So the 1st XV welcome East Kilbride to Annan for the 10th time and for the 20th match up between the team at a 1st XV competitive level.
East Kilbride hold the edge over Annan with 11 wins to Annan's 6. 2 games ending in draws.
In the most recent meetings last season, East Kilbride came away with a 10-9 win at the Everholm and romped to a 31-13 win at Torrance House.
The games between the team are normally close but high-scoring affairs. Over the 19 matches previously played it averages Annan 18 v East Kilbride 20!
So Saturdays game will no doubt be similar but perhaps more on the lines of Annan 20 v East Kilbride 18 hopefully!
East Kilbride are also celebrating their 50th year this season so congratulations to them.
A win for either team would consolidate their position near the top. For Annan a win could put then top if Allan Glens defeat Greenock (and various bonus point scenarios happen). For East Kilbride a win could put them 2nd and with none of the top 3 teams playing next week, a win next Saturday v Cumnock could put East Kilbride top.
So all to play for in this clash between the 50th Anniversary clubs.
My prediction for the game: A Craig McCann drop goal in the last minute for the win!
