Boroughmuir 1st XV v Aberdeen Grammar

'Muir heartbreak in one point loss 26 -27

03 November 2012
Boroughmuir v Aberdeen



Sean Lineen was the guest speaker at the pre match lunch ahead of this game. Part of his speech touched on the statistical analysis that 40% of tries scored in rugby come from counter attacking and the rest are scored with less than 6 passes.
Aberdeen showed that effective counter attacking and basic ball handling skills will break down a defensive line and effectively open gaps for attackers to run at.

Boroughmuir’s strength was seen in their forwards at set pieces with a dominate display in the scrums, at times, producing turn over ball. Where they showed strength in one area they failed to capitalise and allow their talented back 3 in the backs to run with the freedom they deserve.

Boroughmuir has a strong, fast back 3 combination but to utilise those strengths means giving them enough time and space to do what they do so well. Flat positioning, average passing and the discipline of a Monk on a vow of silence culminated to missed opportunities to attack out wide.

The heart break was evident on everyone’s face at the final whistle.

The Boroughmuir 1sts never gave up and fought hard right up to the end. It is not the place the boys want to be going into the 3rd quarter of the season, but there is no lack of commitment or determination from the guys to turn this campaign around in the coming weeks.
