Sevens men in for Watsonians

WATSONIANS have been boosted by the return of three players fresh from Scotland Sevens duty in Hong Kong as they go to Old Anniesland this afternoon for a match that will have a big bearing on their Scottish Hydro Premier One future.

The Myreside men currently lie second bottom of the table, but know a win in the rearranged match with Glasgow Hawks will put them above their relegation rivals Edinburgh Accies.

Edinburgh pro Andrew Turnbull plus young back-row duo Stuart McInally and Mike Fedo are named in the Watsonians side, as is Richard Minto, who has been out with injury for nearly eight months.
