Sirens bid for the title

All the local rugby clubs are expected to be back in action this weekend.

Newton Stewart are due to play Helensburgh at home on Saturday in a rescheduled fixture from January 25 when the match was called off due to a waterlogged pitch.

The last time the two met, Newton Stewart went down 26-10 at Helensburgh, back in October, so the Reds will be hoping to exact revenge for that reversal.

Stewartry travel to Clydebank and should be confident of winning. When Clydebank travelled to Castle Douglas in January, they were soundly thrashed 41-5 by the Blacks.

Wigtownshire visit Paisley for what should be a close encounter. When the two sides met in Stranraer last September, the London Road boys emerged winners from a very tight game that ended 13-11.

Stewartry Sirens are due to play Ayr Women on Sunday, March 30, in a clash that will decide who are this season’s RBS Women’s National League Division 2A champions. The crunch clash kicks off at 2pm.
