Highland Pounce On Weakened West of Scotland
By Peter Martin
Following defeats to Ayr and Stirling County, Highland travelled to West of Scotland looking for a big improvement.
West starting with only 15 were soon down to 14 following an injury. Highland struggled to get going and for the first ten minutes the game was competitive. Highland began to dominate possession and through good phase play and breaking the gain line soon began to accumulate tries and seven were scored by half-time. Carson kicked five conversions and was unlucky with the other two which hit the posts. Highland ran in a further eight tries in the second half and weren’t really tested in the match. Well done to Rory Mathieson who played his first game. Try scorers: Macpherson, Doherty (3), Kent (2), Dinnes, Smith (2), Carson, Maclean, Henry (2), Farrell.
