Pre Season Update
We recorded a pleasing 35-12 victory over Hamilton at Laigh Bent on Saturday, with something like 33 players being used. But there’s no time for the boys to rest on their laurels, as things get tougher from here on in!
We head for Malleny Park this weekend, with both 1st and 2nd XVs in action. The 2s game kicks off at 1.30 pm, then the 1s will kick off at 3 pm. Currie are also running a pre season BBQ that day, kicking off at 5 pm, should you fancy some post match scran.
Our final pre season games are also against top flight opposition, as we will play Aberdeen Grammar on Saturday 17th. Our 1st and 2nd XVs will both be in action, once again, kicking off at 1.30 pm and noon, respectively. The venue for these games will be the Queenferry RFC pitches – these are located at Ashburnham Road in South Queensferry, postcode EH30 9JN.
Bruce has stressed that the focus in our preseason games is very much on stretching the players – hence the quality of opposition we are facing. He’s also keen to give our (many) new recruits a chance to show what they can do, and to see how they work together in different combinations.
Keep an eye on the website this week for a summary of player movements over the close season, both in and out.
