Porty's boys did us proud

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.
