Apologies for the silence but the last wee while has been plain silly to be honest  with 2 Semi finals , a PREMERSHIP FINAL and  the busiest Melrose 7s in a long time it has just been overwhelming.

So where do we start, Well here we go

Having at last won the Premiership through the play offs I feel more able to give a view which can't be seen just as sour grapes. To win it once is difficult enough to then have to have another two goes is almost bloody impossible. It’s a nonsense --why can't the winner get the league flag and then we play off for the Championship or whatever. It's been suggested  before but falls on deaf ears. So thankfully we won it and to be honest deservedly so. We had to play the opposition at their own game and take them on physically--job done happy days .We have had 4 yrs of play offs and have reached 1 semi--2 losing finals--and now a WIN--GET IN THERE


The Club had a great day yesterday at the Sevens. The team lost the final but the Club won the day with a great crowd . We strolled to the final but to be fair Watsonians kept the ball really well and sneaked it at the end. A missed opportunity but the boys stuck in and maintained our objective of committing to Sevens . As indeed we all should.


BT CUP FINAL-- 28th April  tickets are in the office so please don’t leave it  get them bought ASAP we are on at 4.30 pm---They are also available on the SRU Silver Saturday URL

It should be a great day - twinned up with the Edinburgh V Glasgow game its definately worth going to.

All you need is the Silver ticket--which is just the same as normal--unreserved in the West Stand. If like me your not great on the computer Christine can sort you out from the office  if you order before Wednesday 25th as we have to return unsold tickets .


I will miss the Final as I'm off to Spain before it, it’s a first but  unavoidable . It's been a long season. and with our Super 6 interview being this week -I think some tapas and a beer  with some sun might be very welcome.
