Duns First XV and Second XV matches tomorrow have both been postponed, but for different reasons.
The Firsts were due to travel to Portobello in East Regional League Division 1, but heavy rain in Edinburgh over the last 48 hours or so has left the pitches at Cavalry Park unplayable. The match will now be rescheduled to a new date later in the season.
The Seconds were to have entertained Bo'ness Firsts in the RBS Reserve Leagues, but Bo'ness called of on friday lunchtime. They are unable to raise a side to travel to Duns.
The Duns boys won't be idle, however, as they have arranged to play a match amongst themselves. This will be at the Hardens, kicking off at 3 pm, and initially will pit the Firsts against the Seconds. The plan is to play 4 sessions of 20 minutes each, gradually mixing the sides up as the afternoon progresses.
Anyone wanting to see some 'real' rugby should go to the new Berwickshire High School pitches, where Duns Colts entertain Berwick Colts in the Scottish Borders Semi-Junior League. Kick off is at 3 pm. Please get along to give your support to the Colts as they endeavour to turn over their closest, and fiercest, rivals.
