Your News Aberdeen Grammar 48 - Hawick 7

The Greens made the long haul to Aberdeen Grammar on Saturday as Premier Two

league leaders with maximum points from the first three games.

Star centre, John Coutts, had a tummy bug and unfortunately could not

travel. His place was taken by Colin Murray with Michael Graham being added

to the bench.

The winning start was brought to an abrupt halt with a 48-17 defeat and,

more worryingly, losing the try count 7 tries to 3.

The Greens opened the scoring when flanker Ross Gibson charged down a

clearance kick to score. However, the home side took complete control and

led 24-5 at the interval, poor first time tackling by the Greens made it

easier for Grammar.

Hawick's try scorers in the second half were Colin Murray and Bruce McNeil

with Neil Renwick converting one.

Though well beaten the Greens had a good finish to the game and should

probably have had a bonus point for a fourth try but they were kept out by a

solid defence.

The whole squad will have to focus this week for the game with Gala who

pushed Stirling County all the way on Saturday.
