Saturday 12th October
The 1st XV suffered a second league defeat of the season at Preston Lodge on Saturday losing by 25-19 in a game where they performed someway below expectations and after being helped into a half-time lead somewhat against the run of play by two PL errors leading to an interception try and a second when a defensive catch was missed under no pressure. PL were less gratuitous in the second half turning the match in their favour although some late Stew Mel pressure might have produced another score to close the gap.
This defeat leaves the team in sixth place on 18 points, five behind second placed Peebles. Next opponents Dumfries top the league with six wins out of six and 29 league points.
