GRT juggernaut slow to start

Livingston 0

Gala Red Triangle 93

EDINBURGH & DISTRICT UNDER-15s

GRT took a while to get going as slow ball from the forwards and poor decision-making by the backs did not promise much.

However, a try and conversion from Matt Lochrie spurred the visitors into action and quickly Neil Turnbull scored another two tries, one of which was converted by Lochrie.

During the second period, GRT found their flow and ran in seven tries in 20 minutes. Scorers were Mark Amos, Jay Allan (2), Andrew Mitchell, Jack Halls, Josh Bertram and Sean Williams. Lochrie added five conversions.

The third period saw more tries come from Turnbull, Amos (3) and Tony Thompson, with a further two conversions added by Lochrie.

Man of the match was centre Josh Bertram with a fantastic performance in attack and defence, giving the GRT a solid platform to work from.
