1XV | SHIRE SQUAD SELECTION
Tomorrow our first XV heads towards Inverness to face Highland Rugby Club 2XV. The Premier Coaches bus leaves Harlaw Academy at 10:30am. Kick off at Canal Park at 3PM.
This week James Dooley is the man in the middle between Front-Row regulars Shane Lafferty and Lewis Emslie.
The boiler room features the very familiar Second-Row pairing of Captain Frazer Forman (Sponsored by Allied International) and Paul Watson (Sponsored by Loose Goose Ltd).
The Back-Row welcomes the return of our second Forman brother, Andy, alongside Thomas Dugdale at 8 and Duncan Angus at 6.
A bit of a change to our 9-10 pairing this week as Matt Lynch steps in to cover 10 with Mally White remaining at Scrum-Half.
In the Centres, Kenny Penman steps in at 12 joined by new recruit Declan Coutts at 13.
The backline remains pretty much the same after the Deeside game with the only change being a switch between wingers Keiran Fulton and Mikey MacLugash (Sponsored by Greig Engineering Ltd). As usual, Jamie Stephen (Sponsored by Allied International) remains at Full-Back.
Our Impact players this week are Josh Carr and our second Lafferty brother, Grant.
Meanwhile our Women's team, Aberdeenshire Quines Rugby, welcome Orkney Women to The Fortress, Woodside. Kick off 12pm!
Our Supa Twas also have a match against Ellon Rugby SCIO 2XV at The Fortress, kick off 3pm!
As usual, the bar will be open!
A boost from the sidelines will always lift a team, especially against tough opponents. So whether you're having a jolly northwards with the 1XV or staying at home with the Quines and the Twas, the support is always greatly appreciated!
