Playing at Fullerton Park for the first time, Jed found the Marr RFC pitch very much in great conditions although the strong wind gave both teams a challenge.

The visitors scored the first points when a turnover allowed a quick counter attack and an inside pass saw Fraser Harkness find space to scamper over. Donald Grieve converted and added a penalty 10 minutes later.

Not long afterwards however home full-back Rory McGee converted a penalty and continued to be a thorn in the visitors’ side. He touched down for a try, which he also converted before adding a further two penalties to put the hosts 14-10 ahead at the break.

With the wind advantage now in their favour Jed began to pressurise and showed good patience before finally being rewarded when Declan Wallace shrugged off a couple of Marr defenders to score a good individual try to secure the narrowest of victories.
