Lasswade (red & black) in action

Our local rugby clubs are back in action this weekend following the festive break. 
Lasswade RFC kick-off the New Year with a derby trip to East Lothian to face Preston Lodge in National League Division 2.(Kick-off 2pm).

The visitors will be hoping to get back to winning ways as they attempt to move up from the wrong end of table, currently sitting second bottom. Preston are sure to prove tough opponents however, sitting fifth in the 12 team league.
Meanwhile in East Region Division One, Dalkeith return from nearly a month out of league action, as they welcome Forrester to King’s Park on Saturday, kick-off 2pm. In a similar position to Lasswade, Dalkeith sit second bottom and badly need a win to move up the table with eight games to play.
And in East Region Division Two, Penicuik will be hoping to extend their 17 point lead at the top of the table when they visit sixth placed Inverleith on Saturday, kick-off 2pm.
