Dunbar v Murrayfield Wanderers

Dunbar lose out to high flying Wanderers at Hallhill

Dunbar knew they would be up against probably the biggest pack in the league and that their lightweight forwards would be up against it. The home side welcomed back hooker Chris Bryce but had Kyle Donnellan missing for this East Division 1 match.
Wanderers took the fight to Dunbar straight from the kick off with wave upon wave of attacks through forwards and backs. The pressure was too much and the visitor’s scrum half Strachan went over at the posts with Hastie converting. Again the Wanderers put pressure on the Dunbar eight who gave away several penalties which were all quickly taken and driven on. Dunbar did defend stoutly but the pressure was too much and Wanderers doubled their lead on 9 minutes. Dunbar did have a couple of half chances through winger John Peebles but the visitor’s defence was good. Wanderers scored again after 20 minutes and this saw Dunbar lose prop Conlin McArthur with an eye injury. Niall Spowart took to the field in his first senior match since his world travels of the last few years. Blair Mills missed a penalty for Dunbar from near half way after 31 minutes. With half time approaching Richie Gallacher saw yellow, which was for too many infringements by Dunbar.
With 42 minutes gone Wanderers scored what was probably the try of the match through their stand-off Hastie after a great run through the home defence. Dunbar were getting some good chances and it was Captain Blair Mills who broke clear to score with Charlton converting. The home side had the better of the play but could not find their way to the line after some good runs by Ewan Patrizio. With 62 minutes gone Wanderers extended their lead as Dunbar started to tire. This was followed by another try on 68 minutes. Jamie Peters then saw yellow for Dunbar again for too many infringements by the Dunbar team. With full time approaching Murrayfield scored to complete the scoring.
Dunbar were up against it all day but they never gave up. Dunbar are now away for the next four league matches and will need to start picking up points to hold on to their position near the top of the table.
