International newbies

Several Borderers are ready to make their Scotland Club International debut against Ireland in Cork tomorrow night.

Coach Phil Leck named no less than 16 first-timers in his squad – 10 of them in the starting XV.

Gala’s Chris Auld and Ewan McQuillin, and Melrose’s Richard Mill are on the pitch from the off, along with Mill’s teammate Andrew Nagle.

And on the bench are Maroons foursome Rory Sutherland, Gary and George Graham and Grant Sommerville, with Sutherland and Sommerville making their debuts.
