Heriot’s 58 - 15 Watsonians: Home side too hot to handle

Heriot’s lost the season opener to the same opposition but duly got revenge in a hopelessly one-sided game at Goldenacre.

For the reigning champions to lose one match may have been unfortunate but when Heriot’s lost two in succession it looks a little careless.
