Cambuslang Rugby Club coach Scott Forrest admits that the side’s stop-start season is “frustrating.”
The former Scotland 7s captain has been used to the best facilities during his playing career, which took him to Dubai, Hong Kong and Las Vegas.
But now he’s back home at Cambus, it’s been a struggle to find somewhere to train during the cold snap.
He said: “I’ve been a while since I’ve had to experience stuff like this when the weather isn’t good, as I’m used to having somewhere to train.
“With our training pitch out of action, we’ve been using Fernhill, which has excellent facilities, but sometimes the weather gets on top of things and they have to be closed for safety reasons.
“It’s got to the point where every facility is booked, which I suppose is a good thing, that people are wanting to do healthy activity.
“We were disappointed Saturday’s game with McLaren was off -I was down on Thursday afternoon and the pitch was playable, but by Friday there was no way it could go ahead. We’d beaten them away and were looking to get a good performance at home, and a bonus point.”
This weekend Cambus travel to face Carrick, who defeated them in the cup earlier this season.
Scott added: “Their ground is right by the sea, so they don’t have the same problem we have with frost.
“We just want to keep our momentum going.”
