Teams Confirmed for The Rotary Melrose University 7s
01 Mar 2018
The Melrose University 7s took a step forward today as the competing teams for the inaugural event were announced. The confirmed teams include traditional Scottish Universities, along with counterparts from northern England.
As Ladies participation in the game increases, we are pleased that all the confirmed Universities are bringing both Men’s and Women’s teams. These include BUCS Premier North winners for the 2017 and 2018 seasons, Edinburgh University Ladies RFC (EULRFC). Off the back of this achievement, Head Coach, Claire Cruikshank, said, “Edinburgh University Ladies Rugby are delighted to join the inaugural Melrose University 7s.”
She continued “As the home of 7s, it'll be an honour to come and play at The Greenyards and further showcase University Rugby. The quality of the teams attending should make for an exciting tournament. We can't wait!”
As well as EULRFC, the following Universities have confirmed their participation in both the Men’s and Women’s tournaments:
With team places up for grabs at our ASI Melrose 7s on the 14th April, both tournaments are set to be hotly-contested affairs. The winners of the Men's competition will be entered into the main competition. With the two finalists of the Ladies’ competition providing an exhibition match between the second semi-final and the final of the ASI Melrose 7s.
After the event, the club will be hosting an after-party from 7pm with live music from the popular cover band, Kickback. Tickets for the after-party are available to buy from our office now!
