A Curate’s Egg of a weekend for the club, with the 1st XV losing to Jed-Forest at Inverleith but the 2s recording a fine win against Dundee High at Mayfield.
The 1st XV appeared to be home and hosed against Jed, leading 19-3 after 20 minutes via tries from Liam (2) and Hayden, with Mike Hanning kicking two conversions. Jed pulled a try back just before half time, then went on to stage a tremendous fight back in the second half that saw them win the game 24-22.
This result leaves Stew Mel and Jed on 13 points in Premier B, although the men from Riverside Park have a game in hand. They have Hawks and Hawick to play, while we finish our campaign against the Nails at Goldenacre next week – looks like the Prem 2 title fight could go down to the wire!
Don’t have any details about the fine 43-23 win that the 2s recorded at Mayfield, but we’ll hopefully have a match report for you before too long!
