One Club Awards

Last Saturday night Peebles RFC held their 1st OneClub Awards. A fantastic night was enjoyed by all who attended.

Congratulations to all those who won and well done to all who had a part in organising the event.

Senior Rugby

Peebles RFC 1sts – Last Saturday Peebles RFC – sponsored by Stobo Health Spa – played their final Tennent’s National league 2 match of the season when Falkirk were the visitors to the Gytes – the Pees finished the fifteens season with a flourish by putting the visitors to the sword by 55 – 12, although at half time such a score was looking unlikely as errors cost the home side a number of scoring chances – however after the half time pep talk the boys came good , passes stuck and chances were put away.

Sevens - Last Saturday Peebles were also due to send a Sevens squad down to Hawick but had to withdraw due to a lack of players with the League game taking place.

Tomorrow a Sevens squad travel the road down to Milntown for the Langholm sevens. Peebles are drawn with Melrose in the third tie of the first round. First tie kicks off at 1:00pm.
