16 April 1977

From the Strathearn Herald of 23 April 1977:

CRIEFF SEVENS With no game last week, the Crieff R.F.C. ran a ‘sevens’: five sides from the club, and a few over, and one invitation side provided good sport and enjoyable watching. The young team proved that fitness in this type of rugby is of first importance.

29 April 1944

From the Strathearn Herald of 22 April 1944:

A rugby seven-a-side tournament has been organised to take place in the Market Park on Sunday first when the Garrison Theatre Committee has arranged for teams from military units to compete. A massed pipe band will parade and play during the evening and the prizes are to be handed over by the Brigadier. The sum of £27 was realised from last week’s event. For this week several noted Scottish ‘rugger’ men will appear in the competing sides, including at least two internationals.
