Perthshire Defeat Dundee 34-19
Perthshire win last game of the conference defeating Dundee 34-19
So, Perthshire travelled a short journey north to Dundee for the final conference match of the season and saw Perthshire continue in fine form running out winners 34-19.
The first match earlier in the season was a tight affair between the two teams and today would not be much easier. Today David took on the responsibility of the captaincy and was assisted by Angus with both working well and communicating clear instructions for the players. There would be a strong contest up front so our forwards were well prepared for a tough afternoons work. Overall a strong performance from all the forwards in difficult playing conditions setting up the platform for the win. The strong forwards presence supported very well with Sam and David allowing them to get the ball quickly out wide to generate good scoring opportunities for the backs. The majority of the scoring was done through great wide-open team play with Matthew and Magnus dotting down 7 times between them. The forwards also got on the scoresheet with two strong breakthrough tries from Joshua while David complimented the team performance adding 7 conversions to the scoreboard.
A special mention goes out to Elliott, who was today’s Man of the Match. Playing at fullback, Elliott’s cover as the last Man in defence was an invaluable contribution to the result. Elliot made 4 try saving tackles and kept the scoreboard in Perthshire’s favour. His ball distribution was spot on while his strong carries added up to an outstanding performance. Well done on today which was a unanimous vote among the coaches.
Well done to the entire squad for their performance in all Conference matches this season, there have been some excellent contests and set up the team well for the journey ahead, long may it continue.
