GREENOCK Wanderers start the new year with a trip to Edinburgh to face a side they narrowly defeated 41 - 40 with the last kick of the game at home earlier in the season.

The hosts, Murrayfield Wanderers, lie second bottom of National 4 having played one match more than their Greenock opponents, who are four points above them fourth.

So tomorrow's game is a huge match for both sides.

The Fort Matilda men go into the encounter with confidence, with nearly their strongest side available as previously players return from the treatment table.

The partnership of McGroarty and Tyley in the centre of the backs, and Harrison at stand-off, give the stability and experience that is needed in the back line.

The forwards have been pretty settled for most of the season to date and this is showing in their improving performances. The partnership of Murray and Campbell in the second row has been functioning well, especially in the lineout.

In addition, Greenock have former captain and leading club try scorer Robb in the back row, and Cameron has been a regular at hooker all season.

The 2nd XV are at home to Allan Glen's of Bishopbriggs, whom they defeated in their last game of 2023.

The Ladies are also at home to Biggar in the cup, 2pm kick-off
