The 1st and 2nd XVs were both in preseason action on Saturday.
The 2s, in their first preseason friendly, took on RHC Cougars at Barnton at 11 am. The Cougars, featuring their new player coach Ek in the front row, edged the game 10-5.
We fared better in the afternoon, when the 1s welcomed Haddington to Inverleith. This game ended in a 37-17 win for the men in red, black and gold.
Thoughts now turn to the start of the leagues this weekend. The 1s welcome the Green Machine of Hawick to Inverleith (3 pm), while the 2s will play Hawks at Inverleith (1 pm).
Before then, all players are reminded that a big attendance is required at training this week. Please ensure that you bring your subs with you if you’ve not already paid – £125 for wage earners and £100 for students.
