Wolves v Tigers

On Sunday 9th June Edinburgh Wolves will take on the Glasgow Tigers at Meadowbank. This game will be the memorial game for a much loved and respected former player – Calum Veitch. Calum was a pupil at Portobello High school and played rb/lb for the Wolves, where he was voted player of the year for two seasons in a row. He also played for Musselburgh rugby football club’s under-18 team, The Colts.

Calum was a tremendous athlete with great potential and his infectious smile
and work ethic made him a coach’s favourite and his talent for rugby and
american football was clear for all to see.
His death hit the players and coaches hard and we retired his #52 shirt in his
honour, Calum will be the last player to ever wear the #52 shirt for any Wolves
At Sunday’s game we will hold a minutes applause as we remember a great player, great friend and terrific athlete.

Tickets are £3 for adults and £1 for children.
