A depleted Peebles Und 16s were narrowly defeated by their Stew/Mel counterparts at Hay lodge on Saturday morning. Both sides played open, flowing rugby scoring six tries each with the visitors converting two more of their tries. This was another very promising performance by the Under 16s who ran strongly at every opportunity, with centre Michael Girdler, lock Finlay Sinclair and prop Arran Cameron deserving special mention. Despite conceding six tries the home defence stood up well and opposition scores generally coming from one missed tackle. Sam Foster put in one copybook effort which stopped another certain score. Try scorers for Peebles were Michael Girdler (5) Jay Coltman (1)and 2 conversions.
