With the weather, international fixtures and Scotland Club XV commitments throwing a spanner in the works, a couple of Ayr's RBS Premiership ties have been rescheduled. Their next match will be on the evening of Friday 14th March against Glasgow Hawks at Millbrae. Their postponed game with Hawick will now be on Saturday 29th March at Mansfield Park.
Ayr secure bonus-point win over Accies
Ayr ran in four tries to secure a 22-11 win over Edinburgh Accies at Millbrae on Ladies' Day. It was double Gossman trouble for Accies in the first half as they couldn't contain Kerr and Craig, who each got a try. In the second half, replacement scrum-half Murray McConnell delighted the home crowd with a forty-metre sprint up the touchline, which culminated in an elegant swan dive to grab his try. Second row Scott Sutherland wasn't quite so elaborate when he powered over for his score. Ross Curle added a conversion. Read the match report here and view the photos here.
The second XV also won at Millbrae, beating their Accies counterparts 13-7. The under-18s beat Hamilton 33-0.
Another big win for Ayr Ladies
Ayr Ladies beat RDVC 71-5 at a very muddy Millbrae on Sunday afternoon. There were tries aplenty as the ladies let loose after a narrow defeat to Glasgow University a few weeks ago. They will have their chance for revenge on Sunday 23rd March as they again face the Badgers in the bowl semi-final at Millbrae.
