S1 at Fettes

S1s Win Big Against Trinity Academy on Saturday 

Saturday 29 September 2018

Boys put on a really good team display taking an inexperienced Trinity Academy team apart 10 tries to nil.  Highlights were Big Euan F playing his first game and Cameron playing his best game so far with great runs and brilliant offloads in the tackle.  We then mixed the teams up to play a really good friendly game which was far more challenging and entertaining for both teams.

S1s Just Pipped in Final at Fettes Tournament on Sunday

Sunday 30 September 2018

Great day out at the 7s rugby tournament at Fettes.  Great wins against Stewart Melville, Fettes B and Merchiston to get to the final against Fettes A.  We played the better team rugby, but the tall athletic Fettes winger got them a couple of powerful breakaway tries. Linlithgow hit back with 2 tries and should have had another, but with a missed conversion the game went to Fettes 8-7 in a great game.  The boys were fantastic and the loved the Hogwarts setting at Fettes.  Powerful forward runs from Johnny, Jack, Fraser and Oogs. Great back play from Reece, Jake, Daniel, Ruan and Caiden.  My outstanding moment was Euan J’s zig zag break through most of the Merchiston side over 40 yds which he just managed to get over the line (followed by a justified long lie down to recover from his exertions).
