BUDDING rugby stars from North Berwick RFC have been selected to form the guard of honour at the Edinburgh Rugby vs Zebre match tomorrow (Friday).

Youngsters from the Recreation Park club were chosen by Miller Homes and will cheer on the home team before kick-off in the Guinness Pro 14 clash.

Edinburgh players Alistair Dickinson (prop) and wing Darcy Graham were at the club on Saturday to put the youngsters through their paces and pose for photographs.

The club’s managing director, ex-Scotland captain Jonny Petrie, said: “We’re delighted to have enhanced our partnership with Miller Homes for 2017, a valued sponsor of Edinburgh Rugby.

“Our sporting community is the bedrock of this club so it’s great to have Miller Homes partner with us to enhance our match day experience and have local clubs share the spotlight with the team as they take to the field.”

Stewart Lynes, managing director of Miller Homes Scotland, added: “Forming the guard of honour is a money-can’t-buy opportunity and we’re excited to offer the participating junior rugby fans a truly memorable experience. Miller Homes is creating a number of new communities across Edinburgh and the Lothians over the coming years so we’re delighted to support the local community in any way we can.”

Four of the current Edinburgh squad – Chris Dean, Lewis Carmichael, Tom Brown and Callum Hunter-Hill – learned their trade at North Berwick Minis before going on to sign professional deals.
