BT National League – Tomorrow Peebles RFC– sponsored by Stobo Health Spa – are back at home when Howe of Fife are the visitors to the Gytes for a BT National League 2 match – kick off at 3:00pm- weather permitting. Coaches Drew and Lewis will be hoping that the squad can reverse the result from earlier in the season when they lost narrowly at Duffus Park. This match is sponsored by Glenrath Farms.

Last Saturday Peebles were due to travel west to Hamilton for a BT National League 2 match but the match was called off due to an unplayable pitch just as the squad were getting on the coach.

Seconds – The seconds are back at home tomorrow when Dunfermline are the visitors to Hay Lodge Park for a BT Reserve League East 2 fixture. Weather permitting kick off is at 2:00pm.

Last Week the seconds travelled into Edinburgh to play Corstorphine Cougars returning with a resounding win by 111 – 0.

– Tomorrow the Colts and under 16’s have home fixtures against Dunbar. The Colts will play at Hay Lodge and the U16’s will play at the High School, both kicking off at 10.30am – weather premitting.

Last Saturday the Colts had a fixture with Biggar Colts – unfortunately the visitors proved to be too strong for the Colts and won by 48 – 14.

The cup fixture at Aberdeen had to unfortunately be conceded due to the proximity to the prelim exams preventing S4 players being available.
