Semi Final time
12 Mar 2018
Well we at least we now know exactly what lies ahead of us. We have a double header against Watsonians at home on the 24th in the league playoff and then up to Edinburgh on the 31st for the Cup semi. If your memory is like mine and as time flies when you're having so much fun you may just need a wee reminder of how our season compares to recent years
We won the Bt Premiership in 2011-12-14 lost the play off final in 15 the semi in 16 and the final in 17. I think it's fair to say we are pretty consistent but hell it would be good to get the job completed this year. But as we know getting there is one thing finishing the job is another
As for the BT cup well if we reach the final that would be the 8th in 11 years --impressive by most standards but too many silver medals.
Two huge and very important Saturdays ahead with a good team in our way. Games definately well worth watching
Before that we have our last game against Hawick this week. With 6 possibly 7 playing on Friday night for the Club International and with a few knocks from last week we are guaranteed to be fielding a much changed side.
With the Storm having gained their third National reserve Title in a row last week these guys will get the opportunity to gain a place in the extended 22 man squads for those remaining games. Lots to play for on our part and a hugely significant game for the Greens. It wont be for the faint hearted thats for sure.
It's unfortunate that this game clashes but the combination of the weather and a daft decision by the majority(not us) of Prem clubs not to give dispensation for the Club International means its an unavoidable situation.
