Have your say

Calum CHAMPION scored two tries to help move Dunbar closer to the RBS East 2 title at the weekend with a 39-10 win over Gala YM.

Dunbar went 13-3 up on their home turf at Hallhill thanks to a try from Gary Peebles – who beat two men after receiving the ball to go over the line – and the boot of skipper Jamie Peters.

The visitors reduced the arrears, but before the interval the East Lothian men scored their second converted try of the afternoon. This time the scorer was Champion. Dunbar pulled further ahead in the second half with Champion’s second and further tries from James Kelly and Steve Bissett.

The day got even better for Dunbar when they learnt that second-placed Dalkeith had lost 29-20 at Earlston while Broughton also lost 31-22 at home to Hawick Harlequins.

In RBS East One it is now nine wins from nine for Preston Lodge after they clocked up a 50-0 victory at Hawick Linden. Portobello defeated Duns 14-13. RBS East 3 leaders Edinburgh Northern won 66-3 at Queensferry.
