Darnell McIntosh plays at full-back after the double salvo he scored in that match, while Jermaine McGillvary and Innes Senior line-up on the flanks, supported by Jake Wardle and Jordan Turner in the centres. Wardle junior has scored twice in his last two games, along with Joe Wardle, who scored the first try against the Airlie Birds last time out.
Lee Gaskell and Oliver Russell will lead the team from the halves, looking to replicate the encouraging dove-tailing in the last two games. Gaskell and Russell's kicking controlled the game against the Black and Whites.
