PEEBLES 26  KIRKCALDY 35

The Blues astounded the large Peebles crowd ready to celebrate their comfortable home win with a stunning finale, which turned a 26-18 deficit with just over ten minutes left into a bonus point victory.

Forwards coach Kenny Fraser, while delighted his side had won, tempered his praise with an admonition.  “We were very much on top in the early stages with two tries on the board. Then we had two dubious yellow cards in quick succession and while we were short handed we lost fourteen points and went 20-10 behind. The comeback to win the game was great but I'm concerned by the way we allowed the game to drift for quite a while, wasting scoring chances” He was also keen to praise the contribution of youngsters James Barclay, Scott McKervail and Scott Barclay  “These boys are just out of the colts and they are learning quickly and will be important to our squad in the months to come”

There were signs in the opening stages that Kirkcaldy would have a decided forward advantage, both at scrummages and line-outs as well as a rolling driving maul. This proved vital in the first score of the game.  A teasing kick from Craig Letham forced Peebles full back Ruaridh Clinch to concede a line-out ten metres from the try line. A driving maul set up a scoring position which eventually produced an unconverted try for hooker Greg Wallace.

KIRKCALDY 28 HOWE OF FIFE 17

When Howe beat Kirkcaldy in a National 4 fixture at Beveridge Park in the 1973-74 season, the first of league rugby, little did the Blues think then that forty four years would pass before their side beat the Cupar team in a national competitive game. Certainly the clubs were in different divisions for thirty-one years, though they did meet in local cup games and friendlies in which the Blues had more than their fair share of wins. This Kirkcaldy victory however marks the end of this period of Howe supremacy.

Nevertheless this bonus point win was a significant one for Kirkcaldy, giving them an ideal start to the new National 2 campaign. Captain for the day prop George Mangalo, leading his team for the first time in his lengthy career, bubbled with enthusiasm after the match “Even with a few players absent for different reasons we have to be pleased with our performance, dominating the forward exchanges and defending strongly when necessary”.

HOWE OF FIFE 38 KIRKCALDY 24 (after extra time)

Perfect underfoot and overhead conditions greeted the new rugby season at Duffus Park with the first round of the BT National League Cup.

Kirkcaldy had early dominance in the set pieces and after a try had been chalked off for a knock on the returning Dayle Turner touched down in the 12th minute following a push over with Craig Letham converting.

The referee regularly pulled up both teams for ruck offences but Kirkcaldy continued to hold the upper hand territorially. Number 8 Matt Harvey excelled at this stage. Following a one handed line-out take he then strolled through the Howe defence to set up Turner for his second try in the 28th minute and give Kirkcaldy a 12-0 lead.

Monday, 08 May 2017
On Saturday 6th May 2017 Kirkcaldy Rugby club’s senior, ladies and colts 7s teams attended a sunny but breezy Duffus Park, Cupar for the annual Howe of Fife 7s tournament.

The seniors were drawn in a tough group alongside 2 Scots from Edinburgh and Morgan FP rugby club, the ladies pool contained Watsonians and Melrose and the colts had Howe B and Glenrothes to compete with. 

Due to several teams failing to turn up on time for the start the schedule had to be altered for the tournament giving Kirkcaldy seniors only 10 minutes to prepare for their first tie against 2 Scots.

7s Captain gets winners cup

Saturday 29th April 2017 saw a young Kirkcaldy 7s squad impressively win the annual Crieff 7s tournament.  With the average age of the players sitting at only 20 Kirkcaldy would be up against some experienced players and would have to play smart.  Guest teams from Falkirk, Stirling County, Dundee High School FP and Morrisons old boys were brimming with Premiership and National Division 1 players meaning the quality of rugby would be impressive.

Kirkcaldy were drawn in a group with Morrisons old boys and Perth but made a very rusty start to the tournament against Morrisons, going down to an early try before battling back to win by a conversion with the last kick of the match.  This woke the blues up a bit and their winning performance against a good Perth team showed some improvement.

Having won the group, the blues went through to the cup semi-finals where they would face Tommy’s Wolfhounds, a team made up of Stirling County players.  The Wolfhounds had strolled through their group and started very well against Kirkcaldy taking an early 7-point lead.
