Rubislaw rout for struggling Kelso



Aberdeen Grammar recorded their biggest win of the season when disposing of a poor Kelso side at Rubislaw.

The hosts led 24-6 at half-time, taking the lead through an Alex Hagart penalty which was followed tries from flanker Robin Cessford, Gilmour and Peceli Nacamavuto, all three converted by Hagart.

The same pattern continued into the second half, with Hagart leading the way with another penalty and Gilmour running in his second try to give the home side a try bonus point.

Grammar allowed the Borders side into the game, enabling them to score touchdowns through full back Andrew Skeen and lock Ian Wallace.

Skeen kicked the extras to add to his two first-half penalties, giving him a personal tally of 15.

Grammar then came to their collective senses, scoring through winger Alex Ratcliffe (2), full back Ali Addy and Nacamavuto, all converted by Hagart, who exceeded Skeen’s total with 20 points.
