A View from the Touchline – Tennent’s Premier League 2.3.19

A View from the Touchline – Scottish Premier League: 2. 3. 19. Currie Chieftains 19 pts (t 3, c 2) v Edinburgh Accies 5 pts (t 1) As a wet windy blanket slowly enveloped proceedings at Malleny Park, it also marked the end of a 45-year league structure (season-1973/74), that encouraged Scottish club rugby to develop and contest their full potential. Sadly, this era has now passed, and many rugby [...]

A View from the Touchline – National Cup Quarter Final: 16.2.19.

Ayr 34 pts (t 5, c 3, p g 1) v Currie Chieftains 19 pts (t 3, c 2) Training and conditioning are never a substitute for match time, as the SRU have recognised, by trying to formulate a strategy that will give their elite players more competitive matches via the semi-professional Super6 regime: it will not work. This match at Millbrae went some way to demonstrate the problem that [...]

Melrose 10 pts (t I, c 1, p g 1) v Currie Chieftains 31 pts (t 4, c 4, p g 1) The grey misty day did not inspire much optimism for loyal travelling Currie supporters, who have experienced disappointment on recent visits to the Greenyards. Adding to the gloom, steady rain started to fall as the match got under way, but any despondency was soon brightened by Currie’s lively [...]

Watsonians Rugby 23 pts (t 2, c 2, p g 3) v Currie Chieftains 29 pts (t 4, c 2, p g 1) This match of commitment and lung-busting rugby certainly warmed the sizeable crowd and gave both sets of supporters plenty to cheer about on a raw January afternoon. As one spectator commented, ‘I doubt if you’ll get the same level of passion with the no-relegation six team League, [...]

A View from the Touchline – Premier League: 8.12.18.

Currie Chieftains 47 pts (t 7, c 6) v Stirling County 17 pts (t 3, c 1) As a full clubhouse tucked into the annual Christmas pre-match lunch, the outside conditions were getting more windy and darker by the minute, with a distinct hint of the rain that had been forecast to arrive just as this vital league match got underway. The ground was already very soft from the deluges [...]

A View from the Touchline – Premier League: 1.12.18.

Hawick RFC 9 pts (p g 3) v Currie Chieftains 3 pts (p g 1) The Border country is a beautiful place, but not for the weak-hearted on a cold, raw, murky winter afternoon, especially at Hawick RFC. Even before the kick-off, as a damp gloomy mist enveloped Mansfield Park, the omens were not good; with a greasy surface, and the light fading fast, conditions looked ideal for a typically [...]
