Leading by 10 points by half time wasn’t quite enough to pull off a giant slaying act but Jed will be happy with the two bonus points gained.
Playing in front of a large home support the hosts scored first when Robert Hogg broke through to touch down.
High flying Watson’s regained control and tries from Matt Coles and Darren Miller, converted by James King, shot them ahead.
An impressive break from Jed’s Connor Hogg got the momentum going again. Rory Marshall ran in for a try in the corner, converted by Mein, quickly followed by a solo effort for Gregor Young. Now enjoying the majority of the ball and territory Jed scored the bonus point try on half time when Mein sent a huge miss pass to Robbie Shirra-Gibb to score the easiest of tries which the former converted. Half time: Jed-Forest 24 Watsonians 14.
The visitors started the second half strongly, however, it was the home team that scored first when a well struck penalty by Mein extended the Jed lead.
Three quick fire tries from Jonny Neary, Rory Drummond and Euan McKirdy, one converted by King, put Watson’s back in the driving seat and a penalty by Mein could only reduce the visitors lead before King had the last say with a similar effort.
