Recent Results

14-03-15
We can't give Gala A's result 2nd billing this week.
Despite losing 21-12 at Heriots some seriously solid defence denied their hosts try after try and prevented them getting the crucial bonus point try.
As a result Gala A are BT Reserve League National 1 Champions
Many congrats to all players, coaches , support staff etc that have been involved this season.

Recent Results #2

14-03-15
1XV go down 34-28 at Heriots despite twice clawing their way back into it and looking to have a try in the closing stages.
2 bonus points from the game, but our play-off fate is now in the hands of the Currie/Hawks result. Quite simply, if Currie win we miss the play-offs.
