Heriot’s. who lost 28-0 to Ayrshire Bulls last weekend, are in fifth place and will go on a winning run if they are to force their way into the top two and earn a play-off slot.

Southern Knights coach Rob Chrystie said: “Heriot’s have shown throughout the tournament they have the capabilities to cause any team problems with their attack and varied kicking game. They will travel with a point to prove and it is important we are focused and accurate from the start.”

Kelly said: “The squad is very disappointed about our result last week and are looking to in a performance they are capable of.”
