Edinburgh Apprentices in Weekend action - 16th September
With their second back-up match of the season against Glasgow Warriors on Monday, Edinburgh Rugby has fulfilled its backing to their partner clubs with six apprentices available for Premiership Round Three this weekend.
Watsonians, who go to Melrose in search of victory number three, feature hooker Steve Lawrie, while Scotland U19 captain Cameron Ferguson is included in the Dundee HSFP squad, who are hoping to pick themselves up from last weekend's first defeat as they welcome Ayr to Mayfield.
Heriot's, who travel up to Aberdeen Grammar, include prop Innes Brown, while Premiership Two early challengers Stewart's-Melville have centre Andrew Easson and winger Dave McCall in their line-up for the trip to Netherdale to take on Gala.
In Premiership Three, lock Fraser McKenzie is in the Dunfermline squad who await the visit of Peebles to McKane Park.
