Appleyard drafted into Blues' 22

27th February 2004

Rob Appleyard has been drafted into the Blues' 22 for this evening's Celtic League fixture against The Borders at the Arms Park (7.15pm).

The flanker takes the place of Andy Moore, who has a chest infection, on the replacements' bench.

At the moment the plan is for the game to go ahead despite a light fall of overnight snow. The referee arrives from Ireland this afternoon and The Borders squad travelled yesterday. There will be a precautionary pitch inspection at 3.00pm with first news of the result as soon as possible afterwards on this website.
