RHC Cougars 1st XV -v- Perthshire
13th September 2014
Cougars win well away from home
A warm sunny afternoon greeted the 1st XV to North Inch against a Perthshire side who’d lost to Lasswade in the first game out in a hard fought contest. RHC knew it would be a tough afternoon of rugby.
All of the early exchanges were dominated by Perthshire who held the vast majority of possession. RHC defended stoically, tackles being made and often forcing Perthshire well back beyond the gain line. RHC eventually coughed up a penalty to give Perthshire a 3 – 0 lead with about ten minutes gone.
As soon as RHC managed to get some possession they immediately showed what they could do with ball in hand, attacking both wide and in the tight, after a break down the right, Drew Hicks crashed up the short side and the ball was quickly recycled to Paul Strachan, who stepped inside the defence and reached out to get the ball over the line for the first try of the game......read more by clicking here
RHC Cougars Womens XV -v- Stirling
14th September 2014
This Sunday RHC Cougars Ladies went away to Stirling County, both sides keen to bounce back from first round defeats in the Premiership League. After a close first half RHC found their rhythm and sped to a solid 29-3 win over the Stirling side.
The game opened up in Stirling’s favour, as a barnstorming forwards pack made things difficult for the scrambling Cougars defence. The pressure told and RHC failed to retain possession, losing the ball to impressive Stirling rucking time and time again.
Extended possession eventually told and Stirling spent the first ten minutes of the match firmly in the opposition half, eventually forcing a breakdown penalty and slotting an easy kick from between the posts to go 3-0 up......read more by clicking here
