There is no escaping the rugby vibe over the weekend as the club will be represented by 12 sides this Saturday and Sunday in fixtures that represent all age categories.
Saturdayhas a senior double header at home as the 1st and 2nd XV's take on Haddington and Alloa 2nds in their respective league fixtures kicking off at 3pm. Earlier in the afternoon the colts will travel to Kirkcaldy in the hope of continuing their unbeaten record in the league this year.
Super Sunday has the youngest section of the club ,The Eaglets, honing their rugby skills on the North Inch from 10am ,while the P4-P7 squad will travel to Stirling to take part in a Borders/Central/Highland club tournament that runs through the day.
Back at the North Inch the S1 take on Glasgow Hawks at 12pm, the S2 face Aberdeen Grammar at 12.45pm and the u15 and u16 team play Dunfermline and Dalziel at 1.30pm.
Midi coordinator Eamon O'Brien has faced a few logistical problems on Sunday but is confident that all is in place."it has been a challenge in trying to allocate changing rooms ,pitches and organise food for nearly 200 but everything appears to be in order and we are really looking forward to a fantastic weekend of rugby."
Best wishes to all participants and a warm welcome to all those coming along to support the action.
