The Ayrshire Bulls have officially secured their place in the first-ever FOSROC Super6 final, taking place on Oct 17 at Edinburgh Rugby’s DAM Health Stadium.

Their place was confirmed after a successful weekend of action, which started with a win over the Southern Knights – who they’ll meet again in the final – on Friday night. The 17-13 victory propelled them to the top of the league but without a try bonus point they needed to wait until Sunday to find out if they could still be caught by third-place Watsonians. In the end, Boroughmuir Bears did the Bulls and Knights a favour – defeating Watsonians to confirm that the top two could no longer be caught.


The Bulls travel away to Watsonians this Sunday in their final regular-season game, but the result there will only decide whether they go into the final seven days later as the first or second seed.


The Bulls and Knights have been the two outstanding teams this campaign and have been bookies favourites for the final for a few weeks now. They both sit on 31 league points from nine encounters, but the Bulls edge their rivals on points difference, racking up +114 to the Knights’ +66. The two have already met twice this season, with the Knights sealing victory at the Greenyards before the Bulls levelled the score on Friday.

The weekend’s good news wasn’t exclusive to the Bulls. Ayr’s Club XV and Ayr/Millbrae sides also bagged victories, beating Kelso 35-25 and Cartha 22-19 respectively. The U18s also went two-from-two on the weekend.


It was different fortunes on Sunday for the ladies, who fell short against Garioch 14-40.
