Flying Ayr clip Ravens' wings
Ayr 41 Ulster Ravens 22
Ayr ran in six tries to defeat Ulster Ravens in a hugely entertaining match in pool six of the British and Irish Cup. Finn Russell and Andrew Dunlop crossed the whitewash, as did George Hunter (above) and Ross Curle, who each got a brace. Russell added four conversions and a penalty. Read the match report here.
The 2nd XV also won, beating Edinburgh Accies 23-19 in a rescheduled match at Raeburn Place, and Millbrae had a huge 64-0 win over Glasgow East.
The under-15s are currently top of West Division 1 and through to the U15 Cup Final against West of Scotland, and to cap a successful weekend, the under-16s became national league champions with a victory over Falkirk after an unbeaten campaign.

Peter McCallum has been voted Ayr's player of the month for November in our online poll. After some excellent performances over the past few weeks, the young back row player, who has also featured at lock, took an unassailable lead within a few hours of the vote opening. Well done Peter!
