U16s v Edinburgh Academy (Mar19)

U16s Roll On

Linlithgow  62 – 0  Edinburgh Academy

Saturday 02 March 2019

The Young Reds’ U16’s took on Edinburgh Academy down on the bottom pitch and emerged convincing winners, 62-0.

Both sides had squads of 17 players, but Linlithgow opened with the first of 10 tries and six conversions after 6 minutes. Some strong play up front, keeping the ball alive through numerous phases of play, resulted in Lewis going over for the first of his 4 tries. Ewan claimed a hat-trick of tries with Rory, Callum M and Cammy all getting one each. Gregor converted the first try, but Cammy took over and kicked a further five.

The Young Reds played extremely well linking all players with some great running rugby. The game was closed out 10 minutes early at Edinburgh Academy’s request. Thanks to all the supporters – especially the injured players who still turned up to support the squad.
