Winning start for Lasswade

Lasswade Under 15s travelled to Royal High to play their first league game of the new season.

The boys were told to make a strong start, and they did. Gladstone kicked off with a lovely placed kick for his teamates to charge toward the home side.

The RHC side seemed to panic a little, allowing Scott Muir to gather the ball from a lucky bounce.

‘Swade piled on the pressure and camped in the home side’s 22 until eventually Matthew Duffy ran wide and scored in the corner. Lasswade were awarded a penalty in RHC’s 22, and quick-thinking Shaun Roach ran through the defence to score a lovely try.
