Bonus Point Wins for Both
Reds 1s and 2s

Another good day at the office as both teams secured bonus point victories in league matches on Saturday 23 January.  This came on the back of a win for the u18 against Ross High School in the morning.

Reds  25 –  19 Duns

There was a hat-trick on his debut for young wing Cammy Walker, who also walked off with the man-of-the-match award!  Chris Archer, playing against his old team, notched the fourth try and Jack Frame slotted one conversion and one penalty to complete the scoring.  This result gives the Reds their eight win of the season (out of 10 played) and takes them back up to third in the table.

Linlithgow 2s  34 – 7  Edin Northern 2s

Following a dour first half, which saw the Reds go in to the break 7-5 down, the 2s exploded into action in the second half, running in a further 5 tries to add to their first half score.  Rory McAdam claimed a fine brace.  The Reds 2s have now got 8 wins from 14 matches and have 4 games left to play in the league this season – see elsewhere on homepage.

Red Stags Turn On Style in Second Half

Red Stags u16  47 – 5  Ross High u16

With a narrow 2 point lead at half time the U16s turned on the style in the second period.  This  included a team try where they kept the ball alive and went the length of the pitch on the last play to run out clear winners.

Wee Reds Minis Get Games at Last after Two Months!

Last Sunday, the Wee Reds travelled through to Edinburgh to play their first matches since early November.  Their hosts, RHC Cougars, had also invited Boroughmuir Minis, so there was plenty of rugby played.  Thanks to all the training sessions in the Indoor Training Centre, during the wet weather, they were well drilled and the day was a success.
