Rugby: Musselburgh warm up for Murrayfield with sevens success

Musselburgh won the Preston Lodge Sevens on Saturday to warm up for their National Shield final against Dunfermline at Murrayfield this coming weekend. The East Lothian men defeated Watsonians in the final at the Pennypit on a chilly, but sunny day in the county.

Perthshire took home the spoils in the Plate event on what was a great day for the host club who themselves, as RBS East One champions, have had a brilliant campaign.

Musselburgh’s win at the sevens was coupled with the news that they had been pipped to the RBS National One title though.

Hawick YM have now won leagues two years on the spin after their highly entertaining 33-26 victory over RHC Cougars in the Capital saw them crowned champions.

Hawick YM finished on 98 points having lost just one match out of 22 with Musselburgh ending up on 94 points.
