Rugby – Seven Try Cup Win for 1st XV

Saturday 26th October

The 1st XV produced their best form of the season to defeat unbeaten NL2 league leaders Dumfries by the convincing margin of 43 – 22 in the SRU’s National League Cup at Inverleith a week after a league match against the same opponents was cancelled due to a waterlogged pitch.

Three first half tries took Stew Mel into a 19-3 lead and a further two early in the second half took the margin to 31-3 as the team continued to delight the sizable home support. Dumfries scored three tries in reply thereafter but never threatened the lead as Stew Mel added a further two of their own in between times. Altogether seven tries and four conversions in a great performance.
