Montrose 5 Kirkcaldy 34

The nature of this match changed emphatically mid-way through the second half when Scott A suffered a double fracture to his left leg when making a tackle. This led to a considerable delay as Scott’s injury was treated and both teams had to try to keep their focus for the restart.

The opening half had been a staccato affair, with the tone set when Kirkcaldy were penalised for their first tackle in the match and, after again sustaining the referee’s displeasure, found themselves defending on their own 5 metre line. To the players’ credit, they kept their focus, played their way out of trouble and began to put together some attacks.

KIRKCALDY 15 HAMILTON 41

Promotion chasing Hamilton needed to take all five points on offer at Beveridge Park to keep in the hunt and achieved their target with little difficulty at the start of the second half, even surviving the departure of three players to the sin bin.

Their intentions became quite clear in the opening minutes with Kirkcaldy conceding a knock on from the kick-off.  Recycling this scrummage ball several times, a big defensive gap appeared on their left gave full back Adam Ryan ample space to score an unconverted try.

Kirkcaldy U15/U16 50 Glenrothes 12

Kirkcaldy U15/U16s league season opened back in September with a hard fought and hotly contested game at Glenrothes that the Blues narrowly won with a three point margin. With spring knocking at the door, we welcomed Glenrothes to Beveridge Park expecting another good match.

After their tough cup run Kirkcaldy were in the mood to play some rugby and, following an excellent first half performance, were in the box seat at the break with a 33 point lead. The opening salvoes had Kirkcaldy running at the opposition, and the final flourish was provided by Ewan who showed good strength to go over and score.

U16/U15 lose to Howe in Cup Game

Kirkcaldy U15/ U16’s cup run came to an end with a committed performance in a fine game of rugby at Howe. The effort put into the match by the players is emphasised by the number of injuries; with Cairn (shoulder), Sean (knee), Isaac (leg) and Scott (shoulder) all suffering knocks and Jay having to visit A&E to have a tooth reset and splinted.

The game was closer than the score suggests. Playing down a steep slope in the first half Kirkcaldy started brightly but shipped a score early on when Howe won a penalty and then moved the ball left where the winger outflanked the defence.

HOWE OF FIFE 39 KIRKCALDY 12

Kirkcaldy showed signs in the first quarter that they might have ended their long melancholy losing run against Howe but in the end came off decidedly second.  Careless loss of the ball when in promising positions allied to slow reaction set up Howe for their four second half tries.  The Cupar team undoubtedly, as they have shown so often in recent season, had a fleetness of foot and ability to find open space that their guests could not match

The Blues had responded to an early Howe penalty kicked by Dom Martin with a strong forward push culminating in a try for lock Connor Wood after the home side had survived the concession of three penalties in their five metre zone.  Craig Letham‘s conversion gave the visitors a 7-3 lead.

U16 Struggle in Winter Conditions

Scott leads an attack with Matt, Mark and Craig in support
Some winter days in Scotland are almost balmy, with warm sunshine, a gentle breeze and a promise of spring in the air. Sunday was not one of those days. Halfway into the match in grey, overcast conditions, on a wet pitch, with snow falling, a cold, waterlogged Kirkcaldy team were struggling to make any headway against strong, well-organised opposition. A try scored just as the half-time whistle sounded left the Blues 24 points behind and with a mountain to climb.

The scene was set right from the start. Craig caught well from the kick off but Perth stripped the ball, recycled and, after a couple of phases, sucked in the Kirkcaldy defence to open the scoring. This set the pattern for the rest of the half, with Kirkcaldy struggling to get out of their own 22. The pack was struggling to hold its own, giving the half-backs a torrid time behind the scrum.
