Dumfries Saints S1/2 Development Team had an away trip to Bishopton RFC on Sunday for a game against a mixed Bishopton/Clydebank team. It was the first game with the boys from S1 having moved up from the Mini’s.
Bishbank kicked off and straight away Captain Gavin Wilson caught the ball and ran in to score a try. Andrew McMorrin then kicked the first of his 5 convertions. Gavin went on to score twice in this half, one from the base of the scrum and the other from our own 22. Nathan Brown powered over the line after a pick and go from a line out. Andrew crossed the line after a powerfull run and two of his trade mark dummy passes. After a great pass from scrum half Jack Roberts, Scott McLellan scored under the posts. BJ Cowley sprinted up the line to score with the last play of the half.
The second half saw no let up from the boys. BJ scored after a bulldozing run from Jack. New S1 boys Andrew Neill and Finlay McMaster combined well in mid field with Finlay scoring his first try. Elliot Gorman bagged a brace of tries. Again Jack was like a terrier dog over turning the ball twice to set up Elliot’s tries. Gavin rounded off the day with another double. Great passing from Arron and Keir set him up for darting runs to the line. Bishbank scored late in the game. The final score 66 -6.
