Dundee University Medics 10 v Carnoustie 19
After a long holiday break both teams took time to settle into a constructive game. Carnoustie were mainly in a defensive position but defended their line strongly, before breaking up field and pressing the defence back. Eventually the pressure told with Tony Franco Touching down with the conversion added. The Medics again pressed forward and from clean scrum ball broke the defence to touch down, the conversion was missed. The Medic again had field position but resolute defence by Carnoustie kept them at bay until half time.
Carnoustie restarted the second half but in a period of ascendance dropped a ball in mid field allowing it to run loose, the Medics winger hacked the ball ahead and chasing up quickly regathered to touch down, the conversion was missed. Carnoustie eventually got on top with a series of drives deep in the home twenty two before Rob Blyth touched down, the conversion missed. Carnoustie kept the best to last with a series of breaks and keeping the ball moving found a defender out of position to race through the space and touch down at the posts, with the conversion added. A second try for Tony Franco but a real team try. Within minutes the referee brought the game to an end.
