Boroughmuir Day was slightly hampered with the weather closing in and we were sorry that most of the activities planned for the day could not happen.
Heriots were the first to put aside the conditions of the day to produce a dominant performance at Meggetland yesterday, rolling Boroughmuir Rugby with a 36-3 win.
Boroughmuir played well in patches throughout the game but Heriots with the stronger forward pack, used the momentum to take control and upset any platform Muir was trying to build.
Core leadership was again needed from the senior members of the team and the likes of Andy Rose, Sam Johnson and Ian Moody got through a power of work and led from the front.
Those of the players that came up to the club house after the game spoke to the members about their disappointment but still had high confidence in the remaining games and will put this down to difficult conditions rather than a step back in their plans for the season.
Heriots were the better team on the day, displaying a real energy that has launched them to the top of the table this season. Former Boroughmuir and now Heriots Head Coach Phil Smith, again making the right strategic decisions to keep his side’s containment of Muir’s offensive.
With Edinburgh Accies beating 2nd place position Ayr, this put Boroughmuir Rugby in the danger zone with only a few games to play. Behind the scenes the coaches and management will be working recover from this loss and will be focusing on the next game against Ayr RFC next weekend.
