Dunbar off to a good start against Leith

Dunbar win well on the road.

Dunbar Rugby Club travelled to the Capital for this first pre-season friendly of the new season. The Dunbar squad was decimated due to holidays, injury and work commitments restricting the squad to just 18 players. Dunbar had lost several front row players in last few weeks and this would be an area of concern for the coaching staff.
Dunbar kicked-off and Leith went straight on the attack. From the resultant tackle by Peters saw the Dunbar made take a bad head knock which resulted in the player leaving the field of play. Dunbar never really let this distraction get in the way of some good backs play which resulted in a try for Andy Taylor after good work by Dillon Beveridge. Charlton added the extra points to give Dunbar the lead after just 3 minutes. Dunbar were moving the big Leith pack around and soon added to their score. Several penalty awards were kicked to the corner and eventually a gap appeared for Mills to nip through to score. The conversion was added by Charlton. Leith were given a boost when their number 12 caused Dunbar a few problems and stretched their defence on more than one occasion. A great break by Mills saw Dillon Beveridge race to the opposition twenty two but the ball was knocked on. Dunbar scored an amazing try after 22 minutes after some good forward and backs play saw full-back Thomson cut the line to go clean through and score. Another successful conversion by Charlton saw Dunbar twenty one points to the good. With 24 minutes gone Baikie made a good run and the ball reached John Peebles who ran in from ten metres out. Charlton kept up the good work with an easy kick. Leith were getting more into the game through some strong running and support by their forwards which resulted in a try after 29 minutes.
Dunbar hit back immediately through Andy Taylor with Charlton converting. It was clear Dunbar had a hard job up front but once the backs got the ball the Leith defence was always struggling. Leith should have scored after a clean break but the last pass fell short of the supporting player.
The second half immediately saw a yellow card produced to Dunbar winger John Peebles. Dunbar seemed to take their feet off the accelerator for a long period before Andy Taylor got them back on track with his third try of the match. Charlton converted to give his side a 42-7 lead. With 63 minutes gone Andy Taylor scored his fourth try of the match and Charlton carried on with his hundred percent kicking success.
Dunbar finished strongly with Gary Peebles scoring a brace on 74 and 79 minutes to round off a good days work. Charlton was successful in converting all the Dunbar tries.
