Selkirk RFC v Currie Chieftains, 20 November 2021 It was an early start for the Chieftains team and their supporters for the fifty-odd mile journey to Philiphaugh. Although the autumn-coloured Border hills glistened in morning light, there were ominous signs of rain in the misty clouds gathering before the 11.00 am kick off. Because of [...]

Currie Chieftains v Musselburgh RFC, 30 October, 2021 Despite the torrential rain of the previous two days, the green, firm Malleny pitch, with a backdrop of autumn colours, looked a picture. As the clouds retreated and the sun peeped through, the Chieftains’ performance matched the conditions, and they produced a masterclass of open rugby which [...]

Jed-Forest v Currie Chieftains, 23 October 2021 Borders matches are often tribal, passionate affairs and teams from outwith the region can always expect a tough time when visiting their Border cousins. In this regard the Chieftains’ game against Jed-Forest at Riverside Park on the 23 October was no exception, especially after Jed took an early [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
