The Staggs Bar Monarchs have bowed to what was probably inevitable and called off tonight's match with Somerset Rebels due to extreme weather forecasts. Anticipation for this fixture was high but Sam Masters' return to Armadale will have to wait a week.
We tried to give tonight every chance as we almost always do, in the hope that the forecasts would change and the worst of the weather might miss Armadale. This did seem a possibility early today but with forecasts now for thunderstorms plus a flood alert across Edinburgh and the Lothians, the game was up.
Our next match now is home to Berwick next Friday 26th July.
