Peebles Colts U16 42 – Duns Und 16s 22 ~ 29 August 2018

Peebles Und 16s began their season with a home win against their Duns counterparts scoring six tries and conceding four. Peebles were well lead by Captain Oliver Landers who carried strongly and put in some fine tackles. Duns were by far the bigger and heavier side but the Peebles pack although under pressure in the set piece were more effective in the loose and in support play. The Peebles backs attacked at every opportunity and were unlucky not to cross for one or two more touchdowns.
No 8 Jay Coltman ran strongly for a hat-trick of individual tries with Michael Girdler and Ethan Huxley contributing one try each. The try of the match was scored by Jamie McGovern who beat two players to run in from 40 metres following excellent work by the pack and his inside backs. Ethan Huxley converted all six tries with an excellent display of goal kicking.
This was a very promising start to the season with the only disappointment being the number of penalties conceded at the breakdown – something to work on! Special mention should go to Frey McIver, Patrick Cannon and Aaron Cameron who are still under 15 but were not out of place in this age group.
