Friday night lights for Lasswade at Murrayfield

By Oswald Wright, 6th Jan 2013

Approx 50 young members of Lasswade were in attendance to Support Edinburgh rugby for the visit of Leinster in the Rabo pro12 on Friday night.

The under 16s had a great result in a hard fought encounter with Livingston on the back pitches as a pre match curtain raiser which ended 47 - 15 to Lasswade.

After that the the Edinburgh and Leinster squads were greeted by the sight of 20 of our mini section's finest waving flags and cheering as they took to the field.

Finally at half time the P7's took to the hallowed turf of the national pitch to entertain the crowd in a demonstration match also against Livingston. The P7's played some great stuff and dominated for the whole match and were worthy winners at 1 try to nil despite going over several more times and the scores being disallowed.

All the kids involved had a great night despite the dissapointing scoreline in the Edinburgh game and will surely have been inspired by their trip to the national stadium.

Thanks go to all the parents who helped out with transport etc on the night and also to the guys behind the scenes at Edinburgh Rugby who made the event happen.

    Great to see Lasswade maintain their 100% record on the big pitch. That's two P7s teams who have won at Murrayfield along wth our two recent 1st team wins!
