1st XV 38-33 Jed-Forest 1st XV
It was very much a game of two 'halves' last Saturday - the first of 60 minutes and the second of what ever remained of the game. After 60 minutes we were leading 33-7, and then we went down to 14 when Patrick O'Sullivan received a ‘red’ for a second yellow card. Jed woke up and scored 25 points to our five in the remaining time.

It was an exciting match, with 11 tries in all, six to us, but a bit too exciting for our spectators in those last 20-odd nail-biting minutes. Fortunately we hung on to the lead to come away with a bonus-point win, never an easy feat at Riverside Park.

Our Jacoby Rugs Man of the Match was stand-in captain, Max Love, not least for his hat-trick of tries. Max is kindly sponsored by Whigham's Wine Cellars.

Tries - Sean Crombie (Greg Campbell); Max Love (3); Jamie Loomes (The Desson Family); Nick Hall (Murray & Currie)
Conversions - Richard Mill (Graham + Sibbald); Jamie Loomes (3)
