Glasgow Hawks v Currie Chieftains, 9 October 2021

Glasgow Hawks v Currie Chieftains, 9 October 2021 Another dreich autumn afternoon on a soft, very green Balgray pitch that glistened with water   droplets, did not hold many prospects for open rugby. Frequently the ball squirted from players’ grasp which made for exciting, if unstructured play, which rarely got beyond the 22-metre line of either team. Whenever there was a threat, the ball was punted well away from the [...]

Currie Chieftains v Edinburgh Accies, 2 October 2021 Following a high-scoring win over Hawick the previous week, the Edinburgh Accies predicted to give the Chieftains a difficult match. On a wet blustery day, there was little between the two sides for the first 30 minutes. The play took place mainly in midfield, but the difficult conditions produced plenty of handling errors and excitement, as the frequently dropped ball was hacked [...]

Currie Chieftains v GHA RFC, 18 September 2021 This seven-try Chieftains’ romp did no justice to the performance of a young, lively and tenacious GHA team who made too many unforced errors. Unfortunately, an afternoon of inaccurate passes and knock-ons were the precursors to the visitors’ downfall and allowed the clinical Chieftains to clear their lines and pile on the pressure. After a promising opening spell, the visitors’ mishaps started [...]

A View from the Touchline – Premier League: 29.2.20. Currie Chieftains 36 pts (t 5, c 4, p g 1) v Jed-Forest 26 pts (t 4, c 3) On Leap Year’s Day the sun shone brightly, and some jokingly talked of the balmy weather and lush green pitch, but during the previous 24 hours, Mother Nature had thrown a mixture of rain, sleet and snow at Malleny Park as she [...]

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 [...]
