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 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.
