Penicuik allowed themselves to be bullied by a larger, bigger Dalkeith side who at half time were 27-0 and a rout on the cards. With the wind at their backs, Penicuik started to play some ball in the 2nd half, but were pushing too hard leading to mistakes. A Malone try reduced the gap to 27 – 5, before Dalkeith increased their lead to 51-5.
3 further tries, 2 from Luke Randall and another from Steven Ketchen closed the game at 51-29. The try bonus point the only reward to take from the game which ensures Penicuik finished the afternoon top of the league 1 point ahead of Dalkeith and todays guests Dunbar.
Dunbar arrive at Montgomery Park after a strong 43-19 win at home to Hawick Linden last time out, their only defeat this season was also to Dalkeith 7-20 back in September.
Both sides will be chasing a win with bonus points as 3rd place Dalkeith have had their game against Duns cancelled due to insufficient players from Duns
This week DoR Mark Blair has a larger squad to chose from due to number players away at Ross Liddle’s wedding last Saturday. At time of print there are still a couple TBC positions, and no doubt Blairso is currently on the phone calling up the last recruits.
