Sevens Time

01 Apr 2019

Congratulations to Ayr and Heriots for reaching the Cup Final and Premiership Final, the Double remains on the cards for both Clubs. Its disapointing to lose out , especially when on both occasions penalty tries were the difference between us. The fIrst half was going to plan for 38 minutes until we received the yellow card and didn’t defend the last play. In the second half Ayr were the more streetwise but we had our chances and as said a penalty try seperated the two teams. I had always thought a penalty try had to be the denial of a certain try so im not sure how that works when the ball was lost and came out the Melrose side  for one of our players to touch it down. Control of the ball used to be part of the scenario but hey im no ref.  Such decisions are  big calls and consistancy would be good, but at the end of the day we also made mistakes which should be the ones we look at. Big games are won by creating moments and we were a bit short in doing that over the two games

Its been a tough season with injuries and with the Sevens ahead we can take a breather before finishing off the season with the Border League Final at the Greenyards on Tuesday 16th APRIL at 6.30 against Hawick

 

Finally preperations for Super 6 continue to move along, hopefully some of the politics will give way to rugby but like Brexit in not so sure it will be as easy as that. One thing that wont change is our desire to play  good open rugby on the Greenyards as we look to do what rugby was invented for , entertaining you  and enjoying what we do
