Well not everybody who attended Murrayfield at the weekend had a miserable time. The Wasps cruised to victory over Musselburgh by 50pts to 7 to win their Bowl final - well done to everybody involved for a really good performance. We must also congratulate Jed Thistle for defending the main U18 Cup, a great result. A good weekend indeed for Borders Rugby as Selkirk confirmed the obvious by easing their way into the Premiership. We congratulate them and welcome them to the Premier league, it will make next season rather tasty as we all fight for local bragging rights.
Our Development Officer Ross Millar will be leaving soon to take up his new position as Skills Coach for the Borders Academy. Ross has been with us for 12 years and will be greatly missed. He has done a superb job and has been a pleasure to work with. We all wish him well in his new role. Unfortunately it also means Ross will not be able to continue playing next season which is another blow.
We have arranged a friendly against Stirling this Saturday, it will be a mixed side as our Scotland U20s will be rested and a couple of other players are unavailable. It is a great chance to come along, watch some of our developing players and have a couple of drinks. Just having a game on the Greenyards makes a change, it will be free entry so bring a friend if you have any or bring someone else's friends, even better!
