GHA v Currie Chieftains 7/9/19

A View from the Touchline – Scottish Premier League, September 7th, 2019 GHA, (Glasgow, Hutchesons’, Aloysians) 14 pts (t 2, c 2) v Currie Chieftains 38 pts (t 6, c 4) The Chieftains were last at Braidholm for a Scottish Cup match in late November 2018. The big feisty south Glasgow team proved tough opposition on that occasion, and the visitors were expecting a similar reception for this early season [...]

A View from the Touchline - Scottish Cup, Preliminary Round – 31.8.19 Currie Chieftains 29 pts (t 4, c 3, pg 1) v Biggar RFC 24 pts (t 4, c 2) Despite there being a significant number of unfamiliar faces in the Chieftains ranks, it soon became clear that Mark Cairns, Alistair Donaldson, Bruce McNaughton and the other Currie coaches had honed the skills of their new squad to play [...]

Heriot’s Rugby Club 35 pts (t 5, c 2, p g 2) v Currie Chieftains 10 pts (t 2) A cool blustery March west wind sent the clouds scudding over Goldenacre, and with them went the Chieftains’ heroic hopes of gleaning something from a season where all the odds have been stacked against them. In the face of adversity, this tremendous group of coaches and players have navigated through a [...]

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 [...]

A View from the Touchline – Premier League: 26.1.19.

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 [...]
