P7 Minis Winners at Gala (April 18)

Wee Reds P7 Minis Win the Gala Tournament

Sunday 22 April 2018

The P7s had a fantastic day in the Gala tournament winning the Trophy for the first time and being the first non Borders team to win the Trophy in 10 years.

We had a great start with a tough 3 tries to nil win against the hosts Gala followed up by very good wins against Langholm and Peebles.  That put us through to a semi final against the other stronger Peebles team from the other group.  During this game Linlithgow hard tackling and counter rucking was winning us lots of ball.  From this the P7s were lethal with some of the best passing out of the tackle and support lines I have seen.

The final was against a very good (and so far unbeaten) Selkirk side who dominated their group with considerable skill and pace to pull teams apart.  Linlithgow defence was solid as a rock in the tackle giving Selkirk little chance to move the ball.  With ball in hand, the P7s continued with their powerful line breaks finishing off 3 tries with more superb support play to win the game.

A great day out in the Borders!
