Thanks in no small part to a Jack Sutherland hatrick we ran out winners by 43-38. Both sides attack were in good form, defences for the most part left at home!
Both sides traded 4 tries apiece in the 1st half to leave all level at 28-28. With a 5 mins left on the clock we were all level again at 38-38 after the superb Mackie fullback scorched round the outside for his 3rd try. A terrific burst from Jack Sutherland looked like he was going to score the winning try but an equally impressive tackle held him a metre from the line, on hand to collect the offload was Steven Rutledge who dived over for the winning score 38-43.
An entertaining game where some of our younger U18's were handed starting places and aquitted themselves well.
Scorers for Highland were Jack Sutherland 3T, John Clark
