GHK 29  KIRKCALDY 26

With most of the Scottish rugby card wiped out through adverse weather Kirkcaldy must have been surprised to find an excellent surface on arrival at Old Anniesland although a stiff end to end wind must have caused some concern when the home side won the toss.

GHK, runaway leaders of  National 3, and bristling with  fast runners and with a tactical acumen which Kirkcaldy could not match, quickly exploited their advantage.

PRESTON LODGE 24  KIRKCALDY 29

The Blues recorded their third consecutive five point win to secure their place in the top half of the of the National 2 table at Pennypit Park last Saturday  Fortunes fluctuated throughout this closely fought game which ended with the visitors under pressure in their 22. Twice Kirkcaldy had gone behind in the first half, trailing 14-12 at half time but another dominant forward showing ensured that the points went back over the Forth.

PL quickly showed they had power and pace behind the scrum and when Kirkcaldy missed touch from a penalty the home side ran the ball back with stand off Greg Walker splitting the defence to touch down near the posts and converting the try himself.  The Blues might have conceded another score but for a brave tackle from Alex Brooks, deputising for the injured Kurt Littlejohn.

BIGGAR 11 KIRKCALDY 22

With less than half an hour played at Hartreemill last Saturday the Blues trailed 11-3 as Biggar looked on course to repeat the convincing win they had at Beveridge Park last October.  By the end the visitors dominated proceedings and could count themselves unfortunate not to have secured the four try bonus point  However before kick-off coach Quintan Sanft had to reshuffle his side with mountainous prop George Mangalo and top scorer Dayle Turner both calling off.  Into the pack came navy man Matt Harvey who slipped in the back row while Mark Henderson was promoted from the bench to the front row  Into back line came former colts player dual registered Jamie Ferguson instead of the unavailable Jamie Moffat

Dayle Turner's third try 10 minutes from time secured victory
KIRKCALDY 29 ARDROSSAN ACADEMICALS 25

An effervescent Ayrshire side which refused to lie down mounted one last attack deep into stoppage time and coming within a metre of the Kirkcaldy line. With men to spare on the left a match winning score seemed inevitable. Then came a thunderous all embracing tackle from home winger Finlay Bruce which halted Ardrossan in their tracks and danger was averted. The remaining seconds were then played out in calm waters.

Fortunes constantly switched during this compelling game and Kirkcaldy had thrice to come from behind to take this bonus point win so securing their seventh place in the league table at the mid-winter break. At the heart of this Kirkcaldy win was an all powerful back row with flanker Dayle Turner again scoring three tries and blind sider Rhys Bonner constantly hitting up through the middle in another impressive display.

FALKIRK 56  KIRKCALDY 5

After their heroics at Sunnyside last season, Kirkcaldy  came a cropper on this visit conceding eight converted tries against a solitary Dayle Turner counter.  For long spells of the game promotion chasing Falkirk denied the Blues even a sniff of the ball and with a powerful pack dominating proceedings from the moment winger Thomas Kalian opened the scoring in the 4th minute Kirkcaldy looked second best.

This was by no means a repetition of some of the Kirkcaldy horror shows earlier in the season.  It was more a case of coming up against a side very capable of holding their own at a higher level.  This Falkirk team brimmed with power, pace and accuracy in every department and exploited every weakness in this Kirkcaldy outfit. In particular recent line-out improvements had gone, allowing Falkirk to dominate the touchline.  At least four of the Falkirk tries stemmed from this source.
