Rugby – Promotion prospects receive a boost with weekend results

Saturday 27th March 2022 – Stewart’s Melville RFC 33 Gordonians 10

Having achieved a relatively stress free win and five league points at Inverleith on Saturday the club received an important and hardly hoped for boost to its National League 2 promotion prospects when news came through that promotion rivals Dumfries had lost their match with their local rivals Newton Stewart by 27 – 20 thereby picking only one league point for a narrow defeat.

That leaves Dumfries on 68 league points to our 67 but with them having played a game more and only two to play against league leaders GHK on Saturday and Kirkcaldy on 9th April. Our three remaining matches are against Hamilton on Saturday (away), Glasgow Accies (9th April) and Kirkcaldy (16th April). Saturday’s match will be hard for both promotion contenders.
