Not the best weekend for the Club, with both 1st and 3rd XVs losing to Edinburgh rivals.
The 1st XV were well in touch at half time at Myreside, trailing 9-8 and with the wind at their backs after the break. A penalty from Kaide then took us into an 11-9 lead before a disastrous ten minute spell saw us ship three converted tries to trail 30-11.
To the boys’ credit, they then clawed themselves back into the game via tries from Angus Lean and Borth and a penalty from Mike Hanning, but we still went down 30-28.
On the bright side, the bonus point we secured means that we will definitely finish top of Premier 2 before the split, thus securing a favourable draw in the playoffs.
The 3s lost 29-19 to a useful Edinburgh Accies side (albeit one that KICKED PENALTIES) at Raeburn Place.
The 2nd XV returned to winning ways this week, hammering Hillhead Jordanhill 62-11 at Inverleith.
