OMAR MOUNEIMNE, the defence coach who left Edinburgh Rugby “for personal reasons” last week has returned to his previous club, the Port Elizabeth-based, Southern Kings.
“I was at a training session and Omar has already made a big impact,” says Kings president, Daniel “Cheeky” Watson.
Meabwhile, BT Scottish Rugby Cup holders Heriot’s face a difficult tie against Currie at Malleny Park in the third round.
The draw for matches to be played on Saturday, January 3 also produced a Capital encounter in which Edinburgh Accies will entertain Hawick.
Boroughmuir will visit the winners of Hawick YM v Lasswade.
An encounter between Kelso and Musselburgh will mean the quarter-final line-up will not be an all-Premiership affair.
Draw: Howe of Fife v GHA, Kelso v Musselburgh, Gala v Stirling County, Edinburgh Academicals v Hawick, Currie v Heriot’s, Glasgow Hawks v Melrose, Hamilton v Ayr, Hawick YM or Lasswade v Boroughmuir.
