So the 1st XV welcome Kilmarnock 1st XV to Annan for the 14th time at a 1st XV competitive level. Founded in 1868 the Ayrshire team are celebrating their 150th year!
The teams have met at a 2nd XV and 1st XV v 2nd XV level in the past but it wasnt until 2000 that the 1st XV's finally met.
And with the teams meeting 12 times at Kilmarnock, it will be the 26th meeting between the respective 1st XV's
It's currently Annan with 11 wins and Kilmarnock with 13 wins. 1 match was a draw.
It really is a fixture where home advantage seems to play with Annan winning 9 times at Violetbank and Kilmarnock 10 times at Bellsland.
The last trip to Violetbank for Kilmarnock though was a win for the Ayrshire team. 25-31.
Both teams have lost their last 2 games so both will be wanting to stop the rot before it gets out of hand!
On average both teams score 19 points in this fixture. Annan having scored 488 points and Kilmarnock 478 in the 25 previous matches.
So chances are it will be Kilmarnock with a 19-17 lead going into the final minute......
My prediction for the game: A Craig McCann drop goal in the last minute for the win!
