Lanark's win keeps them top!

5 years ago By Graeme McNicol

Following a fantastic 43 - 0 win over Cowal, Lanark remain at the top of the RBS West Division 4 table. Read on to see the action.

A fantastic performance against Cowal, winning 43 - 0.


Lanark Rugby Club were clearly up for their game against Cowal on Saturday, putting moves that they have been learning on the training field into action.

Starting brilliantly with their first try coming in 3 minutes and scoring the bonus earning fourth before the end of the first quarter.

Rhuaraidh McLatchie opened with a burst down the touch line evading several tackles on the way to score at the corner.

After Lanark's pack turned over an opposition scrum, Lanark's No 8 Alan MacKay broke from the base of the scrum to give scrum half Iain Hughes sight of the line for the second.


Markis McKaig got the next, beating the defence from a well placed kick ahead and McLatchie repeated the move from an Andrew Angus kick.

Fly half Angus found a gap for a long run in to complete the half, which with Iain Hughes’ conversions made the score 29 – 0.

With Lanark in rampant form the second half promised much, but to Cowal’s credit it was only in the final quarter that they succumbed to further Lanark pressure.

Nick Humphries crossed but the touch down was disallowed before Niall Robertson and Euan Scott added to the try count. Hughes’ conversions made the final score 43 – 0.

The performances that were put in all over the park were nothing short of brilliant; the pack winning most of the oposition's scrum, the lineouts functioning well and the back's moves proving really difficult to defend against.

It was Lanark’s best showing to date with many players being candidates for the man of the match award. Making the selection was a tough decision this week, however with some fantastic runs, tries and place kicking, the winner was Andrew Angus.
