On Saturday Clydebank 2nd XV attempted to cease Hills 2A’s undefeated run this season, they failed. Since March the 2A’s juggernaut has kept rolling.
In a scrappy first half Clydebank got the first score with a penalty in front of the posts kicked with relative ease. This would be the last time Clydebank would lead the match. The first try came from fly half Sean Smith putting the winger from the west, Shane “the hurricane” MacCormick in the corner with a text book execution of a two on one. After missing a difficult conversion the next score would fall to the hat trick hero Joe Robson. There could have been a greater lead by half time but a pass drifted forward and Shane was denied his second score of the day.
Then second half try fest made the result seem less certain. Clydebank enjoyed more success at lineout time and their catch a drive proved a potent weapon. After a few missed tackles they were awarded a try but Hills 2A’s had strength to call on from the bench. Making their debut, Ben Chaddock, steadied the ship with a well taken try from distance. Joe Robson found space out wide to add to his tally.
A couple of mistakes and a fortunate interception try for the home team made the scores 20 – 26 in favour of Hills but another try from Joe Robson and Sean Smith put the gloss on an impressive attacking performance.
