Youth Tickets for 6 Nations

Please apply now for youth tickets to the 3 Scotland home matches in this season’s RBS 6 Nations. If you have already requested tickets then there is no need to re-apply. Unfortunately, there was insufficient demand for Autumn Test tickets, so we were unable to apply (Youth tickets are only issued through Clubs and Schools)

Information and Application Form


Pie, Pint & Programme
Saturday 29 October


Attention all Ex-players (including Ex-Coaches, Ex-Back Room Staff & Ex-office Bearers). The club is hosting a Former Players Day at the club on Saturday 29th October. Both the 1st XV & 2nd XV are at home that day and it is hoped to get as many ex-players down as possible. £10 a head gets you a pie, a pint and a special match day programme as well as the opportunity to reminisce about how great we all were back in the day! Hopefully this can be the start of an annual event in the clubs calender.  Numbers are currently sitting around the 70 mark!

Reds Fixtures

The scheduling computer must have developed a glitch, as 6 of our 9 home matches were scheduled in the first half of the season. To compound this, Duns requested a switch of home and away fixtures, which gives us 7 home matches in the first 9 games. In the Shield, our first fixture is away to either Broughton or Dalkeith.
