Tomorrow Peebles RFC – sponsored by Glenrath Farms – have a home Borders derby match when they face Kelso in the RBS National League. With both teams losing last week and being locked together in mid-table there is much to play for and we can expect this to be a feisty contest in true Border Derby tradition. The match which kicks off at 3:00pm is sponsored by Colin Thomson and Friends.
The second XV – sponsored by FIRST XV and rugbystuff.com – are away from home when they travel to play Haddington in RBS Reserve League East 1 – kick off is at 3:00pm for travelling seconds fans.
The Colts – supported by BARC Coach Hire and Evolution Asset Management – have a home match in the Border Semi-Junior League against Hawick Wanderers. Kick Off is at 3:00pm at the Kerfield Farm pitch.
On Sunday the Under 16 squad is in action in the Border Under 16 league when they travel down to Selkirk. Kick off is at 1:00pm.
Last Saturday Peebles RFC 1st XV travelled up to Mayfield to play Dundee HSFP in the RBS National League – unfortunately they were on the wrong end of a convincing 40 – 7 scoreline and returned empty handed.
The second XV had a home fixture against Edinburgh Accies Blues in the RBS Reserve League East 1 at the Gytes. They squeezed home 5 – 0 in a game which had uncontested scrums from the outset due to the visitors lack of front row.
The Colts travelled shorthanded to Berwick due to holiday and injury call-offs and lost 29 – 12 in their Border Semi-Junior League match.
Are your Piranhas having October holiday cabin fever? Why not bring them down to the Gytes on Sunday as training continues for all age groups at P1-P7 beginning at 10am.


All at Peebles RFC were shocked and saddened to hear of the sudden and unexpected death of life-long supporter Helen Cleghorn who passed away suddenly this week. Our sympathies go to all of her family at this sad time. Always fervent in her support of the team Helen will be sadly missed by all at the Gytes.
