CAPITAL RUGBY

Club games for Sat 02 Oct 2004



In Premier 1, the Meggetland derby saw hosts Boroughmuir thrash neighbours Watsonians by 41-3. 'Muir ran in 7 tries, including braces for Scott Hadden and James Reilly.

Currie also recorded a win, by beating Aberdeen GSFP by 30-21. Former Gunner David Officer got one of the four tries, whilst backup squad member Ben Cairns claimed another.

Heriots crashed to a 25-5 defeat away to GHA, their points coming from a try by flanker Jonathan White.

And the shocks continued, with league leaders Melrose tumbling to a 36-10 defeat away to league new boys Biggar. Biggar outscored Melrose by 4 tries to 1, and were leading 20-0 half an hour into the game.

In the other games, Hawick recorded their first win of the season by beating Ayr 31-19 at Mansfield Park, whilst Glasgow Hawks go top of the table courtesy of a 29-24 defeat of Gala at Netherdale.

Over in Premier 2, Stirling County consolidated their position at the top of the league by beating Kirkcaldy 3-62 at Beveridge Park. This is the second week in a row that County have put more than 60 points past their opponents, and gives them a massive points differential.

2nd placed Stewarts-Melville FP also won handsomely, beating Dundee HSFP by 43-28.

In the other matches, Edinburgh Accies beat Peebles by 23-11 at Inverleith, Jed-Forest won away at Kelso by 11-34, Murrayfield Wanderers suffered a narrow 27-32 loss to Haddington and Selkirk beat Berwick 26-13.

In Premier 3, Hillhead/Jordanhill stay top despite surrendering their unbeaten record to capital side RHC. RHC recorded a fine 32-26 victory away from home.

2nd placed Livingston also lost on the road, going down 18-12 to Dunfermline at McKane Park. This lifts Dunfermline into 3rd place, equal on points with Livingston.

In the other matches, West of Scotland beat Cambusland 19-26, Cartha Queens Park recorded a 29-22 victory over East Kilbride, Grangemouth slumped to a 45-8 loss to Edinburgh University and Preston Lodge beat Musselburgh 22-12.



The other capital team at home on Saturday is Currie, who welcome Aberdeen GSFP to Malleny Park. Currie have a 1 point advantage over their visitors, and it's a must-win game for both clubs.

2nd placed Heriots travel to Braidholm to play GHA. The Edinburgh club have a 10 point advantage over their hosts, but GHA shouldn't be underestimated.

In the other matches, Hawick meet Ayr at Mansfield Park for what will surely be a tough encounter. Gala host 3rd placed Glasgow Hawks at Netherdale and Biggar meet league leaders Melrose at Hartreemill.

In Premier 2, league leaders Stirling County travel to Beveridge Park to play Kirkcaldy. County hold a massive 20 point advantage over the 2nd bottom Blues side.

2nd placed Stewarts-Melville FP host Dundee HSFP at Inverleith, whilst Edinburgh Accies host Peebles at Raeburn Place. Murrayfield Wanders meet Haddington on the back pitches at Murrayfield (so there's a choice of two game!) and Selkirk play Berwick at Philiphaugh.

In Premier 3, league leaders Hillhead Jordanhill host RHC at Hughenden (good thing Glasgow are away to the Ospreys!) whilst 2nd placed Livingston travel to McKane park to meet Dunfermline.

Cartha Queens Park meet East Kilbride at Dumbreck whilst Grangemouth travel to Peffermill to play Edinburgh University, and Cambuslang host West of Scotland at Coats Park.
