Dalkeith welcomed Earlston RFC to King’s Park for this East League 2 fixture. The visitors had also started their league campaign well and the home side expected a tough test against the Borderers.
Earlston kicked off up the hill and came out of the blocks apace, putting Dalkeith under immediate pressure. It was not long before Dalkeith opened the scoring through several good phases of interplay and then good hands releasing Simpson for the opening try, Clugston converted for an early 7-0 lead.
