Down Inverleith Way 33

Down Inverleith Way 33

There are two very important matches this Saturday (10th March 2018). Scotland play Ireland in Dublin, but more crucial for Stewart’s Melville is the re-arranged league match against GHA at Inverleith as the continuing struggle against relegation plays itself out.

Please set you Sky/Virgin box, or even old fashioned video machine, to record and come down to Inverleith to shout on the team. They undoubtedly appreciate your support from the touchline and the turnout for the Dundee game was a little disappointing. It would give them a big boost to have a large and vocal backing.

The Senior 2nd XV also entertain GHA and both RBG teams will want to expunge from their memory the losses suffered against the same opposition back in October.

Hearty congratulations to Connor Boyle (pictured) who has been selected for the Scotland U20 team to play Ireland at Donnybrook on Friday night. Quite an achievement for somebody who has only just reached his 18th birthday. Connor is captain of the College 1st XV and latterly has played several games for the senior 1st XV. He joins two other Stew Mellies in the squad, Ross Thomson and Jamie Hodgson and the club wishes them all the best as they try to emulate the recent victory over England.

Well done also to Jack Blain who has been included in the Scotland U18 team to play Wales at Murrayfield this Sunday (11th March) with an 11.30 kick off. It is good to see Jack back after his enforced lay-off to complete concussion protocols.
