We are off to Murrayfield
28 Mar 2017
Here we go again. The BT CUP FINAL on the 22nd April at Murrayfield. A fantastic effort by the squad and Coaching staff means we will now be attending our 6th Cup final in the last 9 seasons. A quite remarkable feat, unfortunately what isnt so clever is the fact we have not won the last 5. So lets hope we can put that right this time. Our great rivals Ayr will no doubt have other ideas but we are due them one after the last play of the game defeat on the previous occasion we met at Murrayfield. The kick off is currently arrange for 3.30 pm BUT this could change if Glasgow beat Saracens in Europe this week. Please come along, we know Ayr will bring a good support so please lets match them , lets get moving .
A seven try fest and a physically strong performance was a good way to prepare for what is without doubt the game we all want to win. There's no hiding from the fact that this is the game that matters with Currie coming to the Greenyards with a one off opportunity to turn around a 25 point league gap. After 18 games its now winner takes all to reach the play off final. They will be very difficult to beat and we will have to be at our best . The boys are in good shape and are determined in their effort to ensure the play off final is at the Greenyards on the 15th APRIL
When you add the small matter of The ABERDEEN ASSET MANAGEMENT MELROSE SEVENS 8TH APRIL its one hell of an end to whats been an exciting season.
Theres a few spaces left for our Private lunch and bar facility in the Eildon suite on Sevens Day. At £85 a head including entry its a wonderful way of spending part of the days 7 hrs of entertainment.
