Langholm dust off the cobwebs in loss



After a month without action, Langholm managed to get a team together for the league clash against Dunbar at Milntown on Saturday, writes John Smith.

The home pack strove hard and produced some good periods of play, and the backs showed the odd encouraging attack, but it was mainly a weak defence that proved the downfall of the home side.

Dunbar continually stretched Langholm but, fortunately for the home side, fly half Nathan Smith was on form with the boot to keep the scoreline from looking one-sided.

It was 15-28 at half-time, with the home points coming from five Smith penalties.

There was no scoring in the third quarter, but Dunbar finished strongly with another three tries, one of which was converted.

Langholm centre Alasdair Cavers had a well-deserved try, which Smith converted.
