New season



WELCOME

On behalf of the Committee of Edinburgh Rugby Supporters Club ( ERSC ) welcome to a brand new season and a new MD of Edinburgh Rugby.

Official Supporters Club - ERSC is the Official Supporters Club for Edinburgh Rugby. It is run by a small committee of fans on behalf of all supporters. Like every club we are always looking for help either to serve on the committee, help out on match days or help with our website etc. Our website, e’mail, twitter and Facebook details are detailed below.

Season ahead – We are all looking forward to a new season with practically all of our home games based at BT MurrayfieldAs we know this season is a World Cup year and therefore we will lose a number of our front line players for the first part of the Guinness Pro 12 campaign. We wish them all success for Scotland in the tournament. However Edinburgh will still maintain a core of seasoned professionals and, along with a number of new exciting young players, we look forward to seeing them given the opportunity to hopefully shine. We all want to see winning rugby and hopefully this season will produce the results that we all crave.

Home match days will see the main supporters bar in the Thistle Suite in the West Stand. All are welcome before and after the match. Come and meet fellow supporters and also a number of the players and enjoy the food and drink on offer.Continuing on from last season the supporters club will have a table in the bar. We will again be awarding the ‘Supporters Man of the Match‘ trophy for every home league and European fixture in the bar after the game. 

A new feature this season is that, when our away games are being televised, we are partnering up with Heriots Rugby Club to host a ‘fan zone’ in one of their lounges in their clubhouse at Goldenacre. This will be open to all including our younger supporters as we try to generate more of a ‘club feel’ to the occasion.

ER Managing Director – We take this opportunity to welcome Jonny Petrie into his new role of managing director of Edinburgh Rugby. Jonny is a rugby man through and through having played the game from club to country and back to clublevel. We have already held a number of frank and open discussions with him and are looking forward to working with him and his team going forward.

TOT ZIENS, TIMBO!

Edinburgh Rugby:23 (10) Leinster: 36 (17)

With all matches in the final round of this season's Pro 12 kicking off at 1500 hrs today, much was up in the air.  Four sides were playing for home advantage in the knockout phase - Glasgow's second half cuffing of rivals Ulster at Scotstoun saw them finish top of the league.  And three sides, Scarlets, Connacht and Edinburgh, were scrapping for qualification to the top tier European competition next term.  Seven clubs with something tangible to play for at the death - proof positive that this format works.

The Gunners had a pretty good chance of a playoff spot, if they could beat Leinster at home, ideally with a try bonus, and Connacht lost to the Ospreys.  Reaching the Challenge Cup final and winning the 1872 Cup were already significant achievements, though.  They clearly believe in what they are doing and people are starting to fear them.
