Wee Reds P5s Win at Gala
Chris Paterson was on hand to present the trophy and medals to the victorious Wee Reds P5 team on Sunday at the Gala Tournament.
All the Wee Reds Minis’ teams performed with great credit in what was a very strong line up of clubs. The P5s has an outstanding tournament winning all three pool matches against Hawick, Melrose and West of Scotland, before disposing of Selkirk by 6 tries to 2 in the semi-final. The final saw a rematch with Hawick and in an enthralling and exciting game, the Wee Reds emerged victorious by 4 tries to 3 to claim the trophy and individual medals which were presented by Scotland’s all time leading points scorer Chris Paterson, who praised the team’s offloading skills.
Reds Retain Pond Plate at 7s
On Saturday, the Reds travelled through to Inverleith Park in Edinburgh to play in the Edinburgh Northern 7s Tournament – one of the biggest in Edinburgh. Two weeks ago, Jack Frame returned to action after a long-term injury and on Saturday, the Reds were also delighted to welcome back Mark Green and Gregor Stewart (pictured above), both of whom have been injured since before Christmas.
It took the squad a while to gel, but once they got going they clicked and they came away with the Pond Plate trophy, having beaten English guest side Millom from Cumbria in the semi-final before disposing of Liberton 46-7 in the final.
The Reds squad featured Andrew Whitelaw (captain), Sean Hagerty, Kieran Cochrane, Peter Millar, Lauchlan McCall, Gregor Stewart, Ross Tulloch, Murray Smith, Mark Green, Mark Caddle and Jack Frame.
Reds Claim Bonus Point Win
The Reds rounded off their BT East 1 league season with a bonus point victory over Forrester at Mains Park on Saturday. Jack Frame claimed a brace of tries and added a further 10 points from his boot, whilst there were also tries for Rab Cairns and Andrew Whitelaw. The result leaves the Reds on 49 points, with 9 wins from 20 games.
