The rugby posts at Mackie are really good for Mackie Academy former pupil rugby club because if our home pitches are frozen or waterlogged then we can come here which would stop some of the cancellations”. This is a quotation from Ciaran Dreelan who is a club member and helps run the youth section.

“It has been proven that if a school is good and successful at sport then they will normally be a good school academically.”

The rugby posts were actually always at the school but no one had ever actually made the first move to get them put up. It wasn’t until the end of November 2013 that they were actually put up.
