The new season fixtures for the BT Premiership season have just been announced with Boroughmuir Rugby kicking off their new season at home to Stirling County. With the recovery back into the Scottish Premiership achieved, Boroughmuir Ruby have been working hard over the off season to build their squad, ready to make a statement this season.
Director of Rugby Malcolm Clapperton commented
“The importance in getting us back up into the Premiership was vital for us to achieve last season. With this now done, new goals have been set and I am feeling very positive in our preparation.”
Clapperton went on to talk about the number of new players, enquiring about joining Boroughmuir Rugby:
“We are attracting a number of new players to the club who see what we can offer from the type of rugby we play to the vibrant nature of the club created by our great members and supporters. This will be an exciting season to be a part of.”
One of the changes introduced this season, which is seen as a positive step by the SRU, is the introduction of a ‘Premiership Play-Off’. This will see the top four teams, at the end of the league season, play out for the Premiership title by way of semi-finals and final games.
This will be great for Scottish Club rugby fans, as just because a team has finished top of the league, does not guarantee the Premiership Title.
Pre-Season games have been planned and will be announced when the information comes to hand.
