Rugby players from far and wide will descend on Rothesay this Saturday, June 20, for Bute Rugby Club’s second annual ten-a-side tournament.

The inaugural competition last May was a huge hit with those who took part, and 2015 promises to be no exception.

In addition to the Bute representatives, Saturday’s programme is also set to feature last year’s winners Allan Glen’s, along with Cowal, TRI Rugby from Kilmarnock, two teams from Grangemouth and a Bute Exiles (or X-Isles, for those who remember their Roman numerals).

The action at the rugby pitch in Rothesay, next to the town’s swimming pool and leisure centre, gets under way at 12 noon - and with 20 games of rugby, and plenty of opportunities to socialise both during and after the competition, it promises to be a great day out. We’ll see youthere!
