Good luck to Scotland and Fraser Brown (01-07) who play against Australia on Sunday. It's good to see both on and off the pitch, Merchistonians are playing their part in the Rugby World Cup. If you've spent time following Scotland through www.rugbyworldcup.com you've David Strachan (94-99) to thank for it's design and management.

I finish with a note from Jo Tennant, Editor of the Club Magazine: "With a fifth of my usual pestering timeframe, please do send in any news you have - a one liner synopsis on you… or tell me about Merchistonian:
- weddings and engagements
- graduations or achievements
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. From wherever in the world this finds you and at whatever life stage, the greater the number of contributions, the better.”
Until next week.
