  1. Why aren’t these fixtures visible in adavance on the SRU website? Most years the cup fixtures are visible but not this year! This story is 3 days in adavance from a hard working media source doing the SRU’s job for them. Last year it was all post Xmads and made the season more meaningful for schools. Now a team can be out by early Nov and……seaon just fritters away.

    • P.S. They’re now up on the website – but they most def weren’t 2 days ago. I generally find the SRU website a bit haphazard.

  2. U18 CUP = Watsons
    U16 CUP = Stew Mel
    U18 Shield = North Berwick
    U16 Shield = HSoG
    U18 Plate = Heriots
    U16 Plate = Loretto
    U18 Bowl = Howe
    U16 Bowl = Morrisons
