Great Win--Huge Effort

26 Mar 2018

What a difference a week makes with 12 players taking the field against Watsonians who didn’t take part in the Hawick game.  we were pretty confident of putting in a very good performance  and  so it turned out to be. Rob and the boys had a plan and it worked. The physical effort put in by our players was immense, no more so than our men of the match the two locks Angus Runciman and James Head , they put in a hell of a shift absolutely mowing down anything that moved. It was also great to see young Ross McCann running freely and finishing off the hard work he is electric when given the opportunity.

So here we go again against Ayr who came back from 21-3 down against Currie at home on the 7th April . It’s will be a humdinger that’s for sure as we have a wee bit of history --The two most successful clubs in the country once more battling it out , they don’t fear us and we don’t fear them so  bring it on.


This week is a reverse repeat semi final with us heading up to Watsonians in an effort to reach our 8th Cup final in 11 years. Last week's result means nothing when that first whistle goes its 0-0 at they will fancy their chances. It's never easy playing the same side two weeks in a row , they will feel they had their chances and be positive in their mindset and we equally have to respect them and work really hard to earn the reward of a Cup final


It’s a busy time  so get organised--Myreside this week then the Greenyards on the 7th and of course the Melrose ASI Sevens on the 14th.

If that’s not enough you can always have a free day out at the University Sevens on the Greenyards this Sunday starting at 12
