Festive 7s Saturday 29th December

By Craig Little, 26th Dec 2012

The Annual Festive 7's will take place on Saturday 29th December. The tournament which sees a lot more focus on the fun, rather then the rugby itself, is always a great day out.

With the weather looking favourable, it is likely that the tournament will be a full contact affair, rather than the touch format we have seen, due to pitch conditions, over the last few years.

Teams will be drawn at 12.30 and all players wanting to play should register from 12 noon onwards. The first matches will kick off at 1pm.

The tournament will be a round robin format, with games last 7 1/2 minutes per half. If anyone is able to assist with the refereeing then please let Snitch know.

After the 7s and the traditional Shield/Port Presentation, we will be showing the Edinburgh v Glasgow game on the big screen. Edinburgh will be hoping to turn around the 23-14 defeat from Scotstoun last week. The Match kicks off at 4.05pm.

The theme for after the matches is Christmas Jumpers and there will be a prize for the best and worst jumpers. There will also be a fining session and some festive drinking games!

See you all on Saturday!

Burns Night Reminder: Finaly a wee reminder that we are holding a Burns Supper at Bogbain on Saturday 19th Jan. To buy your tickets please visit the Bogbain Website to purchase them directly.
