1st XV vs Watsonians (Cup): Stats

Here’s all the news that’s fit to print from our narrow Cup defeat at Myreside today:

Sequence 5-0, 7-0, 7-3, 10-3, 13-3, 13-6, 13-11, 13-16, 16-16 (half time), 19-16, 22-16
Tries Richard Borthwick (31 mins), Mike Hanning (35 mins
Penalties Mike Hanning 2 (12 & 23 mins)
Cards Adam Howie saw yellow just before half time for going off his feet at a break down (thus allowing Hayden to participate in his first ever scrum!) The ‘Sonians 6 was then yellowed for a ruck offence just before full time.
Referee Jean-Marie Burel of Morgan 
Single Sentence Summmary Ah, the customary no-mance of the Cup: a pretty lacklustre performance, with too many handling errors and not enough decision making when it was needed
Leading Lion Tempted to go with the initial response from one of the coaching team (‘Nae one – they were all shite!’), but let’s stay positive. Blair was the pick of the forwards today, while Mike Hanning was, once again, at the heart of everything that went well for us. So let’s go with Blair, as Mike must be getting fed up with all these Leading Lion nods!
Pie Points Had a couple of fairly decent Pukka pasties from the coffee van lurking at the south end of the ground, but that was about it on the food front (crisps don’t count!)
Bevvy Bulletin Nada – drove to Myreside, once again, and couldn’t stomach the thought of smug Soneybums in the clubhouse afterwards
