Hamilton v Boroughmuir 25/11/18

Young Bulls taken positives from defeat

Hamilton welcomed table toppers Boroughmuir to Leigh Bent and new that if they were to take anything from the match that they would have to improve on the excellent form they had shown in recent matches.

In the first fifteen minutes of the game Boroughmuir showed why they are undefeated this season scoring three tries and converting two of them. The first came as a result of a good line break from their number 8 coupled with some weak tackling from Hamilton, and a few minutes alter after a Hamilton knock on good quick crisp passing allowed their 14 to run in unopposed. For the third try Boroughmuir put Hamilton under pressure with their line speed and counter rucking forcing the hosts to concede a penalty , from the resultant quick tap Hamilton didn't put any line press pressure on the backs allowing them to run at Hamilton, good tackles prevented the try but Boroughmuir quickly recycled the ball and this time the forwards did the damage with powerful bursts through the line and their number 4 found himself in space for a walk in try.

Hamilton didn't give up and over the next 10 minutes both teams had opportunity to score but a combination of dominant tackles and knock ons from both sides resulted in no try being scored. The defensive effort that Hamilton had put in started to show near the end of the first half, as they once again started to fall off tackles and allowed the visitors to have overlaps on every attack, Boroughmuir were quick to exploit these advantages and ran in four tries in quick succession. Half time was warmly welcomed by the Hamilton players.

Both teams made a few substitutions at half time and not long after the restart it looked as though Boroughmuir would dominate the second half scoreboard, their loose head prop running a strong inside line and bursting through the Hamilton line to continue the scoring for Boroughmuir. Despite the scoreline Hamilton continued to apply pressure to Boroughmuir and finally began to plait a structure that they have been working on in recent weeks. From a penalty Hamilton took a quick tap and passed the ball wide, full back Joa Fairweather sprinted onto the ball and got over the gain line, his pace and evasive run taking him clear from the Boroughmuir defence to score Hamiltons first try of the day.

The young Bulls took great spirit from this and 5 minutes later were celebrating once more after another quick tap penalty prevented Boroughmuir from getting their defence set allowing Jamie Thorpe to make good yards before off loading to his outside centre Callum Ferrie who finished the move by going over the line, conversion by Lewis Robertson.

Hamilton had to defend as Boroughmuir came back at them but the young Bulls were able to hold out and were awarded a scrum on their own 5 meter line. Euan Brannan, playing at 8 this week, picked the ball up from the back of the scrum and ran down field bursting through a few tackles and nearly making it the whole length of the pitch before being stopped in his tracks. Hamilton were there in support and secured the ball and were able to pass it away from contact where Lewis Mooney backed himself against the scrum half to score the final try of the game, conversion by Lewis Robertson

Hamilton were obviously happier with their second half performance and although out scoring their opponents during that time were never able to dominate the way Boroughmuir did in the first half.

A special mention to Hamilton First XV player Hugo Crush who refereed the match.
