Scotland Rugby League Club XIII will host the British Army Academy side at Earlston Rugby Club this coming Saturday.

The side is made up from players who play in and qualify for Scotland and come from all four corners of the country: from Aberdeen Warriors, Strathmore Silverbacks, Edinburgh Eagles and Easterhouse Panthers. The players have played one game as a unit against the English National Conference Side Siddal RLFC in Halifax three weeks ago with the Club XIII putting in a formidable performance and coming away with a victory 22-34.

The Army Academy side are in their final preparation game before they enter the Inter-Services championships on September 13 against the Royal Air Force in Salford.

“This is our only home game this year as the Club XIII and we are extremely excited to have the Army Academy side play us as well as being hosted by Earlston Rugby Club,” said head Coach Craig Parslow.

The match kicks off at 17.30 at The Haugh.
