BORDERS RUGBY TV AND RADIO will provide comprehensive radio coverage of the Melrose Sevens Pre-Qualification Tournament and the Melrose Wasps Under 18 competition on Friday afternoon, plus a mammoth live radio broadcast on Saturday of almost 10 hours non-stop action featuring every single tie from the first game of the main tournament at 11am to the final which will end just before 8pm.
The radio coverage can be heard all over the world at www.BordersRugby.net as well as on community stations TD1 Radio (Galashiels) and TD9 Radio (Hawick).
Borders Rugby TV have kicked off its coverage with a documentary looking back at last year’s tournament at the Greenyards when it returned after a two-year Covid-19 enforced hiatus with a brand new 3G surface and floodlights.
The programme, ‘Behind The Melrose Sevens’, was produced and presented by Stuart Cameron and features star guests including World Sevens legend Cecil Afrika, Chris Paterson and Bryan Redpath, as well as some vintage footage from previous Melrose Sevens events. It is available at the Borders Rugby TV & Radio website and on YouTube.
The Friday radio show will be on air at 2.30pm through to 8pm with TV highlights of both the Pre-qualification and Under 18 tournaments available from Monday.
