Linlithgow v Dunbar

Dunbar lose match at the death.

Dunbar travelled to Linlithgow for their third away fixture in a row. Coach Mark Coull was forced into many changes for a multitude of reasons. connor mclellan, Robbie Brown, Ally Brown, Ben Cairns coming into the pack with Rory Wood and Thomas Salkeld making their starting debut on the wing and scrum half respectively.
Dunbar survived two early missed penalties from the Linlithgow full-back Jack Frame before Dunbar scored the first try of the match. Some strong running by Brown and Peters saw the latter feed the onrushing Thomson from full-back to score at the posts. Ross Charlton converted to give his side a 7-0 lead after 18 minutes. Linlithgow had the better of possession but the visitors tackled like demons. Chances were few and far between but the home side should have scored on 30 minutes but for another superb tackle by Thomson. As half-time approached Linlithgow had all the pressure but could not break through. Jamie Peters eventually gained possession and broke down field to clear the danger. Right on half time Dunbar gave away a penalty and this time Frame converted.
From the Linlithgow restart Charlton put in an exceptional kick up the line. Dunbar winger Wood flew up his line and kicked on and seemed to win the chase to touch down. The referee who was no-where near adjudged there was a knock on to the anger of the Dunbar players. From the referees position it would have been hard to judge anything.
Dunbar again had to defend well and another superb tackle by Thomson kept Linlithgow out. The referee then blew up and issued a yellow card to the Dunbar player. It was quite clear to the player and the visiting support that the player had not committed the infringement the referee blew for as he was no-where near the ball. Spowart replaced Brown after 50 minutes to freshen things up. John Peebles then had a good run up his wing but was brought down and the danger cleared. No sooner had Brown left the field he was forced to return when Pickles was injured. Moffat then replaced the injured Robbie Brown.
After 60 minutes the Dunbar defence was breeched by a crash ball by Ronalson which was converted by Frame. Chris Bryce then made a try saving tackle. With Dunbar chasing the game a double change was made with McArthur and Beveridge replacing Bryce and John Peebles.
Dunbar threw everything into attack and were awarded with a penalty right in front which Charlton converted to level the scores at ten all. Brown then burst throught he home defence from his own half and scored under the posts. Charlton converted to give Dunbar a seven point cushion with only six minutes remaining. From the kick off the Linlithgow winger broke through to storm up the field. With good territory the ball was thrown wide and a try was scored in the corner. The conversion was missed and Dunbar hung on to their lead. With time running out Dunbar conced a penalty which Frame converted for a single point lead. Dunbar did not have time to do anything about it and the referee blew for time.
This was a much improved performance by a much changed team but again frailties cost the team dearly. Dunbar failed to manage the last few minutes and hopefully that will be a learning curve for the young team. Dunbar have a week off before they play Leith at Hallhill in the Shield.
