Saturday 11 March - Colts at Malleny and 1st XV at Meggetland and International Day
The day kicks off with the Colts playing the Edinburgh Cup semi final against Boroughmuir at Malleny at 1.30 on Saturday.Good luck and fingers crossed the result goes your way.
A vital game also at Meggetland when the 1st XV play Boroughmuir KO 1.30pm and the boys will be giving their all to secure a play-off place in the Prem 1 league competition . So much to play for and please come along and support Ben and the team. Everyone has been totally focussed at training this week and they deserve your support.
Make sure you look out for Donna at the game and she will give you a voucher for a free drink and a pie back at base at Malleny when you watch Scotland v England which has a 4pm KO.
At 6.15pm Scotland U20’s play England and the game is screened on Sky – stay on and watch this game also on the big screen. Four Currie guys are flying the flag for the Club – Cameron Hutchison who starts with Hamish Bain, Luke Crosbie and Charlie Shiel on the bench and all bound to be called upon at some time during the game
Remember, Wales v Ireland on the big screen in the clubhouse tonight – 8pm. Come and meet our Welshman.
Ben’s comments on team selection and the match at Meggetland
‘Another settled looking side minus our U20 boys once more. Dan Marek returns after illness and comes onto the bench. Ratu Tagive is not released by Glasgow which means Matt Hooks starts at 13 and Ru Smith comes onto the wing. Finally there is a very welcome return to the 1st XV squad for Ru Young after a long term injury which happened in the Sept 2015 fixture against Boroughmuir..
Although a 5-pointer at Boroughmuir in their last match of the season is a huge challenge there is no doubt we would have taken this scenario having lost to Heriots back in January. It is great for the League that the fight for the play off positions has come down to the wire and we are ready to give it everything we've got on Saturday
I'm sure Boroughmuir will be hurting badly from the events of last weekend and will use this to fuel their performance on Saturday. Although on the face of it there is nothing to play for for them we know they will want to put in a performance in their last home match. They have a number of individuals who can make things happen from nothing and the fact they can play with total freedom makes them very dangerous.
Please turn out in your numbers and support the boys’
