MATCH REPORT: JED-FOREST VS MUSSELBURGH

After Musselburgh’s highly entertaining 32-38 home loss to Aberdeen Grammar, they found themselves on the road again, to play at one of the most picturesque grounds in Scottish rugby, namely Riverside Park, the home of Jedforest, a club also rightly renowned for its skilful back play and sevens prowess. That being the case we all looked forward to another entertaining match after enjoying the hosts hospitality pre-match.


The sun was shining on a very pleasant afternoon as ‘Burgh kicked off, but their immediate possession was turned over as Jed displayed their handling ability which is something of a club trademark, ‘Burgh on the back foot and being turned and attacked at pace. The opening score came after only 5 minutes, when scrum half Munro released his backs for full-back Lewis Young to go over before centre Yourston converted for 7-0.
