Glasgow Hawks have been scoring tries with gay abandon this season so the emphasis going in to the fixture on Saturday was always about defence and stopping their key line breakers.
The fact that we held Hawks to a solitary try was testament to the work that had gone in at training and it was indiscipline that ultimately cost us as we had opportunities towards the end to see the game out. Frustrated was how it was summed up in the aftermath, however, it now makes the Currie game in January a must win fixture if we are to have a chance of competing in the play offs.
The McLaren Shield is also on the line and having won our last 3 games at Goldenacre this is also the opportunity for Heriot’s to become only the second club to have its name inscribed on the shield. So plenty to play for on Jan 14th and your support will be even more important than ever.
Heriot’s v Co-optimists Rugby Club
The festive period would not be complete without a bit of Champagne rugby and Heriot’s are delighted to be hosting Scotland’s invitation-only rugby team, Co-optimists Rugby Club, at Goldenacre on Monday 2 January 2017.
This will be a fantastic opportunity to watch the best talent in the Premiership take on the Premiership Champions on a day when there is no other club rugby. While the Co optimists team is yet to be finalised we are hopeful that a few Glasgow and Edinburgh players will be released to bolster the squad and help make it a fantastic game.
Kick off: 14:00
Adults – £5
Under 18 – free
There will be hot food for sale from 13:00
