After two defeats in a row, Heriots & Currie,Lasswade wanted to start the second half of the season with a positive attitude.
The team was at full strength so which was good as subs were required!Both teams were making a lot of mistakes especially with knock ons, probably due to frozen fingers.
Fortunately the visitors were strong in the scrums, which has let them down in the past. Lasswade camped in the Dunbar half for most of the first half but couldn’t finish, until they were awarded a penalty five metres out, after practising such an occurrence at training with forwards coach Rory McKenzie, let.
Sam Greens barged over the line to get the first points of the day on the board just before halftime.
After a few changes through injury, Laswade had to settle as a few boys were in different positions.
With the backs working the ball up the field the stand off was in touch, so it was a lineout for the homeside. Cameron Hardman, who was impressive the whole game, won the ball in the air and Paul Wilson charged through the ruck to touch down over the line. Martin Jones converted.
Shaun Roache tucked the ball in tight and headed for the line to score a try. The forwards were playing well and, with another training move, Wilson made the right call from a lineout, to allow Greens to go in for his second try.
Dunbar looked like they were starting to tire and Lasswade took advantage.
Gathering the ball deep in their 22. Dunbar kicked a long kick deep into the Lasswade half. Greens was adjusting his boots when he turned, looked up and the ball dropped into his hands.
He put his head down and nothing was going to stop him from scoring a great try for his hatrick. That was the final score of the day.
