Dalkeith 30, Dunbar 30

It was the match of the day as East League 2’s only unbeaten teams Dalkeith and Dunbar met at King’s Park on Saturday.

The match lived up to its billing with a six-try encounter on offer.

Dalkeith made inroads from the kick-off and caught Dunbar offside after two minutes but Clugston was wide with the penalty attempt. Dalkeith were then penalised for hands in the ruck and Dunbar opened the scoring.

The home side formed a ruck on their own 22, but the ball shot out the side and with both Dalkeith defensive backs tied into the ruck, the Dunbar backs had the easiest of run ins for the opening try.
