6th November Highland RFC 1st XV v Gala Rugby 1st XV
KICK OFF 3pm
The 1st XV’s next opponent at Canal Park is Gala Rugby.
Gala, currently 3rd in the league, are in a rich vein of form having only lost one game in the league so far, and that was to Ayr back on the 2nd week of the season.
Like Highland, Gala missed out on playing last weekend with both clubs fixtures being cancelled and rescheduled.
Last time out, two weeks ago, Gala beat Melrose away from home by a score of 5-26. They would have been keen to carry on their form with a fixture last week and are sure to be fired up for this one as they seek to keep the pressure on the league leaders.
As for Highland, they would have been looking to use last weeks cancelled fixture away to Biggar to reset and move forward from their defeat down at Cartha Queens Park.
As it was, the team had a free weekend in which they could have a break from rugby and come back refreshed and ready to train hard this week in the knowledge that they get to take on Gala at Canal Park in front of what is sure to be a good crowd on The Balcony and around the pitch.
Throw into the mix that Saturday is Ladies Day at Highland, the Raptors have no fixture this weekend, and that the 3rd XV’s scheduled away match against Aberdeen Taexali has also been postponed this week we expect the clubhouse and ground to be busy and noisy.
We look forward to welcoming a lot of you to Canal Park on Saturday to cheer on the lads!
