Dunbar v Duns

Dunbar bounce back in second half after a poor first half

Dunbar welcomed Duns to Hallhill for this East 1 match, which survived some severe overnight rain. Dunbar had a couple of late changes with Dillon Beveridge and Denham Blair late replacements for Jack Walters and Ross Blair. Dunbar had u18 stand-off Struan Fenn at outside centre for his League debut.
Duns started the more eager and were awarded a first minute penalty which Fleming converted. A try by full back Thomson extended the Duns lead after 6 minutes before Ross Charlton kicked a Dunbar penalty after 8 minutes. With 12 minutes played Duns extended their lead with a try which was converted. Play was moving from end to end very quickly and back came Dunbar with a neat try by full back Sandy Thomson on 16 minutes. Charlton converted to bring Dunbar to within five points.
Duns were awarded a penalty on 21 minutes and a quick tap saw their number eight Grigg cross for a good score. Play seemed to settle down as both teams strived to take the initiative but Dunbar suffered a blow when youngster Struan Fenn was yellow carded for a dump tack. A stamp to the head was missed by the referee as the Duns forwards seemed to take umbrage. Duns scored two tries in the next seven minutes to take the game away from the home side. Dunbar did show enough in the last five minutes of the half to take into the second half.
With 5 minutes of the second half gone Dunbar, who had started where they finished the first half scored a good try when youngster Fenn finished off a good move. Charlton again kicked the conversion. Duns then scored two quick fire tries before having their prop yellow carded. Duns were still giving away a huge amount of penalties and the referee seemed reluctant to send another player to the bin. Rory Wood then seemed to score for Dunbar in the corner but the referee brought play back for a forward pass. Dunbar were now the team on top and with the Duns player returning another headed to the bin for ten minutes. The penalties continued to come to Dunbar and more action should have been taken by the referee. Dunbar then scored what was probably the try of the match as Sandy Thomson came into the line at pace to smash his way over for the try. Charlton converted to keep his perfect kicking display intact. Duns then went uncontested in the scrum as Dunbar continued to press for another try but time was not on their side.
This was another disappointing result for the young Dunbar team who allowed Duns to dictate things in the first half. Dunbar did come away by outscoring Duns in the second half but it was not enough.
