This Season:

After last weeks match v Kirkcaldy Ladies was defaulted to the Warriors (as Kirkcaldy could not raise a team) the Annan Warriors became Champions of National 1 for season 2017/18. Not a bad effort for the Warriors in their first year at this level.

The step up to Premiership rugby is a huge one but sure the Warriors will be raring to go. Will announce when preseason training starts in the next few weeks!

The National Division 1 race has been nip and tuck all season between the top 3 teams; Warriors, Glasgow Uni and Broughton Ladies and each team has been at the top during the season. Luckily for Annan if was the Warriors who ended up on top when it was most important!

As for Sundays game, Broughton Ladies are the only team the Warriors have not beaten in the league this season so the Warriors will be up for correcting this! But I am sure the ladies from Edinburgh will be just as focused at getting the double over the Warriors and some of the bragging rights for the season!

Going to be a great game of rugby at Violetbank on Sunday.

Previous Encounters: So the Warriors welcome Broughton Ladies to Violetbank for the last league game of the season for the Warriors.

This is the first visit to Violetbank for the Edinburgh based club, The teams have only met once, earlier on in the season, when Broughton Ladies inflicted the only away defeat on the Warriors this season, winning 36-19.

Despite the league being decided, you know both teams will be wanting to win this one!

My prediction for the game: A Mally McGeoch drop goal in the last minute for the win!

Annan Warriors XV Squad:

Warriors Squad: 1 M Parker, 2 L Kyle, 3 E Jardine, 4 Abbie Clark, 5 C Clark, 6 L Moffat, 7 C Barnes, 8 C Aitken (c), 9 N Barlow, 10 M McGeoch, 11 J Stewart, 12 L Vevers, 13 A McWilliam, 14 M Alexander, 15 K Taylor.
