Best of luck to all the teams this weekend
U14 AND U16 GIRLS AWAY AT HAMILTON
STOP PRESS: Great rugby from both teams The U16s girls were joined with East Kilbride girls at 7s against Cambuslang, Hamilton and Whitecraigs players. Annan came out on top to win all their matches and come home with the trophy. Well played to all.
On Friday the U14-U16 Hornets are off to Hamilton Rugby for a Girls rugby festival.
Its been a few weeks since the girls were in rugby action but the girls will, as always, be ready thanks to Billy and the coaches.
All starts at 6.30pm.
1ST XV ON THE ROAD TO CARRICK
STOP PRESS: The 1st XV go down 34-8. A poor performance from the lads. The Annan points coming from a Josh Whiteside penalty and an Aaron Carmichael try.
The 1st XV play their last away league match of the season on Saturday when they travel to Carrick.
After winning their last 2 matches Annan will be hoping for a hatrick on Saturday and set up their last match of the league season (at home to Kilmarnock on the 14th May) with a chance of a top half finish.
Carrick have been having a tough old season as they like a lot of teams rebuild for the future after a decade of success. This season they have won 4 of their 8 matches played at Maybole though and at home the Ayrshire team are usually a tough team to beat.
Over the years for Annan this has been the case and Annan have not beaten Carrick at their ground since 2012. This win is the the only time Annan have beaten Carrick at Maybole in 6 matchups.
Both teams will be wanting to end this disjointed covid hit league season on a high and it should be an entertaining match – on average 60 points are usually scored between the teams.
For the record, if James Kirby plays on Saturday it will be his 100th appearance for the 1st XV in a competitive match. Congratulations James.
