Rugby Union: TEAMS IN FIGHT FOR SURVIVAL; BT Scotland Premiership.

THE two games in Division One of the BT Scotland Premiership this weekend will have a big say in who will take the drop this year.

KIRKALDY know if they put on a good show in their final league game, at WATSONIANS, they are almost certain to survive.

For doomed Watsonians it is the last home game of the season and they will be anxious to gain a first league win. Their cause will be helped by the return of captain Nick Penny and Aussie prop Luke Oxenham.

Although they have games up their sleeve CURRIE will want to move away from the danger zone with a home win over GLASGOW HAWKS.

They will be encouraged by the return of Nick Armstrong, John Shaw, Murray Thomson and Duncan Wilson.

In Division Two there are also two games which impact on the bottom. WEST OF SCOTLAND host EAST KILBRIDE and BIGGAR visit SELKIRK.

Defeat for Selkirk would mean they would still be in the fight with West and Kilbride, while Biggar would be safe with a win.

Also in Division Two, a win for STIRLING COUNTY at home to PEEBLES would take them temporarily to the top of the table.

A win for MURRAYFIELD WANDERERS against DUNDEE HSFP in Division Three will not be quite enough to guarantee them the Championship.
