On a windy Sunday afternoon Hawthornden was host to a local derby.

Dalkeith travelled a few miles up the road to take on their Midlothian rivals for a tough game of rugby.

Lasswade put in a great performance from the whistle, stand off Harry Gladstone kicked into the Dalkeith half, a Dalkeith player took the ball well and did not expect prop Sam Greens to be on him so quick, Lasswade turned over and Greens drove over the line dragging a few tacklers with him.

Lasswade knew they would have to keep on top of the big Dalkeith pack. Gladstone was on form with his kicking and kept Dalkeith pinned in their own half.
