Tuesday 1st July 6.30pm: Edinburgh comes to Dundee

Edinburgh Rugby coaches Alan Solomons and Stevie Scott will run a training session at Mayfield for the Dundee squad in support of the clubs pre season plans.

Coach Colin Robertson said “It’s important we build our connection with the pro teams as we continue to create a environment to develop players towards pro rugby. Dundee has a strong recognised history supplying players to the pro and national levels. Its great to see Alan and Stevie coming to our club and I know the players are looking forward to it. We will also have a question and answer session afterwards.”

TFI® Friday type notice

Please don’t get over excited just yet! There are no FREE nibbles© or guess the wine competitions for a few weeks more. We don’t need to get Dod confused with opening time options either. The main purpose of this short email is the BBQ on the 26th July which we would like to see a big turnout for.
NB. Mid-Summer Rugby Club BBQ™ on Sat 26th July from 6pm.

Dear sponsor/member/player/Eagleperson/supporter/buftie/committee type/girlfriend/boyfriend/ casual acquaintance/or/#significantother. (abody basically!) Please do not be offended if you have not been categorised correctly.  We are an equal offending Rugby Club.

This is your personal invite to the pre-season Club BBQ which is almost FREE. The players will be returning from the Lunan Bay bootcamp and is a great opportunity to meet the guys and for the players to meet everybody else in all the other categories.

We only ask you to do two things. Tell us that you are coming and tell somebody else! Simple (make click noise) even for a Meercat! Then of course turn up…ok on reflection that might be three things! Multi-tasking is for everyone!

RSVP (that’s French for tell us if you are coming!) Reply to or your favourite Club contact.

Hope the sun tan is coming on and you are summering well?
