And losing lineouts are solely the fault of the hooker?


It's not just the lineouts.  Flavin is fine, but Reynecke is a difference maker.

Good point Overstrander...but I do think Reynecke was more impressive!

That was the most INCREDIBLE atmosphere at a league match I have EVER been at (excluding Interpros). The Clan Terrace was feral once Swifty was binned, it was brilliant. Can't wait for the bigger matches - official attendance 3600 but probably more like 2500.


It's like a whole new experience in the Sportsground now - better selection of food and the Clan bar is perfect for rugby - we couldn't hear the crowd from the main stand as we were making SO MUCH NOISE - cannot wait for the next home match.

Great result, some very positive performances.

Thought flavin had a great game, was impressed with reynecke when he came on also.

Interesting to see Gannon on the bench.

Delighted with the result. It was a scrappy game but considering we hardly saw the ball for 50 mins or so to come out with a win is huge.

At this stage with so many changes in the squad the main thing you want to see is that the attitude is right and the players are willing to play as a unit and we saw that today. Ok we made some poor mistakes and took some poor options at times but at 3-11 we hadn't played well, the ref was making some bizarre decisions, the weather was poor, it would have been easy to let the game slip but we showed a great appetite for the game in the final 30.

The two wingers showed good signs on a day not designed for wingers, Henry Fa'aili showed good signs in attack and defence, was slightly unlucky in the first half, did well for McCrea's try though. Impressed with Jarvis in terms of getting the backline going and keeping the opposition guessing, unfortunately with the ref giving up on the scrums and a poor lineout early on he didn't get as many chances. Reynecke showed positive signs when he came on and George showed leadership in the 2nd half. The two lads in the 2nd row don't need to be mentioned we know what we'll get. Superb!

Good atmosphere for a messy Saturday afternoon and the crowd and atmosphere will only improve if the team keep doing the business. Roll on Edinburgh!

Good to see David Gannon back, with the games coming thick and fast its good to have another option in an area where we're a bit short handed at present.

Fantastic atmosphere today in the clan terace! Especially in the second half.  Thought Henry, Tiernan, McCrea, Rodney & McCarty were very good

It's amazing how the fisticuffs with Swifty and the subsequent double sin binning got the Clan's terrace really going. This is turn had an effect on both the team and the ref.
