Sirens make the play-offs

The Stewartry Sirens women’s rugby team have made it through the play-offs to decide who will be league champions.

The girls put in a splendid performance away to Grangemouth on Sunday, winning 77-0 to set up a round-robin trio of crunch matches. They scored 11 tries in total, eight of them bagged by Hannah Sloan alone.

There was a significant price to pay, however, with a serious injury to Dawn Currie, who broke and dislocated her ankle. Dawn was taken to Forth Valley Royal Hospital, where she underwent surgery but was released on Sunday evening and is now recovering at her mum’s house.

In the play-offs the girls will face Ayr, Glasgow University and RDVC (the Royal Dick Veterinary College) to see who will be champions of the RBS Women’s National League Division 2.

The play-offs should produce some cracking matches as Stewartry, in the league, have already beaten the RDVC and Glasgow University teams, but lost by just three points to Ayr.

The play-offs are scheduled to take place during February and March.
