  1. Tbf, when I saw Ayr in round 1 I thought Thornton and in particular Nairn were poor. Some of the guys stepping down from higher levels are excellent, but others look pretty mediocre. Mitchell looked absolutely superb for Hawick in the Premiership when he broke through as a 17 year old. If he keeps playing well he could still make it pro, but he turned down Super 6 contracts in the past to stay with Hawick so not sure rugby is a priority for him. Kaleem Barreto, who played a couple of games fo Glasgow a few years back, has been a real standout and I'd expect him to be back involved with one of the pro teams. Someone who I wasn't aware of until recently is Duncan Munn, an 18 year old centre signed up as an injury replacement by Bouroughmuir and he's played quite a few games now and looks really good.
  2. I love the constant momentum swings in this sport where each team takes it in turn to look like they'll score from every centre bounce. Halfway through the third term the Dogs looked like they'd pretty much done enough. Great to see Melbourne end such a long drought, definitely the best team this year. Next season looks pretty wide open at this point.
  3. I saw a bit towards the end but it was pretty much over by then. I went to Boroughmuir-Melrose about 10 days ago, the first time I had seen the latter this season, and they were indeed pretty exciting, showing better offloading skills than any other team I've seen this season. I'm glad to hear Watsonians played some good rugby, they've been effective if uninspiring when I've seen them. The Knights look well set to win it at the moment but anything could happen in a one-off final. Although far from without its flaws, it is pretty clear that Super 6 is a higher standard than the Premiership was a few years back.
  4. It won't be big given recent form I'd predict. Horrible draw for us, I'd probably make Clydebank favourites.
  5. Without Hester I'm not sure who our attacking focal point is. Another tough game in what is proving to be a very unpredictable season so far. I'll say 2-2.
  6. This is exactly what I came on to post. I've never seen any fanbase care more about being disliked.
  7. An utterly pathetic club supported by even more pathetic individuals.
  8. I can't think of any Scottish players nailing down a starting place, as Hickey looks to have done, in one of the top leagues as a 19 year old in recent years. Am I missing some obvious names?
  9. Incredible, thought we were getting extra time. Two good prelims coming up.
  10. Looks a cracking signing if he can stay fit. Bit bizarre that Nicholson has gone back already.
  11. Conceding after 10 seconds is inexcusable and from there it was always going to be tricky. After a dreadful first 15 or so, I actually thought we did all right for the rest of the half and missed some decent chances but at 2 down that's nowhere near enough. Embra were happy to let us have it deep but kept it as far from their goal as possible. Second half we huffed and puffed but didn't create much, both teams could've scored a couple on another day but it was pretty uneventful. Edinburgh weren't as bad as advertised and really seem to have our number. Innes Murray should be a good signing. We certainly missed Soapy and even MacEwan. Really surprised Gav started with that midfield two, they struggled to find a team mate time and time again.
  12. Plenty graft in central midfield but not much quality. Peters needs to step up.
  13. Think I'll head along to this one, Friday night games are a bit of a novelty so might as well make the most of it. The forecast looks cracking too. The last time I was at Ainslie Park was the 1-1 draw in November 2019. Hester gave Edinburgh real problems that day from memory so hopefully more of the same tomorrow.
