3rd Time Lucky?

 

Will it be 3rd time lucky?

At the third time of asking we will play Currie at 12pm on Saturday. Perhaps not ideal but we really must get some rugby played. We can all have our personal opinions as to whether play offs are right or wrong, but one thing is for sure it certainly ensures every game matters.

In the past come the end of the season a fixture may have had huge significance for one team but not for the other if perhaps they were resigned to a mid table finish. With play-offs that's certainly not the case this season.

Just look at the fixtures still to come. Melrose and Currie both have two games left to clinch  their  place in the top 4. Currie can clinch second spot with two wins, as can we. A bonus point may influence things in a tight finish. However If Currie take the spoils this week we can't catch them, if we win we still have to beat Selkirk next week for a home semi final. Not an easy task as they will want to sign off their league campaign with a win against local rivals but let's not get a head of ourselves, only this week matters to us at the moment

Currie will then take on Gala in their last match, another big  big game.

With the 6 Nations kicking off this week why not book a place for lunch after our Premiership  game and watch the Internationals in the comfort of a  nice warm club Bar

If it rains how many people do you think it would take to stand on the Greenyards with brollies up to keep it dry - eh my wife just read this and said " get a life". Not for the first time I may add.

Please  weather just be good, no more Hoolie Henrys our Irritating Iris's or whatever the next one is due to be called. It’s a good job we are passed F………… "OUCH " She's still there
