Report by Scott Whiteside
Hamilton's 2XV left Inverleith earning the bonus point win over Stewart Melville in a 36-16 victory. With Stewart Melville close behind in second place in BT Reserve League National 2, Hamilton knew that they would have a hard game ahead of them if they wanted to keep the top spot in the league.
Stewart Melville started the match and immediately felt the pressure of a strong Hamilton team as they found themselves held in their own half. A striking line from Ross Jamieson left his opposite man falling at the wayside as he went deep into the 22. Stewart Melville held out with some strong defence and as Hamilton attempted to move the ball wide to finish in the corner, the crucial Hamilton pass found its self in the hands of Stew Mel's centre who ran 90 metres to score. The conversion was missed 5-0
