Inverness Craig Dunain look to step up to the Plate in Edinburgh
Inverness Craig Dunain Ladies will continue their Scottish National Plate campaign this weekend after defeating last year’s runners up Glasgow University in their opening pool game 24–19.
Craig Dunain will once again be the underdogs as they take on their second National One side in as many matches, this time travelling to Edinburgh to take on Broughton.
Broughton picked up a win of their own in the first round of pool games, narrowly beating Greenock Wanderers 10–5.
That was not enough to pick up a bonus point though, so ICD lead Pool A by a single point.
Although it is early in the group, this match could be a big one in deciding who progresses in the competition.
But Craig Dunain team captain Catriona Knott is looking forward to tackling the challenge head on.
“I can’t recall ever having to play Broughton RFC,” Knott said.
“We are travelling with a different team to Sunday’s win mainly due to being a Six Nations weekend, so the timing of the fixture is not ideal.
“We have focused this week’s training on the de-brief after last Sunday’s game and added in some fitness work too.
“I think it will be a hard game without home advantage, but if we learn our lessons from the Glasgow game it could go either way.”
