Carlsberg don’t do opening days of the season, but … on a fine day for the club, both the 1st and 2nd XVs recorded victories.
The 1s trailed Falkirk 18-24 with 10 minutes to go in their match, but fought back via a converted try by Liam Steele and a penalty by Stu Ker to win 28-24. Our other points came from tries by Phil Hendry and Liam, with Stu adding the remainder with his boot.
The 2nd XV won 33-28 at Currie, and were actually leading 33-16 before Currie sneaked a couple of tries late on. Our tries came from Sean Murchie, Adam Howie (2), Fraser Morrison and Rob Patterson, with Rob adding four conversions.
Keep an eye on the website over the next few days for reports and photos from these games.
The school 1st XV also played their part, beating Heriot’s 51-0 that morning – well done to them and all those who donned the red, black and gold this weekend!
