Heriot’s rugby coach Phil Smith has welcomed finally getting a home tie, against Howe of Fife, in the BT Scottish Cup after winning the tournament last year following a run of away fixtures.

“We had gone eight in-a-row away so it is a relief to get to play at Goldenacre (on February 14) in the quarter-final,” said Smith.

Howe are top of National League Division Two.

“We will give the same respect we show to Premiership opponents,” added Smith. The winners will visit Hawick or Kelso in the semis on March 7.

Boroughmuir play Stirling at Meggetland and the prize is a trip to Glasgow Hawks or Ayr.

Boroughmuir coach Bruce Aitchison said: “Stirling have beaten us twice in the league so we welcome another chance to play them and measure our progress with a more settled side having used 47 players already this season through injury.”
