Penicuik were instantly on the attack and Lismore struggled to contain the forwards’ interplay around the edge of the ruck, they failed to roll away quickly enough resulting in a first penalty award within 90 seconds of the start. Liddle opted for a shot at goal, but pushed the ball wide and to the right. There followed a period of intense Penicuik pressure which eventually resulted in a second infringement. This time the kick was good for a 3-0 lead.
