Primmy reported thus on the game:
The 2nd XV drew 31-31 vs Heriot’s at Goldenacre. It was a game of two halves as Stew Mel produced some of their best rugby of the season in the first half as they raced into a 21-0 lead at the break. The Nails hit back in the second half to square the match but we held on to secure a draw with a try bonus. Tries came from Denis Pech (2), Connor McKay and Andy Wilson.
The player awards are as follows:
Leading Lion – Andy Wilson. An impressive performance in attack and managed to put in the work of a backrower with some crunching tackles in defence and several turnovers. The half backs of Toby Buchanan and Andy Warnock also deserve a mention for a fine display.
Champagne Moment – Stewart Haggart, for keeping his cool to slot the crucial penalty with only a few minutes left. He also had a very good first outing for the FPs and put in a 100% goal kicking performance with 5 out of 5.
DOTD – Nick McGlinchey, for thinking he was in an offside position when he intercepted the ball and so he handed it to the nearest Nail who dived over the line to score. Tit.
The Mighty Threes travelled west to play Linlithgow 2s at Mains Park. Expectations were low going into the game, but the 3s came away with a fine 22-12 victory. That’s them in the photo above.
There are three games at Inverleith next weekend, with the 1s playing Marr in a friendly, the 2s hosting Aberdeen Grammar and the 3s taking on Livingston 2s.
