Comments from the Coaches:
Pat McArthur (Ayrshire Bulls) said:
“Concluding the season with a thrilling Championship Final at Hive Stadium against Stirling Wolves is truly a testament to the team’s dedication throughout the year.
“The players have tirelessly worked towards this moment, dedicating themselves in their training to improve key areas. The commitment displayed by all, including those who may have known their involvement in this particular game was limited, has been a driving force behind our preparation.
“We’re aware of the Wolves’ physicality and work at the breakdown, as seen in their match against Heriot’s last week. Having played in two finals the players know the importance of performing at our best.
“The support from our fans is evident, with numerous buses making the journey from Millbrae to Scottish Gas Murrayfield. We are determined to make our supporters, the club, and ourselves proud in this crucial match.”
Eddie Pollock (Stirling Wolves) said:
“Everyone at the club is excited to be in our first Super Series Championship Final. As a squad the team has improved throughout the year leading to some outstanding collective performances in the last few weeks on our run to the Final.
“We beat a very good Heriot’s side last week, with a smart, physical, accurate and above all disciplined display which demonstrated not only the quality of our play but also how the coaches have developed the players ability to adapt to a different game plan when required.
“Ayrshire Bulls are perennial finalists, who will offer us a different test. They are a very physical, direct team, with an excellent set piece and pace to burn in their outside backs. Pat McArthur and his staff have developed a very hard-working culture at the club, and it will be extremely difficult to break them down throughout the eighty minutes.
“As such we will strive to produce our best performance of the season and I know the players will leave nothing out there on Saturday. Matches against the two sides always produce exciting rugby and I am sure this year’s Super Series final will live up to everyone’s expectations.”
