First XV squad to play Heriot’s
The WFC first XV squad to take on Heriot’s on Saturday at 2pm at Goldenacre has been named: Chalmers; Bertram, Allen, Innes, Harries; Hutton, Harris; Borel, Graham, Fraser, Hodgson, Borthwick (C), Fedo, Nelson, Dods. Subs: D Miller, Hobbis, J Miller, Thomson, Steele.
In the starting team, Nick Fraser replaces Finn Hobbis.
On the bench Willie Thomson comes in for Murray Scott and is joined by Rory Steele who replaces the injured Jack Harrison.
Head coach Steve Lawrie said: “We were pleased with some of our execution in attack versus Marr last week, however the players have identified a few areas that are in need of a tweak as we prepare for this week’s derby.
“We also didn’t do a huge amount of defending last week so we will need to ensure we are robust in this area of our game.
“Last time out against Heriot’s we started with a bang and somewhat fizzled out in the second half through a mixture of good game management by our opposition and our own lack of accuracy.
“We have endeavoured to create a more consistent effort in our play and will need to demonstrate this on Saturday at Goldenacre if we are to acquire the performance we desire.”
