West Rugby are hoping to round off their season this Saturday on a high note when they face East Kilbride at Burnbrae.

Forwards coach Mike Cusack reckons it will be a tough encounter but has his fingers crossed the squad can re-produce the form they had against Murrayfield Wanderers. In that game two weeks ago the Burnbrae outfit scored an amazing 104 points to nil.

Cusack said: “Saturday is our last game of the season and we really want to go out on a high note. East Kilbride are not bad and they are very strong so we will have to watch them.”

If West win at Burnbrae on Saturday it will mean they finish third in the league, just missing out on promotion to National League two.

Vice president Guy Perrett said it had been a bit disappointing to miss out on promotion, but added that overall it had been a very positive season.

He said: “This has been a season of consolidation. We have had a number of changes in the coaching staff with Andy Douglas and Mike Cusack coming in.

“It would have been nice to win promotion, but we went through a bad spell after the New Year which didn’t help.

“However, overall it has been a good season and we will be pushing for promotion next season.”

Supporters are urged to go to Burnbrae for 3pm.
