Lasswade 27, Greenock Wanderers 0

Greenock and Lasswade were the closest of travelling companions during the past two seasons.

They met on six occasions in that time and although Lasswade won five of them, they were all hard fought with small winning margins.

Travelling to Lasswade Wanderers must have hoped rather than expected to end their recent losing streak at Hawthornden.

Any hopes were quickly dented as the hosts grabbed an early try and then completely dashed as they proceeded to run in four more before the break.

Lasswade needed just four minutes to set up a lineout 15m out and use it for one of their longer catch-and-drives with Billingham taking the honours.
