President's Message

Royal Appearance

20 Apr 2017

It has taken a wee while to get over the disappointment of Saturday when it felt like another one got away. Balls not bouncing the way you hoped, and the rub of the green in the 50:50 situations never letting the pressure off ourselves, and you can’t get away with these things against a side like Ayr.


Anyway, now we are back this week on an arguably bigger stage at the national stadium against the same opposition. It is a big ask to get the players back into the right frame of mind for the challenge, and one of the biggest factors will be the positive support we can give the team. We’ll be playing in front of HRH Princess Anne, so let’s give them all the encouragement we can.


In the meantime we are sending a seven to Langholm and a Wasps seven to Selkirk so if you can’t make it to Murrayfield, please go and support them in their respective tournaments.
