Match Report
Fettes College Prep 1st XV vs  Merchiston Rugby Festival
On: Wednesday, 06 Sep 2017
Venue: Away

The 1st XIII travelled to Merchiston on a beautiful day to have a preseason work out with a number of different prep schools around Scotland. It was a good chance to see the team in match action before training on Friday to improve what was seen at Merchiston. Our first full fixture is against Craigclowan next Wednesday so a lot was learned. The boys played three 12 minute games against Ardvreck and Merchiston. The Ardvreck game was first and seemed to catch the boys cold as Ardvreck played a lot better and scored the only try of the match. In the next game, the boys played so much better and eventually drew the game but in terms of the whole performance – it was very encouraging. The final game was against another Merchiston side and again, it was another notch up the ladder in improvement. The boys are looking forward to training on Friday to iron out what they need to work on moving into next week.
