Rugby: Preston Lodge just one victory away from East One title

Have your say

Paul VOY led the way with four tries as Preston Lodge’s amazing season continued on Saturday.

The East Lothian outfit have now scored over 100 tries during the campaign and collected more than 700 league points in just 14 matches after they defeated Forrester 73-0 at the Pennypit in RBS East One on Saturday. And it means that if they win at second-placed Duns this coming weekend they will be crowned champions.

As well as Voy’s quartet of scores, Darren Eales and Raymond Mackie both scored two apiece while Greg Leitch, Arran Hay, Dougie Naismith, Andrew Clark, and Blair Robertson also went over.

Portobello came back from 5-0 down at the break to win 10-5 at Trinity Accies and stay fourth. Chris Thomas scored the visitors’ try and Hamish Munro kicked five points.

Elsewhere in the division Lismore lost out 16-6 at home to Duns and are yet to win a match, Ross High and Berwick drew 15-15 and North Berwick were edged out 17-14 by Hawick Linden. In RBS East Two, which has now split into two sections, Dunbar once again got one over on Dalkeith 10-6 to remain top of the league now called East Two A. Hawick Harlequins beat Earlston, while East Two B has not started yet.

Leith still top RBS East Three after a 21-17 win at St Boswells with RDVC securing a 15-7 victory at Liberton.
