With the new league season kicking off on September 6 it’s time again for Lasswade RFC’s well established pre-season 15-a-side tournament at Hawthornden today (Saturday), first kick-offs at 1.30pm. Admission is £2 for adults and all children free of charge. Spectators will have the use of the club’s bar and the barbecue will also be serving up hot food.
The line-up promises an afternoon of competitive rugby with each tie 10 minutes each way. Portobello, Glenrothes, Ardrossan, Livingstone and Royal High Cougars join hosts Lasswade as rugby returns to Midlothian.
