Weekend Sport – Sat 3rd Nov. Rugby – 1st XV return to winning ways / Golf

Rugby:     Stewart’s Melville RFC     87     Howe of Fife    7

After two weeks on the road coupled with a couple of disappointing results the 1st XV were back on familiar territory and facing a Howe of Fife team with no bench to call on due to a catalogue of injured players which seems to affect all teams those days.   With the flow of the game going against them Howe of Fife were reduced to 13 players on the field before the first half was done and the score inevitably mounted before proceedings were brought to an early conclusion after about 70 minutes.   The result was a welcome boost to the team’s league position.  Next week its a visit to mid table Falkirk.

Golf:   Grant Forrest’s progress on European Golf’s Challenge Tour has been followed with interest.   A top ten finish in the tour’s final event of the season secured him seventh place in the end of season rankings and along with three other Scots in the top fifteen a place on the full European Tour next season which kicks off with five events before Christmas.   We all look forward to seeing him achieving further successes in his golf career.
