The Cavaliers Foundation are a cause the club are hugely proud to support, and we are delighted that Cameron is raising funds for them.
The foundation was set up in memory of former 1st XV and club captain Steven Sims, and is focused on tackling the huge issue of concussion in youth rugby. They are working in partnership with HIT Ltd to develop new ways to spot concussion in youth rugby, and make our game safer for everyone that plays.
Cameron is currently half way towards his £500 target, and any donations would be hugely appreciated.

On Saturday several of our freshers headed to play in Howe of Fife 7s! The day started off slow against the Pigbarians (a match that included a sibling rivalry between the two teams!) despite some great tackles from our fresh-faced players. Keeping a positive attitude, they faced off against Scrum RP in a tough second match of the day. This match managed to take off for the Saints in the last 5 minutes or so, with great team work emerging in the left channel making some serious ground (shout out to Iona and Malou!). Moving into the third match against Heriots, enthusiasm was still bubbling despite a long wait in the cold over lunch – and it showed with the first try of the day! Overall a short but sweet day of rugby and a real confidence booster for the freshers on the team.
Thank you to Howe Harlequins and Howe of Fife RFC for hosting! And thanks to the players that joined us throughout the day! We look forward to seeing you next year!
We are delighted to announce our newly appointed 2019-2020 committee! Congratulations go to all members who ran today, all candidates spoke well with many excellent ideas suggested! We cannot wait to see what next year brings!
The gals headed up to the distant lands of Aberdeen for the North-East Rugby 7s Festival on Saturday!! Feeling chipper after a 7am start and various levels of hungover the plucky eleven drove to RGU’s Woodside pitches. First match was a tough start against Aberdeen Uni which was lost, only due to lack of conversions. The day continued with four more games against Strathclyde Uni, RGU, Strathmore and Fraserburgh. Tries coming from all sides of the team (although it has to be said Seamus did make up a big side), resulting in a straight run of victories! Highlights included players tripping over each other, falling over in a conversion attempt and some questionable lineouts. As the day was drawing to a close we prepared ourselves for what would be our toughest match yet, against the North East Harlequins. However, the round robin was cut short and the women’s final began. We were approached by a nervous man who explained we should have been in the final but he counted up wrong. As repayment a round of cider was bought for the team, which in all honesty was much more appealing than playing the Quins. All in all a fantastic day out and great preparation for St Andrews’ 7s next weekend! Also, special shoutout to fresher Lucie for some great play! #saintssport #evertoexcel @ Aberdeen ...
