You might have heard, but this week Brora Rangers pulled off one of the biggest shocks in Scottish Cup history be defeating Championship leaders Hearts, so of course that's what leading the way in the latest episode of Balls & Whistles.

Will is on annual leave, so Andrew is joined by Alasdair Fraser for the second week in-a-row to dissect the Cattachs' monumental victory and what it meant to the players.

Inverness Caledonian Thistle also set up a Scottish Cup third round match against Ross County by overcoming Buckie Thistle, but first they have to face Arbroath in the league tomorrow - while with the Staggies' idle this weekend because of the international break the guys discuss John Hughes' future at the club.

There is also news on fundraising challenges from both Inverness Athletic and Ross Sutherland Rugby Club, while reigning North of Scotland cricket champions Highland look like they will be forced to pull out of the senior league this year.
