Premiership Play-off Final

Currie Chieftains v Marr RFC, 2 April 2022 Premiership Play-Off Final The attraction of a sporting contest is its excitement and unpredictability, be this in tiddly-winks, fishing or team game. And in future years at pub quiz nights, the sporting question could well be: ‘Which Premiership team lost only their opening and closing matches in an otherwise glittering season of eighteen consecutive victories?’ Well, anyone living in the upper reaches [...]

Premiership Play-Off Semi-Final

Currie Chieftains v Edinburgh Accies, 26 March 2022 Premiership Play-Off Semi-Final The sun shone, the Malleny pitch was a green carpet, and the Balerno High School pipe band entertained a large crowd for this end of season play-off bonanza. In the cup-tie atmosphere, some older members of the Club may have noticed one missing face; long-standing supporter, Alex Russell who passed away on the 10 March and would have relished [...]

Musselburgh RFC v Currie Chieftains

Musselburgh RFC v Currie Chieftains, 19 February 2022 Following the wind, sleet and rain of recent days, the Stoneyhill pitch was only passed as playable at noon for the Chieftains’ penultimate league match of the season.

On that day, the [...]

Currie Chieftains v Jed-Forest, 29 January 2022

Currie Chieftains v Jed-Forest, 29 January 2022 Storm Malik had rattled its way through Balerno earlier in the day, and there was still a strong blustery wind which caused plenty of problems for handling and kicking. The elements both frustrated and added excitement for the teams and the hardy supporters who ventured to Malleny Park. The visitors’ season has been hampered by player availability and a recent change to their [...]

Aberdeen Grammar Rugby v Currie Chieftains, 22 January 2022

Aberdeen Grammar Rugby v Currie Chieftains, 22 January 2022 The pleasant mid-day sunshine had only partially thawed the overnight frost on the main Rubislaw pitch, so play was switched to an adjacent area with a better covering of grass. Aberdeen’s season has been badly disrupted by injury and the Covid virus, but to their credit they had made every effort to fulfil the Currie fixture. Their team contained a number [...]

Currie Chieftains v Glasgow Hawks, 15 January 2022

Currie v Glasgow Hawks, 15 January 2022 After Hawks’ convincing victory over Hawick a week ago, this game was billed by the press as ‘Match of the Day’ and a possible cracker. On this mild January afternoon the large Malleny Park crowd was not disappointed, although the one-sided final score might suggest that Currie had things their own way, that would be considerably wide of the mark. If the visitors’ [...]
