Accies 1st XV 19-25 GHA 1st XV
Despite scoring three tries in the first half, we went into the break 19-20 down to a GHA side quick to capitalise on our mistakes and especially our yellow card, picking up 10 points during Cameron Bain's time out.

The second half was a real slog, with two more yellow cards for us. GHA score an unconverted try when Richard Mill went off for ten minutes, but could not make anything of our period of 13-men when the referee carded Max Love. The Offside Line's match report (which you can read here) makes much of GHA's defence in the second half, but our boys dug in and did incredibly well to only conceded five in the second half, especially as GHA had considerably more territory than us.

Our Jacoby Rugs Man of the Match was Sean Crombie, who scored a brace of tries and was also a solid contributor to our defence. Sean is kindly sponsored by Greg Campbell.
