Could have, should have? didn’t. Losing the game in the 5th minute of injury was tough, really tough, but that’s sport. You have to take your chances, minimise your mistakes and stay calm and we didn’t do that throughout the 80 odd minutes. I have to say if we had won the game in the way Heriots did we would have been very pleased with ourselves. They stayed positive and gave it a go in that last play, players were tired, that’s when mistakes can happen and it came off for them. So we must applaud their determination and congratulate them. It’s a great feeling to win a Championship so I'm sure they all enjoyed their night and probably next day as well, deservedly so.
For our part we start again ,some of the guys will have played their last games, Todd Pearce and Tito head home and we thank them for their contributions. Will we see new faces at the Greenyards , yes we will however some of the younger players will also come through. They are already on summer programmes in preparation for next season. Playing in the Premiership is a commitment for these boys, no longer is it a case of rocking up on a Tuesday and Thursday for some its every day.
We will round off the season with the Sevens, where the players get the energy from I have no idea but they enjoy it and as always will do their best for the Club. We suffered a couple of injuries on Saturday and another couple at Peebles on Sunday so options are limited this year. But that just gives others a chance. Robbie Chalmers played at Peebles Sevens and did well, I think we will see a fair bit of him in future years
So that’s it for another season--the sunshine beckons
