The Finals Chapter 15s Epilogue

26 Apr 2017

That was it! The Fifteens season is now over. Melrose have won the oldest league title in world rugby, The Booker Border League. Gala didn’t let it go easily, but an efficient first half saw Melrose through 35-7. Thank you to all the supporters that made it down to Poynder Park to watch the game and cheer the team on, and thank you to Kelso RFC for hosting the game so hospitably, and to Booker for sponsoring the Border League. 

Onwards into a double header of sevens this weekend. Firstly back to Kelso on Saturday and then Earlston on Sunday. The Wasps will be on the sevens trail at Jed Thistle on Saturday, so still plenty of rugby to support, but also a chance for those with injuries to settle back and let them heal.

The Fifteens will kick off again in August, The Charity Shield being the precursor to the League once more with a trip to the seaside to visit Ayr on the 26th.
