KIRKCALDY SEVENS

The 63rd playing of Kirkcaldy Sevens for the Heggie Cup, sponsored by legal firm Digby Brown, at Beveridge Park last Saturday survived almost every form of adverse weather but ended in bright spring sunshine with a new name on the trophy.  Falkirk became the seventh different winner in the last seven years  and fully justified the winners’ tag with  a comprehensive 41-0 victory in the final against Edinburgh based RHC.

U16 hard fought win against Irish Touring Side

Kirkcaldy 45 Clanwilliam  31

A warm, sunny, Friday evening game with a large boisterous crowd, a full complement of officials and opposition just arrived from Ireland: this was definitely not the normal weekly match for the U15/ U16 squad.

Hastily arranged matches against touring sides are often a bit of a lottery as it is difficult to judge how well matched the teams are (and to predict what state the tourists will be in when they arrive). Indeed, at the start of this game it looked as if the home team were in for an easy time as good phases of play took them into the opposition 22, the ball was recycled quickly from a ruck and Jon ran a great line to go in under the posts unopposed. Clanwilliam, however, were made of sterner stuff and, having run off the effects of their journey, hit back with two excellent scores, as they pulled the Kirkcaldy back line out of shape and powered over.

League matches may have just finished at the Beveridge Park, but the rugby continues this Saturday with the annual Kirkcaldy Sevens tournament. For the first time the event joins the Legacy 7s series and also serves as the opening round.

Play gets under way at 12 noon, with the on-field action lasting until around 6pm. Off the pitch we’ll have a BBQ, kids can enjoy a rugby taster session, while the entertainment continuing into the evening with a disco at the club, hosted by Richard Dewar. Our thanks go to Digby Brown Solicitors who will once again sponsor the event.

The club hopes to welcome around twelve senior Men’s teams, who will compete for the Heggie Cup - won last year by Boroughmuir. A selection of Ladies squads also taking part in their own competition. 

The Legacy 7s series was established in the run up to the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow and this year features seven events held over five weeks across Central Scotland. Teams score points based on their finishing position in each tournament, with the top clubs qualifying for the Glasgow City Sevens in May.

KIRKCALDY 43 ARDROSSAN ACADEMICALS 12
 
The Blues survived lengthy periods of sustained Ardrossan pressure before asserting themselves in the last quarter to romp home in the final home game of this campaign. The home side had started strongly with two converted tries on the board by the seventeenth minute. Then they drifted into sleep mode allowing the pacy Ayrshire back line to carve out a succession of chances, only one of which was taken.
 
Whatever coach Quintan  Sanft said to his troops at half time had the desired effect.  Kirkcaldy sharpened up in every department  with a further five tries following in a rampant second half performance.

Montrose 5 Kirkcaldy 34

The nature of this match changed emphatically mid-way through the second half when Scott A suffered a double fracture to his left leg when making a tackle. This led to a considerable delay as Scott’s injury was treated and both teams had to try to keep their focus for the restart.

The opening half had been a staccato affair, with the tone set when Kirkcaldy were penalised for their first tackle in the match and, after again sustaining the referee’s displeasure, found themselves defending on their own 5 metre line. To the players’ credit, they kept their focus, played their way out of trouble and began to put together some attacks.
