Limited detail on Keith Russell report raises more questions than answers

The long-awaited reports into the unsavoury Keith Russell affair and the Scottish Rugby Union’s use of non-disclosure agreements to effectively gag former employees were finally handed down like tablets of stone yesterday afternoon but if that was designed to draw a line under the matter, for which we would all be grateful, they failed spectacularly in that respect.

Ayr 43 - 15 Stirling County

A barn-storming second-half show, in which they scored 26 unanswered points, carried Ayr to victory – even though the hosts were lucky to still be in the contest at the interval.

Edinburgh Accies 12 - 71 Heriot’s

Heriot’s hold their nerve to edge capital thriller

Anyone at Goldenacre on Saturday afternoon might wonder what all the Super 6 fuss is about. Two good teams displayed oodles of attacking intent and plenty of skill in executing it in front of a healthy crowd on a superb surface. It was one of those rare days in rugby when both team’s offence had the better of the defence. Any side that could hold on to the ball for any length of time seemed destined to score.
