of encouragement from the way we played.

“We will look at things we can to do better and hopefully improve on them and turn the performances into wins in the upcoming weeks.”

Kick Off on Saturday is 3pm
