2s Roll On with Win 16

Kev Wilson directed operations brilliantly for 2s

Inverleith 8 – 33 Linlithgow

With the match switched to Arboretum because Mains Park was unplayable and with their opponents strengthened as their 1s match was off, the Reds 2s switched to plan B – territory and kicking penalties. Kev Wilson directed operations brilliantly from stand-off and kicked 4 first-half penalties to make it 12-0 at half-time.

Three second-half tries, a brace from James Timlin and a solo effort from Drew Sommerville, all converted by Wilson, were enough to see the Reds 2s comfortably home.

Reds Give League Leaders
Hawick Quins a Fright

Linlithgow  12 – 26  Hawick Quins

Despite missing over a half a dozen key players, this relatively inexperienced Reds’ team played some cracking rugby, taking the game to the League leaders. There were tries from Andrew Archer and Ross Tulloch and man-of-the-match Cammy Walker came close on a couple of occasions. A last minute score for Quins, against the run of play, resulted in a score that flattered the visitors.

Reds 2s Flying High

Forrester 2s  12 – 36  Linlithgow 2s

The young Reds’ 2s continued their winning ways with a cracking away win against the second placed team in the league. They scored 5 tries (photo shows Ally Walker scoring his try), two through Kyle Dunlop playing his first match of the season after a long injury lay off. The 2s have now played 15, won 15 and lead the table with 74 points.

Reds U15s Start the Year with a Fine Win

Linlithgow u15  44 – 26  Bigger u15

On Sunday, the u15s took on Biggar at Mains Park for their first match of 2018. This turned out to be a close and competitive match, with the Reds a bit slow to get back into the groove. Overturning a first half deficit, the young Reds ran out 44-26 winners, with tries from Aaron (3), Gregory (2), Callum R, Aiden and Jamie.

Well done to both teams in a hard fought game.

Two Late Tries Seal Ross Win

Ross High 35 – 21 Linlithgow

In a thoroughly entertaining match, Ross High came out on top in this second round of the BT Edinburgh SHIELD, with two late tries to seal the win. The Reds’ tries came from Euan Mochrie (pictured above), Neil Lockhart and Rab Cairns, with Cairns kicking three conversions.

Young Reds Serve Up Excellent
Fayre on Boxing Day

Reds u21  0 – 19  Reds o21

Although there was snow on the ground, the pitch underneath was soft and so the annual Boxing Day match went ahead on Tuesday. The Young Reds served up some cracking fare to entertain the crowd and, in a highly and closely contested match, the over 21s ran out winners.
