You may have thought there wasn’t much happening club-wise this week, but you would have been so wrong. Firstly the Wasps travelled to Jed Thistle who have been unbeaten this season The Wasps needed to win to keep alive their title hopes after losing at home earlier in the season. Win they did --8 points to 7 so if they secure victory against Selkirk YC in their last game they will go into a play off for the title against Jed. A fantastic effort and well done to all the boys. Next up the Storm travelled to Peebles and by beating Peebles 43--7 won the Borders 2nd XV Cup. .So a good day all round - well except for later at Murrayfield, I think we probably should have won that as well? We return to the Gytes on Thursday night for an important Border League tie, the winner will reach the Border League final on April 23rd. It will be a tough one they are on a good run and have been playing well.
As we look forward to our last home game on the 22nd we will have some end of season entertainment. The minis have the culmination of a 10000 passathon, a fund raiser for their tour later in the year. We will also be experimenting with some pre match and half time entertainment and music. As I said last week we have had a good Premiership campaign winning 14 from 17 games and the job in hand is to make that 15 from 18, a considerable improvement on the 10 games lost last season. . So first of all Thursday night at the Gytes-then one last day oot at the Greenyards - we need every voice we can muster so come along and support!!....soon be sevens time!....and on that subject, remember the Aberdeen Asset Management Melrose Sevens draw is in the clubrooms following the game against Currie on the 22nd March.
