Ayr Rugby Football Club
The BT Premiership is back, and Ayr get 2016/17 going with a home clash against Currie on Saturday, kicking off at 3pm.
Both sides will be more than eager to get off to a flying start and lay down a marker for the rest of the season.

"Ben (Cairns, Currie head coach) has built a strong squad over the last couple of season," says Ayr head coach Calum Forrester, "and I am sure it will be stronger again going into this fixture."

After some hard work over the summer, the squad is raring to go, and tomorrow will see winger Jamie Bova and flanker Gregor Henry make their 1st XV debuts.

Hooker Robbie Smith, prop Adam Prentice and centre Stafford McDowall could also make their first appearances in the pink and black from the bench.

Millbrae will be packed as it's Ladies' Day, and the extra few hundred female fans always create a brilliant atmosphere for the players and the rest of the crowd.
