Disappointment but Silver Linings
There have been many cover versions of the song "What a difference a day makes". I can tell you 7 days make an even bigger one. Ayr produced their own version and produced one of if not their best displays of the season. At the same time we coughed up a number of early mistakes that left us chasing the game. Charged down kicks, poor line kicking and they punished us. So all we can do is say well done to Ayr who thoroughly deserve to go into the play off final.
For ourselves, we have quite a tough draw in our own sevens this week and then its full out for a day at Murrayfield. So let's not dwell on last week and let's look forward to a couple of big Saturdays.
The Wasps (who won Kelso Quins Sevens on Saturday) play Berwick at Duns in a league game this Wednesday so best of luck to them. The Storm (who were runners-up at Haddington Sevens) will be at the John Laing 7s on Tuesday.
The Ladies had a tough afternoon on Sunday especially with Emma Pate suffering an injury that stopped the game . We wish her all the best, Emma is a real stalwart for the Ladies and does a tremendous amount of rugby work through her teaching role at Earlston.
Enjoy the Sevens and see you at Murrayfield.
