Take-Away Rugby Sunday
Order your favourite take away to deliver at the clubhouse or collect on the way and join us this Sunday for Scotland v Tonga.
With a 4:45pm kick off, why worry about cooking during the big game. Bring your family and friends, relax with the game on 3 screens and tuck into your take away cheering on Scotland.
Plates and Cutlery provided!
Penicuik 40 – 25 Corstorphine
Tries : Sprott, Ketchen (3), Malone, Isikeli
Con : Haynes (5),
This was a tight game which the score line doesn’t reflect, and it was 2 late tries from Ketchen and Isikeli that made the difference.
The squad was on the back foot before the game with the late (very late) withdrawal of Di Rollo & Crawford. Mitchell and Randall stepped up from the bench to cover.
A fairly even start seen Corstorphine 8-7 ahead following a Sprott try. Steven Ketchen added a 2nd to make it 14-11 before Corstorphine intercepted to run in and make it 14-18. After missing the open league games of the season, 1xv captain Oscar Malone finally turned up to make it 21-18. Ketchen got his 2nd of the afternoon before half time to extend the margin.
Corstorphine scored after the 2nd half restart to close the score to 26-25. A Ketchen hatrick pushed Penicuik further ahead before Isi crossed over to extend the score to 40-25.
A 3rd bonus point win on the bounce is great rewards for a squad working hard for each other and finally some continuity in selection.
This weekend the team travel to Almond Park Livingston, who went down last weekend 21-12 at Hawick Quins.
kick off is 3pm
To meet this weeks team, play the video below –
The 2xv faced Boroughmuir 2xv last Sat, what started a tight game soon opened up following an injury to defensive captain Sam Murray. The Penicuik bench was emptied shortly after leaving the team with 14 following a series of injuries. The young Boroughmuir team soon ran riot.
This week the 2xv welcome Currie 3xv to Montgomery Park for a 3pm ko.
