Match report for the 1st XV

Match Date: Sat 20th Sep 2014

PHYSICALLY CHALLENGED "HILLS" STRUGGLE


Hillhead/Jordanhill 5pts Kelso 38pts


In one way, this was a game of two halves with the score on forty minutes being thirty one points to nil in favour of Kelso, but on conclusion finding Kelso having added only a single converted try. In another way, however, it was a game involving two teams of contrasting physicality. Kelso's second rowers, messrs Rowlandson and Seed, each exceeded two metres in height with the former weighing in at over 140kg. By any standards that is a lot of Border beef and with several other well nourished individuals in the opposition pack the "Hills" forwards were on limited first phase rations for the whole of the game with the line out being almost a no go area. ..

?EARLY "HILLS" PROMISE FADES


Hillhead/Jordanhill 2nd 23pts Cartha QP 2nd 39pts


For the first twenty five minutes of this 2nd XV game played on the verdant main pitch at Hughenden, "Hills" scrum half and backs coach, Stuart Torbett, produced a master class in how to convert chances offered by a Cartha side intent on giving away penalties like free gifts at a supermarket promotion. Two close range penalties were converted, and a try quickly followed an incisive David Paterson break. This was also converted and after twenty five minutes "Hills" 2nd XV were thirteen points up. The younger and fitter Cartha QP 2nd XV came back into the game, however, finding some gaps in the "Hills" cover defence to lead by fifteen points to thirteen approaching half time, but second rower, Don McAdam, scored from close range with Torbett again converting to give the home team a five points margin at the interval. ..
