We had two squads in action over the weekend, one at Boroughmuir on Friday evening and one at the Penicuik tournament on Saturday.
The ‘first’ VII won their opening tie at Meggetland, beating the Bruce Hay Chiefs 24-12. We then lost our second pool game 36-0 to Aberdeen Grammar, then lost 14-12 to Edinburgh University in the Plate semi final. It was also cold and wet, just to make Black Al’s night complete!
We fared rather better at Penicuik, as Richie Munro relates:
“We were beaten in the final by Boroughmuir.
“Don’t know the scores but we scraped through the first match then won the next two comfortably, before being humped in the final.
“Still, not bad considering we were made up of only 3rd XV players.”
Amen to that!
We’re at the Howe Of Fife tournament in Cupar this weekend – details of squad and draw to follow later in the week.
