Lasswade Win National League Championship

Lasswade won the National One League Championship in grand style on Saturday, dazzling the opponents and the crowd with 80 minutes of fast, fluent rugby, scoring 10 tries and inflicting the worst defeat in many a match on third-placed Garnock.

Each with one game still to play, Lasswade are seven points clear of Greenock Wanderers, who now must settle for the runners-up spot, but will be able to continue their rivalry in Premier 3.

The quest for honours is not over for the Hawthornden outfit, as they head to Murrayfield this Saturday to defend the National Shield title against National Two Champions Hawick YM.
