RBS East Division 2 - Leith 3 -52 Dalkeith

Dalkeith took a penalty line out deep in the home 22 and after the Leith defence initially halted the Dalkeith maul towards the line, McMillan was on hand to take the pop pass and crashed over for the try early on, 0-5.

Leith restarted and Dalkeith then spilled the ball, allowing the home side their first foray into Dalkeith territory. After a couple of Leith pick and drives, Dalkeith gave up a penalty and Leith took the easy shot at goal, 3-5.

Leith then made a real mess of the next restart, giving Dalkeith a scrum in midfield near the home 22, from this Brady fed Clugston who passed back inside to Hamilton coming into the line at pace and the full back went under the posts untouched, Clugston converted for 12-3.
