U9 Rugby v Merchiston

 Wednesday 21st Febuary 2018

On Wednesday the Under 9 squad travelled up to Edinburgh to play
Merchiston in what turned out to be a very entertaining game of rugby. Playing on a larger pitch than normal St Marys played some great running rugby using the extra width to their advantage scoring 6 tries in the first half with our hosts scoring 3 in reply. The second half was even better with St Marys coming out on top by 5 tries to 1 making the final score 11-4.  Some fine passing, good rucking and strong running contributed to this all-round performance which allowed all squad members to get plenty of game time.


There is not a man of the match this week! There are eight as all players played an important part in this very good team performance.
Try scorers:
Blair Adamson 1, Nick Jackson 3, Ewan Gibson 2, Tom Dolby 5.
In true sporting fashion for a final 5 minutes St Marys and Merchiston mixed the teams up with the greens coming out with 1-0 victory.
Well done to all involved and thanks again to Merchiston for hosting us plus all the parents for their support and encouragement.
Ian G Millar
U9 Coach
