|Welcome to the Arnold Clark legacy Series Website
The Arnold Clark Legacy 7s Series is a showcase for 7s rugby played over 5 tournaments held in April/May each year.
The series has been established in the run up to the Glasow 2014 Commonwealth Games and offers a great opportunity to promote the sport whilst teams compete for individual tournament trophies and the overall title of Arnold Clark Series Champions.
Congratulations to Howe of Fife on winning their home leg of the Arnold Clark Legacy 7s Series. For the second week in a row their path to the final involved a semi-final fixture against Hamilton Bulls who had come so close to beating Howe in the semi-final at Boroughmuir. However, this time round Howe took no prisoners with a convincing 41-5 win over the men from Lanarkshire.
Meanwhile, Glasgow Hawks had to endure two very physical fixtures against GHA in the quarters and then Boroughmuir in the semi-final.
Howe put on a terrific performance in the final, defeating Hawks 50-26 in a very entertaining and competitive match. Howe of Fife now top the table in the series standings with Hawks in second place.
In the Ferrier cup, Dundee High School beat invitational side Seabass Select 36-26.

Congratulation to the Samurai Sports squad won last night's Boroughmuir 7s. The select squad of 7s specialists had a relatively straightforward path to the final beating both Boroughmuir and Dalziel in the group stage for a semi-final play-off against Glasgow Hawks who they beat 31-5. Their opponents for the final were Howe of Fife who had to cope with a tough semi-final against Hamilton. The young Lanarkshire squad had led up until half-time and looked like pulling off a win against last year's series finalists and only a disallowed try moments from the end secured Howe their place in the final.
From the very start it looked as though the final was going to be a pretty even affair with Howe looking more than a match for Samurai. On the 7th minute Samurai broke the stalemate and crossed the line for the first of 5 tries that would go unanswered. Howe managed a resurgence late in the second half with two well converted tries. However, their more arduous course to the final left them with little energy to sustain their comeback and Samurai scored twice more to win the cup 39-14.
In the Plate competition, Boroughmuir beat Stirling 19-0 to secure a further 5 series points.
Next week the Arnold Clark Legacy 7s Series travels to Cupar the home of Howe of Fife.
