Rats v Orion

Darn, just missed 11pm!

Tonight saw a high scoring encounter shading our way, with an 80 point winning margin against Orion. Rats 16680 Orion 16600.

Clearly this gives us a handy 2-1 win to start the term, and by 0.24% we scrape a solitary AMP!

New season fixtures

The annual stramash over, we have our fixture list. Again we have front loaded the calendar so have five Edinburgh matches and trips to West Calder and Haddington before Christmas, followed later by one more Edinburgh match and trips to North Berwick and Gullane.

Match space being at a premium in the New Melville, most of our home matches will be at the Carlton this year.
