Dalkeith/Penicuik U/15 27

Portobello 20

Dalkeith & Penicuik RFC (D-P) joint U/15 side faced Portobello in the final of their age group Bowl Competition at Meggetland on Sunday.

The match started very tentatively with both sets of boys clearly feeling the enormity of their first cup final. D-P really took the match by the scruff of the neck and were all over Porty, with a couple of high tackles not helping the Edinburgh club’s cause.

Before long, D-P took advantage of the Porty defence sleeping to take a 27-13 lead.
