GHA v Ayr preview

It's back to business after all the excitement of last night's RBS Club of the Month award presentation at Millbrae.  Ayr head up the road to Glasgow to take on GHA in their second encounter in the RBS West Regional Cup at Braidholm, with the players champing at the bit to get some rugby played after last week's Cup clash with Hillhead/Jordanhill was unfortunately postponed.

Although Ayr beat GHA 33-0 in their last Cup encounter in November at Millbrae, they will take nothing for granted as they square up to their opponents away from home.

There are a few notable changes to the squad.  Nick Cox makes a very welcome return to the starting line-up after fully recovering from an injured hand.  Nick Campbell is away in France on Glasgow Warriors duty as they take on Castres Olympique in the Heineken Cup.  He is replaced by Peter McCallum.  Ross Curle returns from his ban. 

Team (subject to change on match day):

Grant Anderson, Richard Dalgleish, Ross Curle, Dean Kelbrick, Craig Gossman; Finn Russell, Murray McConnell; Byron Schmidt, Stuart Fenwick, Nick Cox; Scott Sutherland, Peter McCallum; Colin White, Ross Doneghan, Calum Forrester (capt).

Replacements: Hayden Wisnewski, Denford Mutamangira, Ben Rankin, Peter Jericevich, Cammy Taylor.
