Rugby round-up: Leaders Dalkeith slay Langholm

Have your say

BT East One leaders Dalkeith made up for last week’s loss by putting Langholm to the sword on Saturday and scoring 104 points in the process.

The Midlothian men had lost their unbeaten record to Linlithgow last time out, but were never in any danger against the Borderers.

Andy Hamilton and Paul Clugston both scored try hat-tricks to lead the 104-14 rout with seven other players also bagging tries.

North Berwick are still in second place and at the weekend they took the bragging rights in East Lothian when they defeated Dunbar 36-3. Liam West, who is on form at the moment, scored two tries for NB with Gus Elder, Murray West and Nick Lekkas also bagging tries in the bonus-point victory. 
Linlithgow’s decent run continued when they toughed out a 27-24 win at Portobello and they are fourth in the table.

In BT East Two, St Boswells continue to lead the way and look unstoppable. On Saturday they came to the Capital and defeated Leith 93-7.

Forrester are doing their best to keep up and they defeated Inverleith 25-10 at Arboretum.

Edinburgh Northern got the better of Liberton 22-18 with Trinity Accies defeating 
Lismore 45-0 and Callum Tait, Steven Cunningham and Simon Horrell scoring tries as Penicuik saw off Earlston 15-10.

Broughton, Ross High and RDVC all clocked up wins in BT East Three. Ross High are top on points difference from Broughton and it promises to be quite a tight division.
