Three Reds return after long absences
August 4, 2000

Craig Chalmers, Willie Anderson, and Steve Griffiths will return to rugby after prolonged injury absences by playing for Glasgow Caledonians in the opening match of British Columbia's Coastal Cup in Vancouver tomorrow.

International stand-off Chalmers will captain the team.

Glasgow Caledonians' match tomorrow will be against the British Columbia President's XV (kick-off 2.30pm local time). While in Vancouver, the Reds will also play the US Pacific Coast Grizzlies on Wednesday (6.30pm) and British Columbia a week tomorrow (1.00pm). All matches will be at Wolfson Fields, University of British Columbia.

"It is the coaches' intention to give every one of our 26 players a start during our visit to Vancouver, with a minimum of one bench appearance," David Jordan, Glasgow Caledonians' Chief Executive, said today in announcing tomorrow's line-up.
