Highland proving to be fit for National One challenge
Head coach Dave Carson says Highland have proven they are fit for National One thanks to their work put in by their former captain.
Former outside-centre Rory Cross retired from playing the game last season to take up a strength and conditions coach at Canal Park.
While only being in the role for a short period of time, Carson says his work is already paying off shown by an undefeated start to the season.
Highland have won both games in National One, including a 19-7 win against Biggar last weekend and also a Scottish Cup win against Watsonians.
Carson says the key to their earlier success has been fitness and has credited Cross with the work he has put in behind the scenes.
"A lot of credit has to be down to Rory Cross and what he has been doing pre-season.
"I have never seen the boys so fit and it is showing on the field."
