TWINS appearing together in a team is uncommon, and to find two pairs

in opposition is the sporting equivalent of spotting those avians which,

miles off course, draw avid bird-watchers into excited scrambles to

catch even a glimpse of the rarity. Rugby has such an attraction in the

match between Glasgow Schools and the district's under-18 team at

Braidholm tomorrow evening.

Tony and Tyron Greenshields, twins from the host club, Clarkston, will

be at stand-off and centre for the under-18 team. In opposition Gavin

MacLeod, the Glasgow High School captain, will lead a XV which includes

his twin, Roddy.

The MacLeods, centre and wing forward, are grandsons of Jerry Dawson,

the former Rangers goalkeeper, and that is not the only footballing

connection in the schools' XV. One of Roddy's back-row partners, Paul

Shevlane, is the son of Chris, the former Hearts and Celtic player.

Also in the pack, Guy Perrett is the first Bearsden Academy pupil to

play for Glasgow Schools. Teams:
