National League 1 Rugby - Jack Nixon
ELLON’S chance of making it three wins in a row were scuppered by the weather last weekend when their National League 1 match at Langholm was called off as a consequence of Milntown being deemed unplayable.
“It was a great shame not to get a game, especially as we have been playing so well, combined with the fact that our Border opponents have been on a bad run, but with a bit of luck we’ll get a game at the Meadows on Saturday against Livingston who are plumb bottom of the league,” said Mike Avis the Ellon head coach.
Morale is high in the Meadows camp after two recent wins, though Avis is still tinkering with the concept of bringing in young players from the second string side.
“There are encouraging signs that players from the second XV are ready to step up. They are our future”, said Avis.
On current form the West Lothian side should not pose any major threat to the home side, but as oft said there is many a slip twist cup and lip, as conceded by Avis.
“Writing off any side in this league would be wrong, even silly”, he concluded.
