There is definitely depth within the Scottish squads this season and the talent that the club has developed over the years and being fortunate to have quality players land on our doorstep makes us real strong contenders for the McCormick Cup. Keeping an eye on the other division, we are right in the hunt, although at the halfway point of the season there are still a few pieces that we need work upon.
With the Irish reduced to 14 men, the Scottish took over and worked within their structures and hit their objectives on the day. With only 13 total turnovers the possession that the Scottish had, they used well moving the ball from the breakdown and played running rugby…. the Irish did not have an answer.
Will Devane deserves special mention as he scored and set up 3 other tries on the weekend…. but the “man of the match” goes to the entire 1st XV this week as everyone put in a massive shift to put a half century on the Irish. It will be interesting to see what their response will be in September – the league title could go down to the wire.
