Peebles lose the plot in second half

Peebles 6

Watsonians 17

Two Greg Raeburn penalties just before half time was all the Peebles team could muster last weekend in a hard-fought game at the Gytes.

The only try of the game was scored by winger Rory Steele – the city team’s only other points coming from four Tom Hart penalties as the Gytes men lost touch with discipline.

This was a match Peebles will want to sweep under the carpet – it was a far from perfect preparation for meeting old rivals and league leaders Selkirk this Saturday.
