KENNY Logan will make his much-awaited comeback to rugby tomorrow. The

international full back-cum-wing is in Stirling County's team for the

McEwan's national league first-division match against Jed-Forest at


Logan, who missed the start of the season because of an Achilles

injury sustained during Scotland's tour in Argentina in May and June,

returns in his current international role on the left wing. His optional

position, full back, is taken by Shane Williamson, the South African

whom Stirling dropped as stand-off last week.

Williamson was hard done by to be omitted after County's 17-9 win over

West of Scotland two weeks ago, and the Stirling selectors seem to have

had a partial change of heart. The thinking seems to be that he is too

good to leave out.

Jed have had to leave a blank at full back as the promising Chris

Richards has to rest a leg muscle that he damaged while playing rugby in

Australia. The expectation is that, by missing the Bridgehaugh match, he

will be fit for the Hawick game next week.

Two first division club captains, John Lonergan and Kevin Barrie, are

unavailable because of weddings. Calum (''Howler'') Brown -- not to be

confused with his namesake, ''Beige,'' the flanker -- will be Jed's

hooker instead of Barrie, and Stuart Campbell, covering Lonergan's

absence, returns to the West pack against GHK at Old Anniesland.

West have also listed Sandy Crear, in the hope that he will have

recovered from the knee injury he took in the friendly against his

former Ayr colleagues three weeks ago.

GHK, one of four clubs with maximum points after two matches, have to

make an enforced change at centre. Tim Sanderson returns in place of

Tony Glasgow, who is unavailable because of Army commitments. Heriot's,

beaten by GHK last week, switch their New Zealand recruit, Craig

Humphries, from blind side to lock and give 17-year-old David Short his

senior debut in the Inverleith match against local rivals, Stewart's


Short, past captain of George Heriot's School, has led the national

under-15 and under-16 teams, and as a student at Stirling University, he

was awarded the first rugby bursary in Scotland.

Alan Kittle, the Stewart's Melville prop in Scotland's World Cup

preparation squad, returns for the home club after injury. So do Murray

Thomson and Peter Flockhart.

Brian Renwick, back from holiday, resumes for Hawick against Dundee in

the Mansfield Park match between clubs each seeking a first league win

of the season. Tom Smith, the former Scottish Schools forward, is back

at loose head for Dundee.

Another schools cap, Jamie Weston, the former Merchiston scrum half,

has opted for under-19 district rugby with Edinburgh rather than

Glasgow. With the capital team, he will continue his liaison with Frank

Hadden, Merchiston's coach.
