Help the Crusaders at the Melrose 10s Tournament on 10th April

No, the other Crusaders. To explain more, I’ll hand over to friend of the blog Mark Dainter, who’s looking for some veteran players to help out a good cause:

David meets Goliath in the name of “Charity” at the Melrose 10s’s Vets Tournament on Friday 10th April

“We are The Crusaders RFC, a charity touring rugby team made up of a group of players who have all either had cancer or had their lives touched by cancer. We have entered a side into this years Vet’s 10’s Tournament at Melrose on the 10th April and are currently looking for a couple more additions to our squad. If you’re over 35 or know someone who is and might be interested in playing against Vet’s team’s from Melrose, Hawick, Ulster and Edinburgh Accies. You could be playing against the likes of Craig Chalmers, Scott Hastings and maybe even Waisale Serevi so if you’re free on Friday 10th April please contact me at markdainter@googlemail.com. We would also love to have an international or two in our own team for a bit of PR so any ex Scotland players over 35 please feel free to contact me.

The tournament takes place on Friday the 10th of April with the final being played between the semi-finals and final of the main tournament on Saturday 11th at around 5:30pm. The final will be broadcast by BBC Scotland as part of their coverage of the main sevens event. The tournament will cost £45 (at present) to enter for each player which will include food & drink with entertainment on the Thursday evening.”

Play Rugby, Tackle Cancer

All the best to Mark and his team. I’ll be back tomorrow with some chatter about Glasgow’s match at the weekend.
