Peebles RFC 1sts Sevens Squad – Last Saturday the Peebles RFC sevens squad travelled the road down to Riverside Park for the Jedforest sevens, the final tournament in this season’s Kings of the Sevens Series. Peebles were drawn with Hamilton in the second tie of the first round – unfortunately losing by 38 – 5.

Peebles Reds – Saturday 25th sees the traditional end of the playing season when the Walkerburn Sevens take place at Caberston Haugh. A Peebles Reds squad will be taking part but details of the draw were not available. First tie kicks off at 1:00pm.

OAPees – Last Friday evening the OAPees travelled up to Hawthornden to play their counterparts from Lasswade RFC. Billed as a warm up before the OAPees head for a weekend of cheese & wine in the South of France, the lads took to a pretty firm pitch for the match. It was keenly fought with some big hits going in from both sides. Lasswade ran out winners in a tight contest by 31 – 24.

Next weekend the OAPees make the trip to Brignoles near Toulon in South West France where a warm welcome is assured in the spirit of the Auld Alliance and where I am sure plenty of claret will be consumed. The match itself takes place on Saturday 1st June.
