The Dumfries Saints RFC hosted The Cussie Cup 7’s on Saturday, 9th April


Teams from Whitecraigs, Marr, Biggar, Dumfries Saints, Ardrossan Accies, West Of Scotland, Perthshire and the Currie Chieftains participated in the event.

The Whitecraigs U18’s arrived in Dumfries in good spirits ready for a day of exciting rugby. There was a redraw of the groups before kick off as 4 teams had withdrawn from the event. They faced tough opponents in the first game against Currie Chieftains getting off to a great start winning 24-0 with some impressive play.

Next up was the hosts Dumfries Saints producing a tight match until our boys pulled ahead with a couple of late tries to wrap it up 32-24. The final group match was against Perthshire , who had also won their first 2 matches , with Perthshire winning 47-7 putting them through to the Final which they won beating West of Scotland 31-24.

We did however have a Whitecraigs player in the final, Struan Beaton who was the referee. Our U18’s went into a 3rd place Final with opponents Biggar again a high quality rugby display, with Biggar narrowly winning 29-26. Our boys finished in 4th place among a bunch of good teams.

A fun day out with some great rugby! Well Done.
