The club have the Rugbython will take place on Saturday August 23 with a whole day of touch rugby taking place.

Every age group will be involved from the P2 Micros to the over 35 Mammoths (middle age men mainly over the hill).

There will be BBQ’s, tuck shops and other stalls on the day and the 1st XV will play their first competitive game of the season in a cup game against Dundee side Morgan.

With the high costs involved in running the club which includes travel, training equipment and training, facility lets and insurance, it’s hoped everyone will help to raise as much money as possible.
