It is the weekend that will decide who is going to be playing in the Sarah Beaney Cup Finals – presented by BBC - Alba as the semi-finals take place at Millbrae and Myreside.

In the Women’s Plate and Bowl competitions, three semi-finals will be taking place along with some of the remaining quarter-final matches

The finals for all three competitions will take place at Silver Saturday on Saturday 27 April. The finals day is being held at BT Murrayfield will see the Sarah Beaney Cup Final being broadcast live on BBC ALBA.

In the Sarah Beaney Cup, Ayr RFC will be hosting reigning champions Hillhead Jordanhill at Millbrae and Heriots RFC play Watsonian RFC at Myreside.

Ruth Slaven, Head Coach at Heriots, said, “We dreamed of being in the semi-final of the Sarah Beaney Cup in our first season, we worked hard to make it a viable goal and now I couldn’t be prouder of the work the whole club has put in to get us here.”

Talking about the other semi-finalists, she said, “We have been so impressed with our opponents, over the last year in particular, they have added depth to their senior squad and now have a pathway with a junior squad.

“It’s so exciting to see the game growing all across the city and Watsonians have certainly been the leading team. We know they will have their hearts set on going one better than last year on finals day, but we will push them all the way.”

In the National Women’s Plate semi-finals, Stewartry RFC will be hosting Inverness Craig Dunain RFC.

David Thomson, head coach of Stewartry Sirens, said, “It’s awesome to know that we are in the semi-final and one potential win from a trip to Murrayfield for the final. It’s testament to the team for the efforts they’ve made over the season, both on game day and at training.

“We wish Inverness a safe trip down the road, a huge shift from them, as it’s not exactly just around the corner. We have never played Inverness before, so this is adding to the excitement of the day.”

In the National Bowl semi-finals, Stornoway will be hosting Livingston and Greenock will be playing against West of Scotland RFC. Livingston also have a team playing in the semi-finals of the Girl's Club U18 Cup on Sunday.

Ally Hunter, Greenock Wanderers Head Coach, said, “The girls have trained hard and preparations have gone well this week. This is the first time we have played West so they will be a bit of an unknown quantity and we expect a tough match. Hopefully we can perform well enough to return to Silver Saturday for the second year in a row.”
