Games and Training this weekend - 17th November 2018

Before we start with this weekend's activities, a quick note of congratulations to Steven Ketchen who played for the Edinburgh U19s team in this week's inter-district competitions. That's a well-deserved recognition of the effort that Steven's been putting in again this year and we hope it's the start of big things both for Steven and for us as a club.

This week we have U14, U16, Colts and Senior fixtures as well as another slew of Autumn Internationals for your delight and delectation.

The action begins on Saturday morning when the U14s take on Boroughmuir High School at Meggatland (kick off 10:00 am). The U16s face the same opposition at home (kick off also 10:00 am).

Meanwhile, the combined Currie/Penicuik U18 team head west to play GHA in a crucial top-of-the-table clash with kick off in that game being at 12:00 pm.

And then, the First XV (sponsored by McKenzie Skip Hire Ltd) are in league action as they host Trinity Academicals with a 1:00 pm kick off.

Finally, we can all settle down to watch International matches on the television with Italy vs Australia (2:00 pm) and Wales vs Tonga (2:30 pm) first up, followed by Scotland vs South Africa (5:20 pm) and then Ireland vs New Zealand (7:00 pm) and France vs Argentina (8:05 pm). The bar should be open throughout the afternoon to cover all these. Premier Sports coverage for November is thanks to a generous donation from Ellen Temple.

On Sunday morning, there is training for Hunters (P1-P7) starting at 11:00 am.

We look forward to another splendid weekend of rugby action and to seeing as many of you as possible down to support.

November's Social Event this year takes the form of a Gin Night - a celebration of all things Gin - on Saturday 24th.

There will be a wide-range of speciality gin-based drinks available to choose from. Advance-sale Tickets are now available at £10/£12 each. Advance tickets entitle you to 3 speciality gins on the night, with a plate of cheese, biscuits and home-made chutney included with the higher-priced version. Everything you could want for a sophisticated night out at the club. Prices will be higher on the night so make sure you get your tickets before they all go.

Events in November

Lots of stuff on at your local Rugby Club in November, with the Autumn Internationals and a celebration of all things Gin to the fore.

On Saturday 10th, the club will be open for the Scotland vs Fiji game. Kick off for the game is 2:30 pm and we'll have the usual Try Scorer Sweepstake in operation. There's also the second half of the Wales vs Australia game (kick off 3:20 pm) to look forward to and the Ireland vs Argentina (6:30 pm) and France vs South Africa (7:45 pm) games to watch. Thanks are due to Ellen Temple for the Premier Sports subscription for the month of November which gives us access to some of these games.

On Saturday 17th, there is a league game scheduled but we'll have Italy vs Australia (2:00 pm) and Wales vs Tonga (2:30 pm) available followed by the Scotland vs South Africa game at 5:20 pm. The evening then rounds off with Ireland vs New Zealand (7:00 pm) and France vs Argentina (7:45 pm).

Finally, on Saturday 24th we have Italy vs New Zealand (2:00 pm) to whet your appetite for Scotland vs Argentina (2:30 pm). We'll also have the second half of Wales vs South Africa (3:20 pm) and the Ireland vs USA (6:30 pm) and France vs Fiji (7:45 pm) games as we roll gently into the all-important GIN NIGHT.

More details will be posted as we get closer to Gin O'Clock, so keep an eye on the usual news sources.
