home play off in the bag

06 Feb 2018

Well that’s one objective in the bag with a home playoff semi final  now booked on March 24th. Although we don’t yet know our opponents we do know it will be a very important game with nothing taken for granted. You don’t win trophies in at this time of the year so whilst its satisfying, that’s all it  is nothing more. Mathematically we need 3points to gain top spot, so in real terms 1 win from our remaining 3 games , Heriots and Stirling at home at Hawick away. With teams closely bunched at the bottom that trip to Mansefield could well turn out to be a very interesting, but we have our own business to take care of before that one comes on the horizon


Our first ever vist to Marr was unfortunately a wet and cold day but we were given a very warm welcome and looked after superbly. The return visit this week  for the Cup 1/4 final looks like it may well be  held in similar  weather conditions which is a pity but we can't control the weather. Although last week's win was very comfortable it would be a big mistake to think anything other than this will be a difficult tie. They are a well organised side , well coached and have absolutely nothing to lose. With their league position now sealed they  can just throw the kitchen sink at us and see what happens--and I'm sure they will


The Wasps continued their good season with a close win over Gala Wands . The Storm didn’t have a game but visit Hawks this week with 2 wins required from their remaining 4 games to retain the Nation 1 Reserve Championship


It would be good to get a big crowd for next week's (17th)game against Heriots, these games are always well contested with both sides looking to play rugby. Heriots must win to have a chance of reaching the play offs and as said we need a win to finish at the top of the standings

Get the woollies looked out if not for this week then next--or preferably both
