Reds Lose Out to “Golden Try’ in Extra Time
Saturday 28 April 2019
The Reds closed off their season in Edinburgh at the annual Leith 7s Tournament on Saturday 27 April. After a close defeat to National League side Murrayfield Wanderers in the first round of the main tournament, they went on to beat Edinburgh Napier University in the quarter-final of the Bowl competition, taking them through to a semi-final against the host club, Leith. The Reds edged a cracking match 24-22, however the referee (who is the final arbiter) had the score as 22-22 and so extra-time was played, with the host team scoring the ‘golden try’ to win and progress to the final. A slightly disappointing end to the season, but well done to Leith in their own 7s tournament.
