A View from the Touchline – Premier League: 15.2.20. Aberdeen Grammar 17 pts (t 2, c 2, p g 1) v Currie Chieftains 26 pts (t 4, c 3) The journey north was wet and windy, but Storm Dennis only sank its teeth into Aberdeenshire an hour before the Rubislaw kick-off. As the teams lined up to remember the passing of Katie MacDonald, a stalwart of the local club, the [...]

A View from the Touchline 25.1.20

A View from the Touchline – National Cup, Quarter Final: 25.1.20. Currie Chieftains 19 pts (3 t, 2 C) v Hawick RFC 12 pts (t 2, c 1) Although it was overcast and grey, this must have been the first Saturday since early December that sports fixtures were not under threat from the weather. The dry and reasonably firm Malleny pitch looked ideal for a competitive open contest that the [...]

A View from the Touchline – Premier League: 18.1.20. Currie Chieftains 47 pts (t 7, c 6) v Glasgow Hawks 7 pts (t 1, c 1) It soon became clear that the Chieftains had cast the disappointments of a miserable December into the dustbin of yesterday, as they dished up a fine display of rugby against an athletic Hawks team that looked good in patches, but could not match the [...]

A View from the Touchline – Premier League: 21.12.19. Selkirk RFC 13 pts (t 2, p g 1) v Currie Chieftains 11 pts (t 1, p g 2) The weather and ground conditions can be a great leveller, and the cold, wet, slippery morass of the playing surface over the past four weeks has not favoured the Chieftains’ aspirations. Of course, it is the same for both teams, and although [...]

A View from the Touchline – Premier League: 14.12.19.

A View from the Touchline – Premier League: 14.12.19. Currie Chieftains 3 pts (1p g) v Marr RFC 14 pts (t 2, c 2) So often expectations can leave you on a downer and somewhat disheartened, and this was most definitely the case for Chieftains supporters, who braved the elements to watch their team succumb to the tenacious, well-organised League leaders, whose defence was heroic, and who took advantage of [...]

A View from the Touchline – Premier League: 7.12.19.

A View from the Touchline – Premier League: 7.12.19. Hawick RFC 20 pts (t 2, c 2, p g 2) v Currie Chieftains 14 pts (t 2, c 2) The low grey clouds and drizzly rain were not the weather for a trip to Mansfield Park, especially as the ‘Greens’ were experiencing a recent revival after their poor start to the season. Sure enough, the only patch of brightness during [...]
