Well done to the 1xv who opened the season with a great away down at Duns. The team never took their foot of the gas and kept their structure throughout the game.
Tries from Steven Ketchen (4), Michael Holgate (3), Luke Randall, John Sprott & Aidan Dean secured the bonus point with conversions from debutant Alan Haynes (7), Ali McCormick & Steven Ketchen. The 5 year wait for a Penicuik 1xv drop goal continues however.
At the time of writing other league scores are
Dalkeith 69 – 0 Corstorphine
Hawick Linden 19 – 33 Livingston
Enjoy the bus home troops.
Next week the 1xv are away to Hawick Quins, with the 2xv playing a friendly away at Caledonian Thebans
On Sunday our mini section are hosting their ‘bring a friend or 3’ open day. This kicks off at 11am with free morning rolls and hot drinks for parents throughout the morning and there is a rumor we might even feed the players.
On Friday 8th September at 8:15pm, South Africa and New Zealand will kick off the 2023 Rugby World Cup.
This game (along with all Scotland’s games) and the majority of other games will be shown live in the clubhouse. For the event we have purchased and upgraded our projector to ensure large HD coverage of the event.
We hope as many members/supporters/friends/family can fill the clubhouse for the games to generate the atmosphere we all know brings excitement to all Scotlands rugby games.
