PigbariansBo'ness Rugby Club Sponsored by Corbie Inn Play Charity Match

Scotland’s newest rugby club, Bo’ness RFC, will continue making up for lost time tomorrow when they entertain a Pigbarians Charity Select to be played at Linlithgow Sports Centre with kick-off at 2.00pm.

Bo’ness played their first fixture against a Murrayfield Wanderers XV in March and intend to continue with a fixture list throughout the summer.

This will be their first game wearing their sponsor's logo on their new strips.

Hopefully, it helps them withstand the onslaught they will undoubtedly encounter from the experienced Pigbarian lineup.

Bo'ness Rugby Club were formed as a result of a social media campaign and boast Edinburgh and Scotland stars Geoff Cross and Allan Jacobsen among their Honorary Presidents.
