1ST XV ON SHIELD DUTY
STOP PRESS: The last go down 43-18. 20-18 at half time it was anyone’s game but the 1st XV’s bad run on plastic pitches continues as Cumnock ran away with it in the 2nd half. Points: Capt Kieran (T), Josh (2P, 1C), Wibz (T).

The 1st XV are away to Cumnock in the 2nd round of the National Shield competition on Saturday,
The teams met earlier in the season in the league at Cumnock where the home team came out on top but Coach Juan will be wanting to take the lessons from that match and get a better result this time.
Cumock play on a artifical pitch – something the 1st XV have always struggled on – but hopefully the lads can break their losing streak on such pitches on Saturday but it will require a big effort from the team.

2ND XV HOST GREENOCK
STOP PRESS: The visitors win 5-29. Try scorer Simon Dix. Great match and always good to see Annan putting out a 2nd team, One of the few in the region that still can do so on a regular basis. Match Report – Now Online

The Warriors take on Broughton Ladies in the National Shield on Sunday at Violetbank which will also be the 100th match (league/cup) for the Warriors since their first match back in 2015
In that time, the Warriors have played 30 different teams and travelled over 10700 miles!
It will be a tough match against the Edinburgh side who just missed out on potential promotion to the Premier league when they finished 2nd in their league.
The Warriors though will be buoyed with their great win away to Dunfermline Ladies in their last match and will be hoping to build on this as they try to make it 2 from 2 in the Shield this season.
