This was an eight tries to two win for the Blues against a Haddington team which was out played for large portions of the game but never lost their appetite and deserved their two second half scores.

After four consecutive defeats Kirkcaldy were anxious to halt the downward drift in the table but facing an awkward swirling wind they didn’t help themselves with some over ambitious handling in the early stages and relied on s good touch finders from Quintan Sanft and Craig Letham to find worthwhile field positions.  Growing territorial superiority eventually paid off as flanker Dayle Turner crossed in the corner for a 5-0 lead.

The Blues miserable run continued last Saturday as they stumbled to a seven tries to two defeats by mid table Whitecraigs in Glasgow, the third consecutive game in which they have conceded in excess of forty points. They must be glad now they took points off the three teams at the bottom of the table otherwise the big R would be confronting them at the season’s end.

Unable to control the kick-off ball, Kirkcaldy again conceded a try almost straight from the start and were five points behind before they caught breath,  Early Whitecraigs scrummage superiority  and break down control meant that the home side controlled proceedings for lengthy spells.  Although there were occasional first half defensive lapses, the Blues just managed to blunt ‘Craigs’ attacks for most of the first half hour.

Kirkcaldy 2nd XV 17 Stobswell 13

Kirkcaldy seconds hosted Stobswell at Beveridge Park knowing they would have to play as should Stobby lose they would be relegated out of Division 3.  

Stobby  's intention was clear from the outset, their bigger pack really taking the game to the young Kirkcaldy team.  It wasn't long before they were encamped in the 22 thanks, in general, to the pick and drives and forwards taking short passes from the scrum half.

In the second minute of this game at Woodside the Kirkcaldy scrummage crumbled against a formidable eight and for the next seventy eight minutes the Blues struggled to be competitive and by the end had conceded five tries against the most improved team in the division. 

As the game progressed it was hard to believe that ‘Shire had never beaten Kirkcaldy in a competitive game.  Since their loss at Beveridge Park at the start of the season they have built up their squad from a variety of sources and are now operating on a different plain from the Blues who are now rooted in the lower reached of the division.  This was Aberdeenshire’s eighth consecutive win and while promotion may be beyond their reach they will be formidable opponents for those still to play them.

Crieff 0 Kirkcaldy 84

A lovely spring day in late November (!) provided perfect conditions for this visit to Crieff. Kirkcaldy were a little short of match practice, the last two games having been cancelled due to waterlogging, and were looking forward to a good run out. Once again the selection committee had been required so the players selected for today had to reward the faith shown in them by the coaches.
