Greenock Sevens 2016
Written by Colin Parsons   
Tuesday, 26 April 2016

As a result of injuries and late call offs, the Blues travelled to Greenock with a thread bare squad of 8 players instead of the usual 10. Following their appearance in the Hamilton 7s Cup Final the previous week, the young squad headed west knowing they would need to put in a huge effort, and they certainly didn’t disappoint. The competition format of four groups of three teams, pitched the Kirkcaldy squad against an athletic Strathclyde University and fellow National League Division 2 team Cartha Queens Park.

KIRKCALDY 26 CARTHA QUEENS PARK 36

With less than a minute gone of this final league game of the season at Beveridge Park last Saturday, home flanker Rory Brown roared away from mid way and came within a metre of touching down as he was held up. Aggressive defence then constantly checked the Blues as they re-cycled the ball. No sooner had Cartha repulsed this pressure they displayed clear scrummage superiority which provided quick ball for an accomplished back line.

Kirkcaldy had few answers to Cartha pace and power and after three scrummage penalties had been conceded and lock Steve Mitchell yellow carded referee Neil Muir awarded a penalty try converted by Wayne Burrows in the 11 th minute.

Seconds Avenge Earlier Defeat
Written by Colin Parsons

Howe of Fife 2XV 33 Kirkcaldy Rugby 2XV 64
 
Kirkcaldy 2XV managed to field a strong 22 man squad for the second week in succession (a first for this season !), and made the short trip to Cupar confident of putting in a resolute team performance and hopeful of avenging the 10 point home defeat earlier in the season.
 
Conditions were ideal as Kirkcaldy kicked off down the slope deep into the Howe 22. Immediately the 2’s pushed hard and put Howe under pressure. After a few phases of possession, Steven Milne reacted quickly to steal the ball in contact and a quick offload resulted in Lee George sprinting over from 6m out. With 7 mins gone, Jack Devine gathered a high Howe clearance and weaved his way towards the opponents try line. Once Jack was brought down, the ball was quickly recycled and popped out to Mathew Coyne on the wing, who crashed over the line. Jack successfully converted from wide to give Kirkcaldy a 14-0 lead.

Liam leads team out on 200th cap
1st XV captain Liam Neilson became the sixth Kirkcaldy player to reach the two hundred mark of league appearances when he played against Greenock Wanderers last Saturday. Liam made his debut in a 14-22 loss to Ayr on 1 February 2003 on the wing. In those days Liam plied his trade in the three quarter line having represented Caledonia Under 20 in the centre before converting to the back row in 2008
