Regions collide in the Bowl final, as recently crowned Scottish Hydro East 1 champions North Berwick take on promotion chasing Caledonia 1 outfit Strathmore.

North Berwick captain, Cameron Ewer, said: "We've had some pretty tight games throughout the season like our fantastic semi-final battle against Duns, eventually winning by a point, so I think the guys' heads will be right.

"We're expecting another physical encounter and, having come through on the right side of some tough games, we'll certainly be looking to take the experience into the final.

"For us it's not just about the senior boys and the 15 guys on the park, it's a match for the local community. I'm sure it will be a fantastic day."

Strathmore scrum-half, Gary Wood, added: "We have a good back-row that's always there at the breakdown. We'll try and play off quick ball, not get snagged up at the rucks and spin the ball wide. Murrayfield's a wide pitch so hopefully our wide boys can do a job for us.

"It's a massive day for any club coming to Murrayfield, whether it's the bowl, shield or cup. It's big, it's finals day and you have just got to enjoy it."
