Good Morning from unseasonally warm December day at West Lodge,
Well the 1st XV served up a real Festive treat last Saturday with an outstanding 47 to 27 win against West of Scotland. Both sides seemed to have thrown the defence playbook out of the window and cut loose at every opportunity thus providing the spectators with a great afternoon’s rugby. Also the 2nd XV had a emphatic win on the adjoining pitch.
Tomorrow the visitors to West Lodge are Hillhead/Jordanhill and hopefully another free scoring afternoon is on the cards. H/J are languishing at the foot of the table without a win but have shown some form in the last couple of weeks so we should not be complacent in trying to secure the bonus point win. The ko is 2pm so once again set aside the Christmas shopping and get to West Lodge for another cracking afternoon of rugby.
The 2nd XV travel to East Kilbride to take on the league leaders. There is plenty of spirit in the squad and even Percy has been to training in the last couple of weeks!
The Junior Conference continues with our opponents being Biggar. The Micros are at the usual time on Sunday with the Xmas Party on the 18th December when volunteers are required to assist – see a Coach on Sunday.
