Spent the morning with my boy at Murray field watching Portobello Rugby Club narrowly loose to Aberdeen University in the Scottish Hydro electric plate Final.
It was a nailbitter with Porty letting the Aberdeen side go 19 points ahead before fighting back to 21-22 before the students scored a late try. But the Porty boys fought until the end and did their club proud in what was Portobello's first national final for many years.
I continue to be in awe of Porty's ability to be such an inclusive and active club built entirely on the commitment and dedication of a huge team of volunteers. Thanks to them literally hundreds of boys and girls from age 6 upwards enjoy rugby week in and week out. They are a credit to their community and to our city.
