What is the value of Rugby Sevens?
What should we make of seven-a-side rugby?
Is it a diversion from the theme of trying to win Six Nations matches, or is it a core activity we should encourage much more?
Anyway, that was Melrose Sevens that was. A sunny day, and the local club beat the experts from the Southern Hemisphere in the final.
My band played a gig at night at the post match party, and today it's been a stunning drive through Border country to get home to Glasgow.
There's no doubt that the Melrose Sevens are very good for the Melrose Rugby Club.
It must be a substantial income-earner for a club in a small town that has the great fortune to have founded the shortened game and is now profiting from it.
Even if the butcher who invented the whole thing, Ned Haig, was from Jedforest and probably doing missionary work.
Crikey, his great, great, great nephew was playing for Jed.
I don't know how much Melrose make from the tournament but there is an argument that perhaps they should share it more with teams taking part.
Though you could posit, quite rightly, that this particular line of argument is sour grapes as every club hosting a sevens tournament does so to make cash, and Melrose are no exception.
Now, I never used to be a fan of sevens. All these whippets running around for 14 minutes without a serious front-five player in sight was never my idea of fun.
But now I get it. It's entertaining, it's over much more quickly, there are no re-set scrums, and the big fat lads are off the pitch.
But I'm not sure that a great sevens player automatically becomes a great 15-a-side man, and vice-versa.
Oh, most of them will because skills are completely transferable, but specialism in fifteens is key, as is weight.
The modern international player we see at Twickenham is, depending on position, between one and three stones overweight by dint of weight training-induced muscle.
The last thing seven-a-side players need is too much weight.
They have to run. One of the first thing fifteens players need is weight, as much of their time is spent crashing into people.
Momentum, according to my dim memory, is mass multiplied by velocity. Mass, helped by the purchase of studs in the ground, is a precious thing.
But where I see sevens having a key role is in player development.
You will never be more exposed in rugby than when someone passes you the ball when you are exhausted and there are 80 metres to go and you are in a murderous game of sevens.
I've been there, back in the day at the Greenyards, and I am just getting over it.
Well done Melrose.
What do you think? More or less sevens?
