Langholm let-down

Langholm 15

RHC Cougars 38

RBS EAST DIVISION ONE

LANGHOLM fell at the first hurdle of the new season as RHC took home a bonus-point win, writes John Smith.

The home side opened the scoring in the third minute when Colin Jardine dived over after Gavin Campbell’s break down the 
wing.

However, RHC ran in three tries before the interval. Langholm started the second half in attacking waves and Campbell had a clear run to the corner, but missed the conversion.

RHC replied with two converted tries before going down to 14 men when the prop was yellow-carded.

Jardine scored on the blindside, but again the conversion was missed, and the visitors scored from a driving maul as time ran out.
