The Islay Star conceded the Davidson Chalmers Vets Rugby 7s Cup after two consecutive wins in 2012 and 2013 after a super exciting final against The Crusaders in Melrose on Friday.

With the score standing at 12-all in the closing quarter Dougie Gray scored the winning try for The Crusaders in the final minute of the game. Geoff Cauldwell played well for the winning team, scoring the second try to seal the win.

For Islay Star, Colin Campbell showed some glimpses of magic at stand-off, while old Tom Weir put in some great work in the back row.
