KIRKCALDY 10 FALKIRK 17

The conditions for this BT National League Division 2  were bright but with a blustering wind which was flowing in all directions.

Falkirk came to the Beveridge Park as joint leaders of the division with the Howe. After a good , but losing ,performance last week at Ardrossan, the Blues were looking to get something out of this match with a full strength side.

The match kicked off with the Blues attacking the pond end.

For the first quarter of the match to a neutral it look like Kirkcaldy were the joint leaders, as they dominated possession and territory with Falkirk seeing little of the ball. It took until the 17th minute for Kirkcaldy’s pressure to affect the scoreboard when Steve Mitchell went over from a ruck. Finlay Smith converted to give the Blues the lead at 7-0.

ARDROSSAN ACADS 25 KIRKCALDY 17

At a venue where Kirkcaldy have traditionally suffered in the past, it was a bit more than unfortunate for their league prospects that this fixture in Ayrshire clashed with the wedding of centre Iain Gillies. Almost half of his team mates were on the guest list and with several late call-offs the Beveridge Park side was possibly one of the least experienced fielded in well over 600 league games. 

The youngsters excelled themselves and were denied a losing bonus point with a stoppage time Ardrossan try.  In spite of coming off second best at the set pieces and against a team which had a few big ball carriers in their pack Kirkcaldy rarely flinched.

Kirkcaldy 53 vs Montrose 12

Although the holiday season had taken its toll on both squads, Kirkcaldy and Montrose mustered enough players to produce an entertaining game of rugby. The teams were evened-up at 14-a-side with Grant gallantly guesting for the opposition, and kicked off in excellent playing conditions.

The opening exchanges were very even, with both teams competing well at the breakdown and snuffing out attacks from the other side. Handling was good, despite the dampness of the ground but much of the play stayed close in around the pack with the backs only occasionally getting a sniff of the ball. The deadlock was eventually broken when Scott darted around the side of a scrum to claim the points. He then slotted the conversion to start Kirkcaldy on their way.

KIRKCALDY 29 CARTHA QP 54

Former Kirkcaldy coach and current SRU president Ian Rankin witnessed his old side put in a catastrophic defensive display at Beveridge Park where they gifted three converted tries through abysmal defensive kicking and two others resulting from the slackest of tackling.

There was no denying that Cartha QP deserved their bonus point win.  Overall they ran much more purposefully and backed up strongly, making the most of their possession.  While Kirkcaldy had a certain shape to their play, high lighted in scoring two early tries through Mark Wallace and Quintan Sanft they made it well nigh impossible for themselves with a lack of basic defensive diligence.
