Dundee U14s v Perthshire U14s
Perth win the Tayside Derby
On Sunday the Perth U14 made the short trip to Morgan for their last league match of the season. To the amazement of the whole team Doug won the coin toss (for the first time since August) and asked the home team to kick off.
The Shire boys immediately gathered the ball and started to play their customary running game and attacked the Dundee line. Hooker Struan took two early scrums against the head, with both strikes resulting in tries for wingers Jono and Archie. These were followed by further scores from Callum, Mike, Conor, Fin K, Stuart and Ben, with two convertions by Mike and five by Ru. The half time score was 0 - 30.
Perthshire continued to play well in the second half with Jono completing yet another hatrick and tries by Doug and Tom. Struan also finally got on the score sheet with a brace of tries. There were convertions from Mike (2), Ru and Archie leading to a final score of 0 - 52.
This was a good all round performance from the Perth team who took most of the try scoring opportunities available and indeed the number of different scorers shows great teamwork by the boys. Ru and Andrew pulled the strings very well at halfback and the team are beginning to develop their options in attack which is very encouraging.
Well done to the whole squad for another unbeaten run through the Lancer Conference. There have been some tough away fixtures, particularly at Mackie last week, and the boys have dealt with them well. Also thankyou to the parents for their great support.
