Selkirk – Ayr

SRB Game of the Weekend: Melrose – Watsonians
at The Greenyards (ko 2.30pm)

Having lost convincingly against Heriot’s last week the ‘Rose will be hoping to bounce back against a Watsonians side refreshed by their first home victory of the season. Both of these sides thrive when running into a broken field so the tactical awareness of Wight and Ker could prove pivotal.

Melrose will be wanting to explode into the game from the start, while Watsons will most likely look to build a game. ’Sonians have had difficulty killing off opponents this season, and if Melrose edge in front they could hold on til the end of the game, regardless of ‘Sonians renewed belief. The loss of influential line-out specialist Mark Rennie cannot help the Edinburgh side, either. Let’s hope this one builds to an exciting finish.

Players to watch: Melrose’s James King and Watsonians' Jonny Pelter
