Kilmarnock 2’s 45:15 Saints 2’s
Saints 2’s travelled with a healthy squad of 19 players for this re-arranged Tennents West Res League 1 encounter with opponents who included a large number of first team players. The home side asserted their authority in the first half scoring 5 tries in total with Saints responding with a penalty from Andrew Little.
Saints competed much better in the second half scoring tries thro
Stuart Henderson and Jay Cusack the former converted by Little. Killie added two tries of their own to run out worthy winners in an enjoyable contest.
The 2s have 4 league fixtures remaining this season with a top 6 position in their grasp.
West Cup : Ardrossan 16’s 22pts : 34pts Saints16’s
Saints 1’s travel to Edinburgh tomorrow to play promotion rivals Stewart’s Melville 3.00pm KO. The winners will remain very much in the race with Highland for the second promotion spot but the losers would require an unlikely series of results to retain any interest in promotion.
The squad’s strength continues to be tested with Steele and Strain unavailable, Boyd suspended and late fitness tests planned for Miller and Scott. On the plus side Kerr will return to the squad along with Douglas, who sustained a shoulder injury against Peebles.
Also on Saturday Saints 2’s welcome league leaders Hills to Park Farm KO 3.00pm.
