Will Super Six be the saviour or slayer of club rugby?

The year ahead promises to be an interesting one for rugby. The best two teams in world rugby will meet for the first time since 2014 and either New Zealand or England will get a huge boost one year out from the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

Marr 17-29 Hawick: Greens resist late fightback

Marr were here reminded of one of the eternal truths of Scottish rugby – you cannot give a Hawick team 17 points of a start, and expect to win. Trailing by that margin at the end of the first quarter, the hosts took until the 50th minute to score – by which time the Greens had extended their lead, but, for all their fire and fury over the remaining minutes, Marr had left themselves too big a mountain to climb.

Interview: Jim Renwick on local rivalry and the secret of the sidestep

Iam lucky to be talking to Jim Renwick today and you, dear reader, are lucky to be hearing his wonderful stories. Last weekend his son Neil suffered a horrible injury in the sport at which the old man excelled and the 52-cap Scot is only just back in Hawick after bringing the lad home from hospital.
