Scottish League Rd 2 Fife 8 - 48 Edinburgh Glasgow 26 - 86 Strathmore Two tough games for Fife and Glasgow against the league's big boys, Glasgow especially doing well after a 18 month layoff Some footage from Fife showing them doing some good line speed and solid tackling Well done to everyone
  4. Scottish League Rd 2 10th July Glasgow v Strathmore Fife v Edinburgh All the best folks
  5. Anyhow what the Vikings have achieved in such little time is amazing and overtime the lads will grow and results will improve as with all the Scottish teams in a new fledgling league.

  17. Looking amazing mate, got a good feeling about Scottish RL, hopefully the momentum carries on over the coming years.
  18. Scotland RL also looking at developing RL X League, planning to enter a couple of teams in this year's WC in Sheffield. Another good development tool in attracting people to the sport https://www.facebook.com/105717041307807/posts/196074598938717/
  19. Hit the preverbial nail on the head, whilst I advocate for a Scottish team to enter the RL we must first build the experience, the legacy & interest. I would be more than happy over the coming 10 years for an established league of our own which may create player pathways for players to move south if they wish to. Playing in England is not the be all and end all. We can build on our links with Newcastle & would be nice to link in with a Cumbrian side
  20. Former Edinburgh Eagles Player, Newcastle & Scotland U19s Fergus Simpson signs for Red Star Belgrade https://www.rlkcrvenazvezda.com/en/2021/04/13/novo-pojacanje/

  24. Back in the day when I played you could easily pick a players position by the way they looked I was skinny..ish but he'll could I run so winger for me, hooker... short, tough as nuts Props even 2nd row... were beasts massive Loose forward.... big lad but could run and had good feet Scrum half... Even stand off smallest lad on the pitch but could get where water couldn't..nippy wee buggers Centres were good ball handlers, runners with a bit of muscle behind them Full back....who the hell wanted toplay that position is beyond me Back in the today, players just look the same, huge, beasts, the preverbial brick s#@t houses
