Accies 79, Lenzie 0

“We will be looking, as always, to improve our game by increasing our accuracy and precision in all our tasks across the park”. All Blacks coach Steve Hansen uttered those words after his side beat our “Boys in Red” on Saturday evening, but they might just as well have been uttered by Coups after our […]

Match Report – Annan 13, Accies 32

This reporter was searching for a suitable quote to kick off this week’s report after a hard fought match down at Violetbank, Annan, when out of the mouth of our hooker came the words “it’s all in the passing” and so it was. After a deluge during the warm up the ground was slippery, as […]

And whilst you were at school, you probably didn’t pay any attention to your English Depts exhortations to appreciate Shakespeare’s famous (or infamous) rallying call in “Henry V” either, did you?

Good stuff!

A Special, Morally-Upstanding Correspondent writes for you: Accies were 5 – 0 down before many of the supporters had left the bar and taken their places on the touch line. From a knock on over Accies line the Glens pack turned the Accies 8 at the subsequent 5 metres scrum, this turned Accies back row […]

Annan 34, Accies 34

The value of travelling down into Dumfriesshire and enduring an expensive bus journey is almost always measured by the quality and volume of the banter on the journey home. Admittedly the boys were well-fuelled for it with a quite obscene amount of alcohol onboard Fairline’s finest, courtesy of the local Co-op “mega-store”, but they cranked […]
