Home Team Edinburgh Win SARFL Haggis Cup

After defeating semi-finalists Manchester Mosquitoes, Edinburgh bloods have successfully overcome a lot of tough local and international competition to seize the coveted Haggis Cup from their Scottish rivals, Glasgow Sharks.
Bloods captain and coach Alan Snow McSparron's speech after their triumphant win (and all the results) can be seen below.




Despite the small size of the league in Scotland, there was a big turnout for the Haggis Cup, arguably one of the most famous pre-season competitions in European footy, with teams coming from as far wide as Dublin and Milan. This year there was also a women’s division, with up and coming Scottish and English talent teaming up with Irish teams from Dublin and Kilrea.
Apart from the two women’s teams, the first games were in group stages with the winners from each group going through to the Haggis Cup finals. Because there were three groups, the top team automatically qualified with the two runners up playing each other in a semi-final for the second finals place.
The second placed teams from the group stages played each other for the Haggis Plate, and the third placed teams played each other for the Haggis Bowl. The women’s game was held as a curtain raiser for the Haggis Cup Final.

Edinburgh Bloods
