1ST XV ON THE ROAD TO OBAN
STOP PRESS: Lost 50-10….end of message. Match Report and Photos – Now Online
The 1st XV face the long trek to Oban on Saturday for their latest West 1 match.
The lads have lost their last 5 matches and are now in the relegation mix so a big performance on Saturday is a must.
With Ardrossan seemingly running away with the league, Oban were looking like the only team to perhaps challenge but were surprisingly beaten last week by Kilmarnock
Both teams need the win, for Annan its to stop the rot and climb out of the relegation spots while for Oban its to keep up their slim promotion chance.
For the record, the teams have played 4 times with Annan coming out on top each time. We could do with this record to be maintained on Saturday!
Starting XV: 1. Ryan Glass 2. Kieran Warrick (C) 3. Ronnie Martin 4. Frazer Hope 5. Callum Taylor 6. James Morrison 7. Callum Smith 8. Sean Haren (CC) 9. Fraser McMillan 10. Josh Whiteside 11. James Kirby 12. Adam Torbett 13. Alex Halliday (CC) 14. James Park 15. Andrew Jancey1
Subs: 16. Murray Forbes 17. Ben Sweeney 18. Max Thorburn 19. John Glendinning
2ND XV HAVE A HOME DERBY MATCH
STOP PRESS: The lads go down 22-36. Match Report, Tries and Full Match – Now Online
The 2nd XV have a home match on Saturday against Galloway (Stewartry, Newton Stewart and Wigtownshire)
The 2nd XV’s match last week was cancelled as we could not raise a team but hopefully a derby match will bring out the players
The lads have not won all season but have yet to have a settled team with 48 (!) players turning out so far in just 6 matches.
Squad 1) Craig Bell 2) John Mackay 3) Craig Stefaniuk 4) Thomas Martindale 5) Dan Burns 6) Kyle Bell
8) Stuart Wyllie 9) Simon Dix 10)Scott Muir 11)Jack Ogilvie 12) George Forest 13) Kieran Johnston 14) John Glendinning 15) Bradley James 16)Sean Armstrong 17) Tam Thorburn
WARRIORS AT HOME TO BIGGAR
STOP PRESS: Warriors go down 21-58. Match Report. Tries and Full Match – Now Online
The Warriors face a tough match once again on Sunday as they host Biggar Ladies
Biggar are neck and neck with Ayr Ladies for the title spot so the Warriors will need be firing on all cylinders to get something from this match.
Coach Warrick will be wanting a more settled squad for Sunday’s match after numerous last second changes the last couple of weeks,
A big Warrior support would be appreciated as always by the players
