After eight months of rugby it all comes down to one match and eighty minutes to decide who will be the 2017 BT Premiership champions. Melrose v Ayr at Greenyards is a 3pm kick-off with admission on the gate.
Melrose are on a rugby roll having finished top of the Premiership at the end of the regular season before securing their place in the BT Cup final courtesy of a 48-18 win over Stirling County. However Melrose are not the only side with a league and cup double in their sights with today’s opposition Ayr – who finished second in the Premiership table just 4 points behind Melrose – also through to the BT Cup final next Saturday where the two sides will square off at Murrayfield.
It promises to be a nail-biter with ecstasy and agony in equal measure at the final whistle. Who will advance to next week’s BT Cup final with their double dreams still alive? All roads lead to Greenyards to find out!
Previous meetings this season: It’s 1-1 so far in matches between the sides. Back in September Ayr won 11-7 at Millbrae before Melrose got their revenge in December courtesy of a 27-10 victory.
Kick-off is at Greenyards is at 3pm.
Admission on the gate (cash only) priced: Adults £12/U16s free.
