Happy days

02 Oct 2017

If we are not enjoying our current run of form then perhaps a wee visit to the local shrink may be in order. 32 tries in 5 games is pretty solid stuff. However we should never take that for granted as every single game will be a test . Saturday was'nt actually our best performance but that's getting just a bit picky when you have  demolished a potential top four rival . 

We will face another challenge this week at Stirling, its always been a difficult place to play and they will be fired up by having lost to Ayr in a very high scoring clash. As we get deeper into the season injuries will reshape the squad so it was good to see Gav Wood play well and for Ben Chalmers to come on.. The Storm boys kept the pressure on everyone by also having a big win and they sit at the top of their league. The Wasps were less successful against Kelso , they have a small squad but those who are involved are very keen and  a good bunch of boys.

A Special mention should go to the Woman's team who won their cup tie which is a real boost for them , i think some were on automatic pilot after attending the Ladies day at the Greenyards. The club was really busy on Saturday night and i would just like to thank those who kidnapped me  forced  me to stay and have a beer.. I believe i returned to base around midnight.  Sunday was a complete mystery  to me. 

I will miss the next couple of games as its SPAIN time again. Paintbrush in one hand and twitter in the other, the perfect holiday . sad really
