Hamilton Rugby Club 19 v Perthshire Rugby 50
By Tom Mooney
Hamilton fail to find the killer pass
The rain held off on a breezy day at the Bent, the Bulls buoyant from their win last week unfortunately didn't continue where they left off at Stirling and found themselves three tries down after the first 11 minutes.
Primarily this was due to not putting pressure on the Perth defence and allowing ease of turn over ball at the breakdown.
Euan Brannan scored a try which was converted by Lewis Roberston after some good forward play and ball distribution.
Perth came straight back at the Bulls from the restart and missed tackles allowed Perth an easy try.
The second half started with Perth scoring two tries again lack of pressure by the Bulls defence and not closing the space were the main reasons.
The Bulls heads didn't go down and played some good rugby moving the ball out wide,resetting and going through the phases resulting in Andrew Mclaughlin going over the line for a try converted by Calum Wilson.
Perth came straight back and the Bulls were their own enemy with missed tackles and allowing Perth to attack at paceresulting in a Perth try.
Aaron Burgess playing at centre used his strength to score a try with a few minutes to play.
Perth unfortunately scored straight from the restart and the game finished
Hamilton 19 Perth 50.
The scoreline flattered Perth, the Bulls played some good Rugby but not making the final pass when there was space to attack cost the team possibly 3 or 4 good try scoring opportunities.
Back to the Shogun Conference next week at Boroughmuir.
