In a stew

Peebles 13

Stewart’s Melville FP 39

RBS PREMIER TWO

PEEBLES slumped to a disappointing loss at the hands of an ambitious Stewart’s Melville outfit at the Gytes on Saturday.

Although dropping a try in the first half, the hosts seemed to have a grip on the game heading up to the 50th minute.

Unfortunately, they lost that control and conceded five tries in a shocking final third.

Dale Clancy scored Peebles’ only try, while Neil Warnock slotted the conversion and two penalties.

The team on the whole performed 100 per cent better than at Whitecraigs the previous week, but lessons must be learned and league points gained in the coming weeks.

Peebles: N. Mackay; N. Hogarth, D. Clancy, N. Warnock, C. Blyth; D. Anderson, D. Moore; R. Milne, M. Carryer, A. Clark, C. Kaindl, J. Serex, K. Clyde, E. Jackson, A. Warnock.
