FANS flocked to the Greenyards on the weekend for one of the highlights of the rugby calendar.

There was a party atmosphere at the Melrose Sevens as a host of sides battled it out in the prestigious tournament.

Ahead of the two-day tournament Melrose Sevens called on spectators to "dress to impress" in their "wildest fancy dress attire", something which has become a fan-favourite tradition at the event.

Here are some of the best crowd shots from Saturday, April 13 taken by our photographer Alan Wilson.
