FRIDAY 10 JUNE: Watsonians v Stirling County
— FOSROC Super6 (@Super6Rugby) June 11, 2022
With just over 10 minutes gone in game Watsonians were first to get on the scoresheet. Full-back Harry Patterson collected the ball that had been kicked down field. He manages to get the ball away to Matt Currie who off-loaded to Lomond MacPherson who galloped in for the opening try of the game, converted by Lee Millar.
On the half hour mark scrum-half Sean Kennedy ran in a score for Stirling County after Marcus Holden made a break with Logan Trotter in support who passed out to Kennedy to secure the try, Holden then added the extra two points on offer.
HALF-TIME: Watsonians Rugby 7-7 Stirling County
When Stirling were penalised for hands in the ruck, Millar opted to extend the hosts lead through a fairly straightforward penalty for a man of his experience.
County took the lead for the first time in the game with 46 minutes gone thanks to an Angus Fraser try and another on the 56th minute by Stevie Hamilton (both converted by Holden) gave the visitors an 11 point lead with 20 minutes to go.
On the hour mark Watsonians got the maul moving and hooker Cal Davies secured the ball down over the try line, with Millar adding the conversion.
With the clock gone 80, Watsonians replacement Jason Baggott plucked the ball out of thin air to run in an intercepted try to earn Watsonians not on a seventh consecutive win, but the title of FOSROC Super6 Sprint Series Winners. (Millar added the extra two points on offer too!)

SATURDAY 11 JUNE: Heriot’s Rugby v Boroughmuir Bears
— FOSROC Super6 (@Super6Rugby) June 12, 2022
Inside the first 20 minutes of the game Bears got on the score sheet thanks to second row Ewan Stewart who powered over the whitewash from close range, due to the windy conditions the conversion was missed.
Moments later Heriot’s took the lead when openside flanker Iain Wilson was able to secure the ball down over the line at the back of the rolling maul, Bruce Houston was able to add the extra two points on offer.
Just over the half-hour mark the hosts extended their lead further, with simple one-up play from the line out scrum-half Murdo McAndrew passed it out to Charlie Savala who powered over the line. Houston added the conversion.
HALF-TIME: Heriot’s Rugby 15-5 Boroughmuir Bears
In the opening play of the second-half Iain Wilson scored this second of the match thanks to a turnover near the Bears try line by his team mates, Houston added the extra two points on offer.
He earned himself a hat-trick shortly after to give Heriot’s the try bonus point. On the hour mark Heriot’s were awarded a scrum not far from the Boroughmuir try line, captain Ruraridh Leishman controlled the ball well at the back of the line out. He then picked it up and dotted it down in the simplest of motions.
Moments later Sam Pecqueur worked hard to finish off a try in the corner which was unconverted.
Despite the heavy scoreline, Bears never gave up which was shown by their try in the last play of the game by winger Adam Scott who converted his own score.
