A pre-match arrangement between both teams saw the game played in 4x20 minute periods, apposed to the traditional 2x40.
With the Gala management opting to change the team around at the end of each period, the game saw the majority of the team playing in unfamiliar positions for periods of the games. With new faces in the squad it was a real opportunity for the players to earn their place in the starting lineup. Some great rugby on show, however some points to take into and work on at next weeks away trip to St Andrews.
