Edinburgh, who made it to the final last summer, know they will need to be at their best if they are to compete with an in-form Mazars Grange side.

They meet at Campbell Park this evening and, with Grange having seven players in the Eastern Knights representative set-up currently, they should be too strong. Three ties are due to be played tomorrow, Carlton taking on SMRH, Stuart&Stuart Penicuik travelling into the Capital to face Murrayfield DAFS and Linlithgow hosting Edinburgh Accies.

Carlton should be favourites in the first tie, but Michael Miller did score a century for SMRH in round one and could be a danger man at Grange Loan.

The DAFS-Penicuik clash is likely to be a tight affair while Accies will be hopeful of getting a victory in West Lothian.
