With the first league fixture less than four weeks away, it’s time for Lasswade’s 15-a-side tournament this Saturday.

Well established now as part of the pre-season build-up both for the hosts and the guest teams, the tournament is an opportunity to try out the full 1st XV squads against a number of opposition teams.

Guests this year are regulars Glenrothes from Caledonian Division 1 and RH Cougars who were close challengers for promotion from National 3 along with Lasswade but were shaded into fourth place.

Making up the foursome and first time contenders are Kelso who have played in the second tier of National Rugby for a number of years.

The tournament format this year will be a round robin league with each team playing each other.

First kick-off is at 1.30pm, with a barbecue from around 2.30pm. Admission is free.
