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 Walkerscoring his try), two through Kyle Dunlopplaying 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.
