Walker And Fraser Buoyed By Watsonian Support
Despite a large Watsonians support in the crowd on Sunday near Paris, Sarah-Louise Walker and Louise Fraser could not help Scotland’s women to record a victory against a strong home side. The Scots led 10-0 early on but the French took control in the second half, using the wind to their advantage to win 18-10 in Scotland captain Donna Kennedy’s 100th international appearance. A number of the Watsonians who had travelled to Paris for the weekend – Mary Pat Tierney, Sara Mears, Barb Wilson, Ruth Cranston, Pam Woodman, Sheena Buchanan, Karen ‘KT’ Taylor, Clare Murray and your correspondent – had made the journey to the ground to cheer on the Scots, some feeling slightly worse than others following the previous night’s festivities. Meanwhile, Scotland under-20s completed a poor Six Nations with a 56-10 loss in France on Friday night. All players with a connection to Myreside got a run out at some stage.
