The Black and Yellows vs The Green Machine

After Saturday's result we know now that April will start with a bang on the 1st with a home semi final play off. Our opponents are still to be decided but whoever it may be its great to  have secured our first home playoff tie. Put it in the diary as a warm up to the Sevens the following week. Let's try and put on a show with a big crowd and a great day out. Get your friends, if you have any left, organised and see if we can push the boys into another BT Premiership final.

This week we welcome our Border Neighbours Hawick who will arrive with the intent of securing their Premiership place by avoiding a relegation playoff. For our part we need the win in our battle to finish in first place after the regulation 18 games. The importance of that is that the top seed after the semis will secure a home playoff final on the 15th April
All games are tough but this one promises to have an extra edge to it. Injuries to Craig Jackson and Neill Irvine Hess are progressing well but James Head is added to the list this week having had a head knock at Goldenacre.


The Storm are to be presented with their Championship trophy just before kick off, congratulations once more to them for having completed an undefeated campaign.

See you Saturday for the Black and Yellows versus the Green Machine.
