Highland V Hamilton
Thanks to Highland for having us on a bright, cold but lovely day.
Thanks to the ref for doing a great job and lastly to our coaches for giving up their valuable time.
The boys were enthusiastic from the start of today's game and although Highland started strong,the bulls managed to score with a striking run through, round and between the opposition by Craig Cherrie and a conversion by Jamie Baird boosted the confidence of the team.
Although Highland punched through the middle on occasions and passed wide to their wingers, the bulls managed to hold them.
Still working on the defence and setting up theirs position at the ruck the boys continue to show improvement week on week. Guard, shield A.
Lots of great work by the team with Christopher Lee chasing down players from all over the field. Great tackles being put in by Matthew Rogan, Jamie Baird and Aaron Buckley. Aaron Smith continues to control the play setting up the boys with great passes out from the ruck and scrums.
By the end our boys managed three excellent tries, the latter two scored by a fantastic lad from Highland who stepped in to play for our side when we suffered a couple of injuries. So thanks very much to him for his efforts. A fourth try eluded us when Aaron Buckley was held up from grounding the ball towards the end of the game.
Overall a fantastic effort by all.
