Boroughmuir have welcomed the introduction of play-offs to decide the next Scottish Premiership.

“One of the changes introduced, which is seen as a positive step by the SRU, is the introduction of a ‘Premiership Play-Off’,” the club says in a statement on their website. “This will see the top four teams, at the end of the league season, play out for the title by way of semi-finals and final games.

“This will be great for Scottish club rugby fans, as just because a team has finished top of the league, does not guarantee the Premiership title.”
