After setting off from Murrayfield on Monday, 1st October #Doddie5TartanTed has been travelling around around a number of rugby clubs in Scotland, the end goal being that Ted makes it to Cardiff in time for the Doddie Cup match on 3rd November.
In our last blog Ted could be found with Edinburgh Accies club President Frank Spratt.
On Tuesday Ted spent the Morning with Edinburgh BATs, a socially inclusive rugby club based in north Edinburgh. Pupils from Flora Stevenson Primary, Stockbridge Primary & Trinity Academy were all involved in the training session.
In the evening Ted then trained with Glenrothes Rugby youth before heading further north in Fife. (Yes, a wee bit of a detour en-route to Cardiff)
Fife Clan community Coach and Howe Harlequins player Liana Mitchell then took over looking after Ted during his time with Howe of Fife RFC.
The Fife Clan are a Unified rugby team who welcome players with moderate learning difficulties or disabilities which mean they cannot take part in full contact rugby.
Howe of Fife RFC are based in Cupar, Fife, Scotland. The club was founded in 1921, and their senior men play in blue and white hoops. The mens 1st XV currently play in national league division two. Their women's team, the Howe Harlequins, play in national league division one.
