It’s the final home game of the season this Saturday as GHA play host to Hillhead Jordanhill in the penultimate weekend of the league.

GHA will be up against a team that –despite their lack of wins this season- have continued to impressive in recent weeks, narrowly missing out on a victory over Dundee at the weekend.
Last Saturday’s game against Jed-Forest proved to be a challenge for GHA as they struggled to break through Jed’s defence at all in a game that has been described by many as messy and frustrating.

Things began to improve for the Braidholm side as a more structured second half resulted in a try from Ross Angus that was swiftly converted by Andrew Goudie and put them back in the game.

A very tense final quarter was somewhat dominated by GHA, but Jed’s defence continued to thwart their efforts until a try from Alan Auld in the dying moments of the game gave GHA a 12-10 win.

Head Coach Craig Sorbie complimented the visitors in the strength of their game:

“They played well and continued to disrupt our play throughout both halves. It’s what they came here looking to do and they succeeded.

“We started the game playing very well. We stuck to our structures but then after ten minutes we just stopped playing. It was very frustrating to watch from the sidelines.”

With just two games left and two wins required to take the coveted play-off spot away from Stewart’s Melville, Sorbie admits he is wary of the momentum that Hills have gathered in recent weeks up against the likes of Watsonians and Dundee but says that it is time for GHA to focus on their own game:

“Hills have nothing to lose this weekend, whereas we have everything. They will come at us with all they have but we have to stop worrying about other teams and just focus on playing to the best of our ability and sticking to what we know we can do to get the wins we deserve.”

Kick Off on Saturday is 1230pm to allow players and supporters to watch the Scotland v Ireland match in the club house afterwards whic kicks off at 230pm.
