FOSROC Super6 Review of Round 10

FOSROC Super6 Review of Round 10

The last regular round of fixtures in the FOSROC Super6 Championship took place this weekend, here's how they went.

Friday 14 October: Watsonians v Heriot’s

The hosts went ahead just after 10 minutes of play when full-back Dom Coetzer put in a storming run changing direction to power over the try line. 

Heriot’s started to build their attack in the second quarter and were rewarded when Sam Wallace stretched out and secured them a try with Bruce Houston converting to take the lead. 

On the half-hour mark Watsonians went ahead once more when Joe Reynolds put in a neat grubber kick which was collected by Angus Guthrie. 

Watsonians started to build once again and once the breakdown looked as if it couldn’t do much more scrum-half Murray Scott snipped round the side and secured it down for their third try which was converted by Jason Baggott. 

HALF-TIME: Watsonians 17-7 Heriot’s Rugby

Three minutes into the second half Scott earned himself another after running a lovely supporting line for Baggott who has made a break up-field. 

Near on the hour mark Watsonians had a scrum in the middle of the park, they made their way up to the 22, recycled the ball and Baggot put in a neat grubber which Lomond McPherson then collected and dotted down, with Baggott adding the extras on offer. 

Heriot’s got on the scoresheet once again through Sam Wallace thanks to a diving maul which got going, converted by Houston. 

With only 10 minutes left to go Nyle Godsmark made a storming run up field, he was brought down short by the ball was recycled and replacement hooker youthful Elliot Young ran in another for the Nails which Houtson converted.

A few minutes later Sam Derrick finished off a lovely team try with the extra two pointed added by Colvine. 

Into the second quarter the Knights pulled ahead with a third try when prop Mike Mbaud.

Saturday 15 October: Boroughmuir Bears v Ayrshire Bulls

A torrential downpour just before the teams ran out created difficult conditions for all and it took a good 15 minutes for game to clean up and get going.

Alex McGuire tried to earn the Bulls their first try of the match by stretching over the line, but the try was not awarded. Referee Michael Todd took it back to an earlier penalty.

Bulls Cam Jones almost made the try again but was held up by a relentless Bears defence. A goal line drop out was awarded to the Bears who kicked it well towards the halfway line.

After the Bulls are driven out of play, the Bears took their line out in their own 22. However, a poorly judged throw touched the tips of the Bears’ fingers and was caught by an attentive Alex McGuire who dived over the line. Will Hunt got full points.

Bulls picked up the momentum and a wide pass out to Elias Caven on the wing earned the visitors their second try. Conversion was missed.

Not so long after, Will Hunt sliced through the Bears defence and added another 5 points to the Bulls score board. Extras were added by the try scorer himself.

The Bears showed their home crowd what they’re made of by responding quickly and adding their first try thanks to Andrew McLean. Jack Bergin added the extras.

HALF-TIME: Boroughmuir Bears 7-19 Ayrshire Bulls 

The Bears kicked off the second half in style by keeping the dominant attack in the Bulls 22 and earning a try thanks to Adam Scott. The try scorer got the extras.

Bears no.14 Cameron Meagher was shown a yellow card bringing the home team down to 14 men.

There was another try attempt from the Bulls but it was held up by a hardy Bears defence.

However, it was a quick make up for the Bulls – Captain Blair MacPherson ploughed through Bears defence and earned the bonus point try for the visitors. Will Hunt continued his kicking success.

There was absolutely no stopping Elias Caven who dodged all defence and bagged his second try right under the posts. Conversion made by Richie Simpson.

A tough Bulls maul almost earned them another try under the posts but it was held up by the Bears.

Bulls’ Jordan Lenac was shown a yellow card for a deliberate knock on.

A line out for the Bears worked in their favour as Josh King dotted the ball over the line in the last minute of play. Adam Scott made the extras.
