THE annual Stornoway Rugby Club ‘Boxing Day’ match will take place on Monday, December 26, at the Bayhead Pitch, Stornoway, with a 12 noon meet.

The last few years the weather has proved a little too much for the traditional match, with the 2010 boxing day scrum moved to the Lewis Sports Centre due to snow on the pitch.

It is hoped that this year the Bayhead green will be clear and all are welcome to come and join the fun, no matter age, size or fitness.

The Boxing Day match is a friendly game for anyone interested in playing rugby for five minutes or 80 minutes and every effort will be made to play some sort of rugby, regardless of the weather.
