Meanwhile, Whitecraigs coach John Shaw saluted his players efforts after they pushed top flight West of Scotland hard in their pool I match at West Lodge.
With Whitecraigs currently top of Premier Three this one was always going to be tough for West and so it proved with a late try by Mark Davis needed to seal a 15-5 win.
Shaw, who had seen his side take a 5-3 lead in the first half through an Ian Laidlaw try, said: "I was proud of the players' efforts as they worked hard against West and dominated in the scrums. It was just disappointing that we couldn't see the game through, but in the end missing four or five regular players hurt us. Nevertheless the experience will have been good ahead of some key league fixtures coming up."
