CLUB

On field training has come to a close for now before the excitement that is pre-season training starts again. We will use this ‘down time’ to plan fixtures, training and events for next season to ensure we have a full and busy calendar across the board.

Following the success of our summer touch sessions last year, we will once again be running mid-week sessions for the current P7s up to U18s. These sessions provide fitness for the players as well as keeping them in touch with each other and the club. The sessions will start in June. Full details will be emailed and publicised on the usual channels.

SCHOOL RUGBY

Trinity Academy:

Trinity Academy S3s had their turn at the state school sevens last Friday. The quality of rugby they are playing is constantly improving. The boys did not come away with any silverware but enjoyed the experience and are looking forward to next season’s sevens.

Pre-tour training continues for the S4-S6 rugby and hockey pupils, with the majority making the time and effort to be available for the sessions, despite being in the midst of exams. Last week’s Friday session saw a good turn out with the group doing lots of paired races and creating a competitive environment for the pupils so they continue to push each other.

Kaimes School:

Senior pupils from Kaimes School, a City of Edinburgh Council special needs school, have recently had two sessions down at Raeburn Place, training with Trust Rugby International and our BATs MA, Gregor Devine. They received an introduction to all aspects of rugby, including handling, passing, tackling and goal kicking, giving them a great experience of the whole game.
