Rugby: Lasswade still looking Sharp

LASSWADE kept up their promotion push in rugby's Scottish Hydro National Two with a comfortable 41-3 victory at Caithness.

Winger Gavin Sharp bagged a hat-trick of tries while centre James Elliot weighed in with two in Thurso to leave the Midlothian men in third place after their first run out in seven weeks.

Prop Craig Adam was also on the scoresheet and was later named man of the match.

Lasswade had been helped in their preparations for the long trip north by a training session with Premier One pacesetters Currie last week and president Ian Barr said: "That training session was important because it was a tough one for the boys and helped them get their match fitness back after such a long time without a fixture. The team played well against Caithness. It was a solid victory."
