WATSONIANS legend Scott Hastings believes tomorrow’s National League clash between his old club and Boroughmuir will provide a rich contrast in styles.
“Local derbies don’t come any better,” said former Scotland cap record holder Hastings. “Watsonians will be the more dangerous because their backs can be electric. However, I’m wondering if the pack can be strong enough to cope with Boroughmuir.”
That view can only have been enhanced by the arrival of former Taranaki B team second row, Trent Sutton, for a Boroughmuir debut.
Meanwhile, ahead of second place Heriot’s home encounter with Aberdeen, another ex-Grand Slammer, Iain Milne, has thrown out a challenge to his club’s second row recruit,
“Murray Douglas is having an outstanding season (and) I believe he can be good enough step up to the pros if he wants to. Murray has great line-out skills and a huge work rate.
“Players develop at different rates and another in fine form for Heriot’s is Jason Hill while Max Learmonth has been close to earning a pro contract in the past.”
