PRE-SEASON FRIENDLY AGAINST PRESTON LODGE CONFIRMED FOR AUGUST 9

FULL COMMITMENT ‘A GIVEN’! Selkirk centre Andrew Given comes face-to-face with Andrew Toole at last week’s training. Looking on are Angus Duckett and Mikey Davies.

SELKIRK 1st XV will begin the build-up for their Border League opener against Melrose at Philiphaugh on Saturday, August 16, with a home friendly against Preston Lodge the previous weekend (August 9). The Pennypit Park side play their rugby in BT East Regional League Division 1, and the club will be bringing two teams down to Philiphaugh.

“It’s very good of Preston Lodge to take on these friendly fixtures against our 1st and ‘A’ XVs,” Selkirk’s director of rugby Cameron Cochrane told the selkirkrfc.com web site this week, “and I’m confident the whole exercise will prove highly beneficial for both clubs.

“As these friendlies are only three weeks away, I’d like to ask all our players to make every effort to get down to pre-season training on Tuesday and Thursday nights. New head coach Peter Wright is keen to get players’ fitness levels up so we can hit the ground running, and he’s putting in place new systems and codes which everyone will need to take on board.”

Meanwhile BT Reserve League fixture lists for both Selkirk ‘A’ and Selkirk Stormers have been released this week by the Scottish Rugby Union. The ‘A’ XV opens its BT Reserve League National 1 campaign with an away fixture against Aberdeen Grammar 2nds on August 30, with the Stormers kicking off their BT Reserve League East 2 schedule at home to Heriot’s FP 3rds on September 6.

ON TOP OF THE WORLD! MATT ENJOYS HIMALAYAS HIGH LIFE TO THE FULL

SUNNY SIDE UP. Selkirk player Matt Kissick tucks into breakfast at 12,000 feet, alongside his father Maurice and sister Chanelle.


SELKIRK supporters are used to seeing Matt Kissick hitting the high spots for the club’s 1st XV during the regular season, but the talented Kiwi forward scaled even higher peaks earlier this year when he went on a trekking holiday high up in Nepal’s Himalayan mountains.

“It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a while,” Matt told the selkirkrfc.com web site, “and when my parents came over from New Zealand to visit me in 2013, it became pretty obvious that my Dad had caught the travel bug and was up for another overseas adventure.”

And so it was that Matt, his sister Chanelle and father Maurice all met up in Kathmandu for a trekking holiday organised by travel company Peregrine Expeditions. “It was a fantastic experience,” said Matt, “and we all had a really great time.

“After a few days acclimatising ourselves in Kathmandu, we flew to Pokhara, which is Nepal’s third largest city with a population of 300,000. From there we were bussed up to a small mountain village called Nayapool, and it was from here we began our trek into the Himalayas.”

For the first two days the party were in the Annapurna foothills, passing through rhododendron forests and skirting terraced fields. Walking through villages always proved fascinating, said Matt, experiencing at first-hand some of the local customs and getting an insight into the simple life people led in this part of the world. It was also common to see wild yaks close by the trails.

“The highest point of the route was Kopra Ridge at 3,870 metres [12,650ft],” explained Matt, “where we stayed in a new community lodge. The views were absolutely stunning, and one of the most memorable moments came when we all got up before dawn to watch the sunrise.

“A big blizzard blew in on one of the nights we were staying at Kopra Ridge, and when we woke up at 5am everything was covered in a layer of brilliant white snow - a spectacular sight I’ll never forget.

“There were 16 in our tour group, plus four sherpas and eight porters. My sister and I were among the younger members of the party, while the oldest was a gentleman of 68. A few people were affected by altitude sickness, but by and large everyone was able to keep to the schedule and there were no real hold-ups.

“What made the holiday particularly special was meeting up with my Dad and my sister, and it was great hearing all the news from home.” Just where Matt’s next holiday will be is anyone’s guess, but it’s odds-on another adrenaline-filled foreign foray is in the pipeline…
