Royal Blues lose after great start

Dundee 36

Jed-Forest 14

Jed flew to a brilliant start thanks to tries by Gregor Young and Donald Grieve, both ably converted by Daniel Ritchie.

However, the second half saw a gradual deterioration in the Borderers’ determination and Dundee scored five tries unanswered, their best performances coming from Blair Cochrane, Gavin Hughan, Darrell Russell and Donald Sangster.

Jed lie fourth bottom and their last game, away to Biggar on Saturday, could be crucial.
