Match Report
Merchiston Castle School U13A vs  Ardvreck Prep 7s - 2019
On: Sunday, 03 Nov 2019
Venue: Away

The Ardvreck 7s is always one of the highlights of the U13A rugby season. The tournament continues to grow and saw all the Scottish Prep Schools present on the day, the squad knew that there was to be a tough day in store.

With rain forecast throughout the day, we had key aims in order to be successful. Simple game plan executing simple skill sets, releasing the ball into wider channels and finally to win the breakdown. We did so and to a brilliant level throughout the day, first of all beating Craigclowan and Lathallan in the group stages. We then were successful against St. Mary’s and Cargilfield in the quarter-finals and semi-finals respectively. That took us through to the final against Strathallan who we had lost to in the Conference Game just the day before, coming away successful once again to win the tournament.

Credit goes to the 10 boys who travelled up to Perthshire today, a complete squad performance, and a huge thank you to the four senior 1st XV boys who guided them with their advice and support throughout the long day.
