Six Ardvreck School pupils had the honour of playing for the Scottish Prep Schools XV in a special match against an Edinburgh select XV last weekend.

Andy S (Captain), Archie MM, Jake S, Teddy T, Archie H and Josh D from the Crieff school joined players from six other prep schools to make up the team for the game at Greenyards, home of Melrose RFC.

The Prep School team had a decent game, but unfortunately had a slow start that ultimately cost them the match as they lost 17-12.

The Prep Schools team might have turned around the loss given another five minutes, but it wasn't to be.

The six Ardvreckians pupils played very well and made everyone at the school enormously proud of their achievements.
