Jed-Forest 21

Howe of Fife 15

A late try by Sean Goodfellow sealed a hard-fought victory for Jed in Championship Division B.

Howe led 8-3 at the break, with Chris Laidlaw knocking over Jed’s only points.

Stern words at half-time saw an improved second half showing and a Laidlaw penalty pulled the Royal Blues to within two points, before John Szkudro’s try put Jed ahead at 16-8.

A converted touchdown by the visitors meant the Cupar side were just one point behind, before number nine Sean Goodfellow darted in from a five-metre scrum to ensure an opening day win.
