Match Summary : Mighty 3’s 36-48 RHC 2nd
“10 minutes to go, game on a knife edge at 36 points a piece, we might just have taken it but alas it was not to be ……. but what a spirited effort from each and everyone of the squad who pitched up on a glorious day at Inverleith.
RHC arrived early and looked a well organised bunch. All the more surprising then as we ran up an early 19 point lead before our guests started to claw themselves back into contention. In fact our third score, possibly one of the finest ever seen on Pitch 3, saw the ball being passed through at least eight pairs of hands before touch down …… remarkable rugby from a team getting to know each other! This try though only served to kick start the RHC comeback and saw them pile on 36 points before we managed to stabilise the ship!
Final Score Stewart’s Melville 3rds 36 – RHC 2nds 48
RHC will do well this season. As for ourselves we have the makings of a good season too. The McPhail Bros, Ross and Gregor, together with Andrew Mustard caught the eye in the forwards. TJ and Rob Truskett are both very gifted footballers.
So we march on Linlithgow next week ….. see you there
