The rugby season has all but come to a close as Cup competitions reach their climax.
There will be a lot of anxious players glued to the TV on Tuesday when the Lions squad is announced live.
AS the season draws to a close, attention begins to turn towards selection for the British and Irish Lions tour to Hong Kong and Australia.
Spring. It’s an interesting time of year. Some rugby competitions have finished, such as the club Premiership which has been incredibly close behind Ayr and Gala. Others are reaching their climax as the battle for play-off places heats up.
THE Borders Sevens circuit kicked off yesterday, with the highlight next Saturday when Melrose play hosts to a cosmopolitan group of teams coming from as far away as India.
In the year of a Lions tour, the 6 Nations is always a good proving ground for selection.
SO another Six Nations has reached its conclusion and for once, Scotland are not propping up the table!
