The 2nd XV head to Dundee on league duty this weekend, while our Seven head to the Greenyards for the Melrose tournament.
Don’t have a 2s team yet, but can confirm that the bus to Dundee will leave Inverleith at 11.45 am on Saturday – please assemble by 11.30 if you’d like a lift. The match will kick off at the Dundee University ground (Riverside Drive) at 2.30 pm.
We face Gala in the preliminary round of the Melrose Sevens, kicking off at noon; the winner of that tie will play India in the first round proper. Our squad is as follows:
The bus to Melrose will leave Inverleith at 9.30 am (assemble 9.15 am). Some spaces are available for any supporters wishing a lift down – please advise Black Al ASAP if you’d like a place.
Mr Napier has also provided some details of last weekend’s Haddington Sevens. We made it to the semi finals there, beating Forrester (45-0) and Musselburgh (26-24) en route. We then lost 45-7 in the semi to the Boroughmuir first Seven who went on to win the tournament.
Black Al added: ‘Great effort from the nine guys, who not only all turned up on time but gave everything they had. After them all playing against Selkirk on Friday night, they just ran out of gas’.
The squad for Haddington was the same as one for Melrose, minus Sangy.
