Hamilton v Boroughmuir 2.12.17
Improved Hamilton performance still not enough to overcome Boroughmuir
Hamilton welcomed Boroughmuir to Laigh Bent knowing that they could be in for a tough afternoon having been comprehensively beaten the last time both teams met.
The match kicked off in front of a decent sized crowd and Boroughmuir were soon scoring their first try after some weak tacking in the middle by Hamilton. It was clear that Boroughmuir were better organised both in defence and attack where they found space out wide with accurate passes that forced the receiver to run onto the ball. Hamilton improved their defence around the rucks forcing the visitors to play in the wide channels.
Despite Boroughmuir winning the game Hamilton showed that when they got the ball wide scoring opportunitys presented themselves and Callum Harris
took his opportunities, scoring twice after beating his opponent for pace.
Hamilton were bullied throughout the game with Boroughmuir being more committed and aggressive in the contact area.
Despite the deafeat Hamilton showed enough in defence and attack to suggest that they have improved since the previous meeting of the two teams, and if they can continue to show that improvement they will get closer to Boroughmuir next season.
