S2s v Currie
The S2s welcomed Currie to Meggetland in what proved to be a keenly fought contest. Boroughmuir started well with some strong forward play and had Currie under pressure initially but strong tackling meant they were unable to break through the Currie defence. Quick defensive line speed meant the the home backs had little time to work with the ball and after ten minutes Currie were able to convert the pressure with two trys in quick succession following defensive lapses. What followed was a good game of rugby with Currie scoring two further trys to Boroughmuirs one. Although on the back foot in the scrum the Muir' pack gave a good account of themselves in the loose. Despite the loss there was a good
Strong performances from Lee and Finlay and man of the match was Jack F.
Final score, Boroughmuir 3 - 15 Currie
S1s v Currie
Perfect conditions at Meggetland for the visit of Currie S1's. Boroughmuir started brightly, good handling gave us steady progress up the pitch until we got well in to the Currie 22. Some great defence prevented several Boroughmuir scores and white line panic about set in as we just couldn't get the ball across the try line. Eventually some great work by Lewis, followed by good hands by Finlay D put Finlay A in the corner. A first half dominated by Boroughmuir and 3-0 in front.
In the 2nd half early Boroughmuir pressure was soaked up by Currie before they started to make some good breaks and were unlucky not to score which was a credit to the Boroughmuir defence. From a scrum on the Currie 22 Boroughmuir spread the ball wide along the backline and the result was a great score by Peter. There was just enough time left for Currie to have another sorte into the Boroughmuir 22 and for a turnover to result in a Boroughmuir surge upfield.
Thanks to Currie for agreeing to switch the fixture to Meggetland so the S1 squad could get along to Murrayfield to raise some funds for their tour.
Final score, Boroughmuir 6 - 0 Currie
