Match Summary Prem 3: Musselburgh v Accies

Results, Saturday 21 September 2019
1st XV 61-14 Musselburgh
2nd XV 36-53 Musselburgh

1st XV 61-14 Musselburgh 1st XV
We made the most of what were perfect rugby conditions at Stoneyhill - little wind and wall-to-wall warm autumnal sunshine - to come away with a nine tries to two win. We started well with two converted tries in the first 12 minutes, before Musselburgh pulled one back, and then we scored at regular intervals for the rest of the game, only allowing ‘Burgh in to have the last word with a try just before the final whistle. A good day at the office at a venue where we have struggled in the past.

Our Jacoby Rugs Man of the Match was Angus Inwood. Please contact sponsorship@edinburghaccies.com if you are interested in sponsoring Angus for the rest of the season.

2nd XV 36-53 Musselburgh 2nd XV
A rather different looking 2nd XV this week, due to injuries, unavailability and promotion to the 1sts for some players, and unfortunately we were just not able to quash a strong Musselburgh side. However, we did come away with a try bonus and it was an exciting match to watch for tries. The 2nd XV Man of the Match was Fraser Lindsay, who scored two tries.
