1st & 2nd XVs lose to Stirling County
The 1st and 2nd XVs both lost their pre season games at Bridgehaugh today, the 1s going down by 43-20 and the 2s by 38-10.
Despite these scorelines, the mood in the Stew Mel camp was upbeat afterwards. This was, after all, the first game that the 2nd XV had played together this season, while the 1s were only 23-20 down at the start of the second half.
The 1s were, ultimately, outgunned by the power of the County pack and the home side’s ability to punish our mistakes with clinical precision.
The 1st XV points came via two tries by Hayden (both converted by Stu Ker) and two penalties from Stu.
