SCOTTISH RUGBY: Hawick have chance to reclaim Bill McLaren Shield
Picture: Hawick and Boroughmuir playing in the first Bill McLaren Shield match, on Saturday 3 September 2011.
This weekend in the RBS Premiership, Hawick will have their first chance to reclaim the Bill McLaren Shield, since the prestigious trophy was first contested in September 2011, when they travel to Raeburn Place to play Edinburgh Accies.
Currie and Ayr will look to make amends for a tough start to their respective seasons when they meet at Millbrae tomorrow. Currie are the only team yet to win a game and Ayr suffered a heavy home defeat to Melrose last weekend.
In the Borders, current league leaders, Melrose return home to the Greenyards to play Glasgow Hawks, while neighbours Gala welcome Aberdeen Grammar to Netherdale.
Finally, Stirling County and Heriot’s will look to build on last week’s victories when they lock horns at Bridgehaugh.
