Match report and photos – Now Online

In the most open West 1 league for many a year, only 2 teams after 2 games remain unbeaten – Annan and Ardrossan.

Ardrossan beat Kilmarnock last week who Annan beat the week before. Ardrossan win was larger so based on that small stat, Ardrossan perhaps go into this match as slight favourites, but with Annan at home and Player/Coach Juan instilling a belief into this Annan team it should be a cracker of a match.

The last meeting in 2022 at Violetbank was a win for the home side, but the last meeting in 2023 was a win for Ardrossan.

Overall Ardrossan have the edge 5 wins to 1 win. 1 match was a draw. 4 of those wins and the draw where all 17-20 years ago so unless Kieron Watret plays, there will be no players from that era playing on Saturday!

Should be a great match, and although it is only 3 matches in, the winner on Saturday will be in the early season driving seat for the title.

3pm KO up at Violetbank

Starting XV: 1 Ryan Glass, 2 Callum Bell, 3 Juan Phyfer, 4 Michael Thompson, 5 Callum Taylor, 6 Alex Halliday, 7 Callum Smith, 8 Sean Haren, 9 Fraser McMillan, 10 Josh Whiteside, 11 Alex Jones, 12 Adam Torbett, 13 Jonny Callaghan, 14 James Kirby, 15 Andrew Jancey

Subs: 16 Eben LeVin, 17 Murray Forbes, 18 Aitken Render, 19 Ewan Campbell


STOP PRESS: The 2nd XV lost 37-12. Match Report and photos – Now Online

If there is one phrase that has been overused in the last 5 seasons, it’s the “2nd XV on the road”.

Through no fault of their own, the 2nd XV seem to travel more for their matches than they get at home.

This match is the start a run of 6 away games in the next 8 fixtures. The 2nd XV will of course get 5 home fixtures in the last 7 weeks of the season and fingers crossed that the central belt teams will be willing to travel to Violetbank. A distance that seems to stop many a team from traveling!

Anyway, onto Saturdays match. Opponents Strathendrick and Annan met back in 2020 at Strathendrick, when the hosts ran out 22-10 winners.

Annan lost their opening match to Kilmarnock 2 weeks ago but with players returning from injury and unavailability the 2nd string has not been this strong for many a season and Saturdays match should be a great advert for 2nd XV rugby.

3pm KO

Starting XV: 1 Craig Stephanie, 2 John McKay, 3 Ben Sweeney, 4 Duncan Kerr, 5 Kyle Rennie, 6 Josh Cairns, 7 James Morrison,
 8 Ryan Armstrong (C) 9 Bradley James, 10 Scott Muir, 11 Luke Clark, 12 Declan Ferguson (VC), 13 John Glendining, 14 Jack Ogilvie, 15 Kieran Johnston.

Subs: 16 Kyle Bell, 17 Tam Thorburn 


STOP PRESS: The Warriors draw 15-15 in a game, 2 late Greenock tries denied the Warriors their 1st win of the season. Tries from Niamh, Mally and Nicole B.

Match Report, photos, tries and the full match – Now Online

The Warriors are at home on Sunday as they face old rivals Greenock Wanderers Ladies at Violetbank.

The Warriors are still to record their first win of the season but despite the defeats Coach Warrick is seeing improvements each week and that elusive win is not that far away.

Greenock and the Warriors have met 7 times with the Wanderers having the upper hand with 6 wins to 1. The Warriors have never won in their 4 encounters at Violetbank but will be more than aiming to stop that run on Sunday.

Coach Warrick will be hoping the week off last week due to injuries will have allowed the injured players to recover and have a fully raring to go Warriors squad to pick from
