This weekend the Saints tackle a potentially challenging home fixture against RHC Cougars. The Saints are really looking for a win to get their promotion campaign back on track and must be confident after winning the away fixture earlier in the season. However RHC have a big pack and have had some strong results against the better sides while showing inconsistency against the weaker ones.
The selectors have resisted the temptation to make wholesale changes after last weeks disappointing performance but have named a squad that will enable them to freshen up the side depending on what they see at training this week.
The Second XV travel to neighbours Annan for a league fixture and will be keen to take revenge for a narrow home defeat earlier in the season. The selectors have again gone for a squad to allow finalisation of the side once injuries and availability have been assessed.

Those not selected for the final 18 will move into the 2nd XV.
