Round 14 begins when third and forth place on the table, Edinburgh Accies and Selkirk, meet at Raeburn Place to play a game which both will be desperate to win.
It was a tough day at the office for Edinburgh Accies last Saturday as they suffered a 41-0 defeat against their hosts table leaders Hawick.
Selkirk didn’t have such an easy ride either when their visitors Musselburgh rose out of the ashes to steal a 20-32 win.
It was a close final score the last time the two met, but Edinburgh Accies managed to pull through with a 20-24 win over their hosts.

Currie Chieftains will be looking to bag another win this week when they travel to face GHA at Braidholm.
It was a heartbreak for GHA last week when their hosts Marr triumphed with a 21-point advantage on the final whistle.
One-try separated the score, but it was enough for Currie Chieftains to finish on another win against Heriot’s Blues.
It was a high-scoring nail biter the last time the two met, but Currie came out on top with a 43-40 score success.

Hawick’s success just kept on coming last week when they finished their match with a very impressive 41-0 win over Edinburgh Accies.
Last time the teams met, there was no stopping Hawick who finished on a 52-21 win over Heriot’s Blues.
