"For those that have not heard was a meeting last night and the SRU have chucked us oot cup final , stripped of the bowl we WON against Liberton and stripped us if the Fraser James trophy for being best team in East o Scotland and took 13 league points of us. What a total joke . We are looking in to an appeal . But cant change we are unbeaten all season . Lets keep the heads up lads and get sevens out the way and be ready for max attack again next season."
St Boswells have been kicked out of Rugby Union's Scottish Bowl Final for allegedly fielding three ineligible players during the competition.
They would have been the only Borders team at National Finals Day next weekend.
The club says the players were dual-registered and that the steps taken are harsh, adding that legal advice will be sought.
