Foul Fashion managed to go one better than last year when they won the Hunters Residential Edinburgh 10s on Saturday.

Last year the social team, mainly made up of player from the Heriot’s club, lost to a ‘golden try’ in the final against the Stockholm Exiles.

With the Swedish team not in attendance this time at Raeburn Place the Foul Fashion boys took advantage and lifted the Dunedin Cup with a 24-14 win over the Thistly Cross Tornadoes, also made up of mainly Edinburgh-based players, in the final.

The players that stood out for Foul Fashion were Graham Wilson, Jason Hill, Max Learmonth and Harry Boisseau.

In the semis they had defeated Samurai Scottish while the Tornadoes had got the better of the Edinburgh Accies Whites.

The Stevie Sims Cavaliers, who raise money for Wooden Spoon and the ITP Association, won the Auld Reekie Plate by defeating the Pigbarians, and it really is great to see the support these two charity teams are building up in the Scottish rugby community.

It was also good to see Stevie Sims’ parents there to see the trophy being presented.

Earlier in the day, in Group One, Foul Fashion came out on top with the Cavaliers second.

The Edinburgh Accies Whites were the best team in Group Two with the Pigbarians gaining second spot.

Samurai Scottish were the winners of Group Three with Movember the runners-up and the Tornadoes topped Group Four with the Belfast Bears in second. The Cobras won the touch rugby event and despite a couple of rain showers the weather was pretty most of the day meaning that a good crowd was always in attendance.
