Murrayfield Wanderers signed off with a 27-15 win at Lasswade. Tries from Barry Turnbull, Alex Cox and Stuart Gray, plus three conversions and two penalties by Chris Rhodes eased Wanderers into a comfortable lead and, although Dale Robertson touched down to give the hosts some hope, the Capital side held on for the win.
