What a fantastic way to start the build up to the 2018/19 season. With a sell out lunch and a healthy crowd basking in the summer sunshine, Heriot’s and Hong Kong Scottish provided an excellent open game of rugby that highlighted that on a hard and fast pitch handling is key and with forwards and backs interlinking well there wasn’t much time to take breath with the neither touch judge having much to do.
While Heriot’s ran out comfortable winners HKS started and ended the game with a flourish, showing that with a full strength team they will be a handful for any team – we wish them well in their round robin tournament with Watsonians and London Scottish at Myreside on Saturday.
Huge vote of thanks to Badenoch for sponsoring the day, the Hawick Distillery for laying on gin cocktails and to Raptor Sports Cars – Scotland’s only car manufacturer – who were able to showcase one of their amazing vehicles.
On Saturday 11 August we are taking part in a round robin tournament at Meggetland which will be contested between teams from Boroughmuir, Currie and Heriot’s with the following format:
