After two games and countless shredded nerves the 6N takes a break. Good thing, then, that the weather is taking another bad turn!
Front runners Currie are away, while their nearest rivals Ayr are hoping to claw Currie back with a win at home. At the other end of the table the bottom two, Watsonians and Stew Mel, face off. It could perhaps be a cagey Saturday for a lot of teams with Hawks vs Currie, Accies vs Dundee and Watsonians vs Stew Mel looking to be quite tight and physically brutal. Also expect games like Boroughmuir vs. Melrose and Heriot’s vs. Selkirk to have some end to end action. It could be a much different story with West. While there could be some smart play from the Burnbrae outfit Ayr are able to tot up a fairly big score in their current vein of form.
Here are the games as they are set to KO:
Ayr – West of Scotland
at Millbrae (ko 3pm)
Heriot’s – Selkirk
at Goldenacre (ko 3pm)
Watsonians – Stew Mel
at Myreside (ko 3pm)
Boroughmuir – Melrose
at Meggetland (ko 3pm)
Edinburgh Accies – Dundee High
at Raeburn Place (ko 3pm)
SRB Game of the Weekend: Glasgow Hawks – Currie
at Old Anniesland (ko 3pm)
Hawks have a few games in hand and at home could be dark horses against Currie. Both teams look at their best with structure so whichever side looks after the ball better for the entire match should come out on top. Currie have a bit of an advantage when they break, but with both back lines having nifty backs able to exploit a space this will hopefully have some exciting tries from both teams.
Players to watch: Hawks stand-off Duncan Weir and Currie’s Richard Snedden
