Soaring Hawks find poor Jed easy prey

Glasgow Hawks 51

Jed-Forest 14


IT took high-flying Glasgow Hawks only three minutes to get their first points on the board on Saturday before continuing to make easy pickings of struggling Jed.

Prop Steven Findley barged over for the opener, converted by Mike Adamson, who added a penalty soon after.

Jed had to rejig their backs after centre Robert Hogg left the field with a leg injury and Hawks went on to score another four tries in the first half – two from Haddon MacPherson and one each for Tom Steven and Tony Herron – for a 34-0 interval lead.

Things didn’t get much better in the second half – Hawks opened the scoring after only four minutes. Steven once more proved to be a slippery customer when breaking through several tackles to score.

Jed got their chance to make inroads when Hawks made several changes to their line-up.

Ewan Scott managed to barge over the Hawks’ line on the 47th and 60th minutes, with both scores being converted by Iain Chisholm.

Normal service resumed, however, and Hawks had the final say in the game when their replacement Callum Kerr scored on the 78-minute mark. On-form Adamson notched the remainder of his side’s points with the boot.
