1XV | SHIRE SELECTION
Tomorrow our first XV are back as we welcome Aberdeen Grammar 2XV to The Fortress, Woodside, for a Caley North 2 match. Kick Off 2pm!
This week Steven “Cookie Monster” Cook is back to business joining Liam Reid at Hook and usual Loose-Head Shane Laffferty.
No change in the boiler room as we stick with the ever reliable Second-Row pairing of Captain Frazer Forman (Sponsored by Allied International) and Paul Watson (Sponsored by Mother Goose Ltd).
The Back-Row welcomes the return of Number 8 Josh Taylor, alongside Thomas Dugdale at 6 while Andy Forman returns to Openside.
Gav “The Chav” Cunningham moves to Fly-Half this week alongside Alan “Titch” Stuart who moves from the Wing to Scrum-Half.
In the Centres, Jonny Gray retains Inside-Centre and is joined by returning player Tom Watson who moves from the Wing to 13.
Declan Coutts and Keiran Fulton inject some speed on the wing while, as usual, Jamie Stephen (Sponsored by Allied International) remains at Full-Back.
Our Impact players this week are usual Twas Captain Mike Mackie, Steve Shrewsbury (Sponsored by CG Tech), Ross Keightley (Sponsored by Xodus), Andy Falconer and Euan Robertson.
A boost from the sidelines will always lift a team, especially against tough opponents, the support is always greatly appreciated!
Afterwards, the clubhouse will remain open as ‘Shire are due to don their trusty Sh*te Shirts to help welcome former player, Wiaan Griebenow, back to Aberdeen! All welcome!
