Dunbar start the season with a bonus point win at home

Dunbar magnificent in securing full points in season opener

Dunbar met last year's third place team, Linlithgow having suffered two narrow defeats to the Midlothian side. Dunbar were looking to most of last season's squad with the added newcomers Connor Forlow and Robbie Brown making their Dunbar debuts. Dunbar started well and from the kick off Ross Charlton put in a nice chip over the defence for Jamie Peters to gather. The ball was quickly moved to Gary Peebles who outstripped the defence to score out wide. Ross Charlton added the extra points. Dunbar should have doubled their tally in the next attack but full back Thomson took the ball on rather than pass to his supporting team mate. Linlithgow then hit back from a penalty by full-back Jack Frame. Dunbar then thought they had extended their lead when Andy Taylor crossed but the referee brought play back. Dunbar thern were awarded a penalty on 14 minutes which was quickly taken by skipper Blair Mills who ran in a good try. Linlithgow were guilty of giving away too many penalties and were warned by the referee. The visitors did hit back again with two well taken penalties to peg Dunbar back to just the three points.With 31 minutes played Dunbar scored again when the ball went wide to Sandy Thomson who this time passed out to John Peebles who romped over for a well taken try. The Dunbar full-back then retired injured and was replaced by Robbie Brown for his debut. Linlithgow then kicked another penalty to reduce the deficit. Another penalty from Linlithgow saw the ball go wide.
Dunbar then made several replacement but played with 16 men before the referee was informed resulting in a penalty for the visitor's.Dunbar should have scored on 47 minutes but were turned over. Ben Cairns replaced Andrew Lunam at prop on 52 minutes. Blair Mills extended the home side's lead with a long range penalty on 60 minutes. Linlithgow then reduced the score to five points with another penalty on 69 minutes. Dunbar were not giving their opponents the penalty chances of the first half which allowed them to play a more positive game. Dunbar were awarded another penalty on 73 minutes which was taken quickly by Mills who managed to weave his way throught he visitor's defence for an excellent try. Charlton converted to extend his side's lead to 12 points. From the kick-off new boy Connor Forlow made great strides into the Linlithgow half but his pass went astray but the clearance was charged down by Gary Peebles who raced for the score. Charlton added the extra points to secure the victory. Linlithgow had the last say with an injury time try but it was Dunbar who took the spoils this time 34-20
