Anti-social behaviour at Caberston Haugh
Published 6 Dec 2012 09:30 0 Comments
WALKERBURN rugby players are officially anti-social.
The struggling club's current crop of players were given the option of ditching competitive matches - to concentrate on fun and games in the bar.
Club president Russell Blackhall told the Peeblesshire News: "We put our options to all the squad members as we were continually struggling to put a side out.
"Among those options was the possibility of going to a social rugby club, but the categorical answer to that was that they wanted to play competitive rugby. It was a unanimous decision."
An agreement has now been reached to restructure the playing aspects of the club.
And to also launch a recruitment drive to attract more players.
Club captain Scott Elder told us: "We are based at probably the most picturesque setting in the whole of Scottish rugby.
"We really are a family friendly club and it so much more than just a rugby club.
No matter what level of rugby you have played, or if you would like to learn the game, we will make time for everyone."
There are currently close to 30 players on the club's books, but most are only available one or two Saturdays every month.
Scott added: "We play at a relatively low level by way of competitive rugby, but that could suit players who are just starting out in the game, or perhaps players who are in the twilight of their career who are looking to play for the love of the game."
