GHA will field an unfamiliar backline this Saturday with Andrew Henderson, Craig Sorbie, Chris Binnie all unavailable and John Brogan still on the sidelines with a shoulder injury. Ross McClymont will add a little ‘je ne sais quoi’ to the side as he returns to the fray after spending the last fortnight cycling the French Alps. Tane Jericevich switches to fly half whilst Dominic Dunn comes in at inside centre and Scott Lang starts at full back. Up front, Dominic Kellock is absent and will be replaced by Paul Harkins at 7. On the bench, second row Robbie Glen is set to make his first team debut after recovering from a knee injury picked up in preseason. Donald Malcolm captains the side in Henderson’s absence.
GHA managed to do the double over Ardrossan last year however, the men from the West coast are on an unbeaten league run at home which stretches back to October 29th 2011 and GHA know it will be an almighty task to halt that run.
