|Single Sentence Summary||A bonus point win in the Borders is never easy, so well done to the team – we struggled during the first half but looked much more composed as the game opened up after the break|
|Leading Lion||Many fine performances over the 80 minutes – particularly from Mark, Seb, Hayden and Liam – but Scotty Riddell gets the nod for keeping the side together during that awkward first period|
|Pie Points||Equity analyst and leading Dragon MacColl was despatched on a pie purchasing errand to a single income stream meat retail outlet (Forsyth’s the Butchers).
He eyeballed the owner with a steely gaze and said ‘I’ll buy three of your pork pies – but I want 10% equity in your firm’.
Verdict from the noted Baillie Gifford Contrarian: ‘There’s money in pastry – just look at our committee’.
