Lanarkshire will certainly be no pushover at home but not invincible as they have already lost to West of Scotland so could be vulnerable if pressured by a strong West Lothian team performance.

WL selectors Neil Speirs and Bryan Cooper make three changes in personnel with the recall of Mark Allison and seasonal debuts being made by Darren Pearce and Alan McCormick. The absentees are Des Hagart, George Sneddon, and Nathan McKendrick in a line up that reads, Rink 1. Bryan Cooper, Ian Drysdale (cpt) Mark Allison, and Neil Speirs (skip). Rink 2. Darren Pearce, Raymond Logan, Cameron Greer, and Calum Logan (skip). Rink 3. Connor McKendrick, Dougie Mitchell, Jamie Aitken, and Craig Moss (skip). Rink 4. Richard Mark, Alan McCormick, Gary Orr, and James Speirs.

Balbardie gents make the long journey North to tackle table-toppers Fraserburgh and will have to perform up to their best levels to have any chance of making the return journey a happy one. 

West Lothian ladies have home carpet advantage against East Lothian in the East Premier Division while Balbardie are also at home for the match against Teviotdale in Division 1 East.

 The play-down action of the gents national junior singles played at Falkirk last weekend saw WL challenger Nathan McKendrick suffer a 21-14 first round defeat from Connor Milne of Turriff who had dealt Cameron Fraser of Balbardie a 21-9 exit in the prelim round.
