After regrouping at half time Musselburgh came out second half and scored try of the day from Marcos Perez-Young after a wide move down the touchline.

Not to be deterred Musselburgh got a grip on the game with some great exit kicks from Aaron Weatherhead and Charlie Prentice for field position. This enabled Max Duxburry to go on a bullocking run to score under the posts to complete the scoring.
