Peebles drop to third place in rugby’s Tennent’s National League Division 2 after back-to-back defeats
Those results see them drop to third place in the table after ten games played, with 35 points, that being two behind second-placed Falkirk and three shy of new table-toppers Glasgow Academicals.
The Pees’ only score in Midlothian on Saturday was a penalty try. Their hosts’ sole try was scored by David Hall, with Matthew Smith converting and also kicking two penalties.
Next up for Peebles as they look to get their promotion push back on track is a visit to the Gytes by basement side Hamilton Bulls this Saturday, with kick-off at 3pm.
Chisholm was diappointed by his side’s showing on Saturday, telling Borders Rugby TV: “It was a really frustrating day for us at Lasswade.
“There was so much clutter in our game and we were wasteful.
“We’re giving away between 15 and 20 penalties every game, and really if you’re giving away more than ten, you’re going to struggle, and we did.
“One of the positives for us is that we’ve come away with a losing bonus point, although a win would have been ideal as we want to stay in the mix.
“We’ve just got to roll with the punches now and we’ve got to try and make this group of players better, individually and as a unit. We’re getting there.”
