Euan making a break against Hortaleza

Dalkeith Rugby Club’s under 16s have returned from a successful trip to Madrid, picking up some impressive victories in the Spanish capital.

The boys will be hoping their wins against Getafe and Hortaleza will spur them on to success in the Edinburgh district under 16s league.

Previous Dalkeith tour matches in the area ended in heavy defeats but this time the team played three matches in three days and won them all.

The first match, played in warm Spanish sunshine, saw Dalkeith win a hard earned victory against a determined and larger Getafe side. The 58-0 score does not reflect the brave efforts of the local team but illustrates excellent team play from the Dalkeith side.
