HERIOT’S went to the top of RBS Premier B following a convincing victory at a cold and crisp Goldenacre on Saturday.
Following a morning pitch inspection, the surface was judged to be playable, making it one of only four matches to kick off in the Premiership.
First-half tries from former Jed man Jason Hill, Graham Wilson and a penalty try, all converted by Wilson, won the city side the vital league points.
A spirited second half from Jed earned them a penalty for Ewan Scott and a try for Iain Chisholm to cut their deficit.
There were three yellow cards for Jed and one for Heriot’s.
Jed-Forest: I. Chisholm; G. Young, R. Hogg, K. Aitchison, D. Gobby; E. Scott, R. Goodfellow; A. Ions, D. Grieve, A. Croitoru, J. Szkudro, A. Nagle, M. Weekly, D. Gillespie. Subs: D. Grieve. G. Slorance, S. Raeburn, G. Taylor, J. Hogg.
