2nd time lucky

30 Jan 2018

It was disappointing that the weather took its toll last week but we still managed to get a rugby fix at windy Hamilton where the Storm gained another bonus point win. With only Watsonians still within touching distance the next couple of games will decide if this young team can win the league for the 3rd year in a row. That would be some feat

The Wasps won 35-32 at Tynedale despite being 22-0 down at one stage , some win ,well done boys


Thanks  very much to the many supporters who attended the Super 6 meeting  and also those who emailed with their thoughts and comments

The meeting was positive  and there was I  believe a unanimous view that we should stay at the table to ensure we have enough information to make the right decision further down the line . We seem to be taking criticism for having done this but  for me the alternative of not taking on board as much information as possible is simply ludicrous.  As I said on Wednesday the professionals within Muuayfield may move on in the years ahead  but we as management of your club want to be able to walk down the high street on 10/20 years from now at least believing we tried our best to get this right--whatever right may end up being. As a result we need to be at the table over the next few weeks.


Back to business hopefully this week with the first of two visits in row to Marr. This bits quite simple really we want a win to get things rolling again. Marr I think need to win to have any chance of staying up. In what will no doubt be testing conditions  a hell of a battle is expected . There may be some distance between us on paper but I feel this will be a lot closer than the first game
