Currie and Dumfries in U18 final

CURRIE and Dumfries will contest the National Youth Under-18 Cup final at Murrayfield a week today after success for both teams in their penultimate round matches yesterday.

Currie overcame a half-time deficit to win 22-10 at Aberdeen Grammar, scoring four tries after the interval from lock Calum Ormiston, winger Murray Halliday and prop Denis Pech (2) and a conversion from scrum half Joe Stachen.

"That was the best second-half performance I've seen from this team all season" said Currie manager, Bob Ormiston. "We controlled the game up front and everything seemed to click."
