El Presidente had the following to say about the game in the ‘News’:

“The team has performed exceptionally well under the guidance of head coach Bruce McNaughton over the last couple of months. Last season we ran Heriot’s close for 60 minutes before power substitutions from the bench made the difference. Our boys, yet again, look forward to testing themselves against higher opposition. This will provide not only the club but the players with a bench mark.”

I should also point out that club stalwart Nelly Young is now managing Spiers Bar, just round the corner from Goldenacre, and would love to see a few familiar faces over the bar before or after the game. He’ll be showing the Scotland game and the boxing on north Edinburgh’s biggest projection telly, and has also lined up drinks promos, a buffet and a race night – lovely!

There’s no 2nd XV game today, but they did manage a friendly run out against Murrayfield Wanderers 2s at Murrayfield on Thursday. We won the game 31-19, with tries coming from Euan Bowen, Toby Buchanan, Graeme Mitchell, Greg Ruthven and Nick Kesley.

See you at Goldenacre!
