Rugby: Gap too wide for battling Lasswade

Lasswade v Boroughmuir
Lasswade v Boroughmuir

Lasswade 14 - Boroughmuir 74

Just a few years ago, Lasswade players and supporters could only dream of playing Premier 1 clubs such as Boroughmuir.

That dream has now been realised, but only in the context of the Edinburgh Regional Cup which spans the top three levels.

This match-up emphasised that the gap between first and third tier is even wider than that between third and fifth or even sixth level.

Lasswade’s last cup engagement is a home tie against fellow Championship Leaguers, Musselburgh, on December 29, but before that, Hawick YM are at Hawthornden on league business this Saturday. Kick-off 2pm.
