RUGBY union will take over a small corner of Ayrshire this month.
THE PR brief carried a throwaway line; the match between Kilmarnock and Dundee United tonight is on the telly "and nobody will be watching more closely than Andy McLaren".

Allan Johnston, the Kilmarnock manager, feels his squad will reap the benefits of a happier and more professional training environment.
FOR most of the last 150 years, Ayrshire has been one of the unsung heartlands of Scottish rugby.
