Cougars mauled by Lasswade

Lasswade S2s 36, Royal High Cougars 11

Lasswade S2s were playing their first home game of the season against Royal High Cougars.

The home side, in their new strips, kicked off with the wind in their favour and within only a few minutes centre Matthew Duffy put the first points on the score board with a try in the corner.

Lasswade won a lineout with No8 Cameron Watt getting the ball passed it along the line to find Scott Muir on the wing, who ran in Lasswade’s second try under the posts making it easy for Harry Gladstone to convert.

Lasswade won a scrum near the halfway line and Duffy ran in for his second try. Martin Jones converted. Soon S Muir ran from his own 22 and scored his second try under the posts.
