Currie 21 - 24 Ayr: Second half makes all the difference

Ayr will not give up their title easily. There were times earlier in the season when even a place in the play-offs was in jeopardy, and times in this Premiership semi-final when they were just clinging on. But they got there in the end, and travel to the Greenyards for the final in two weeks with their morale as high as it has been since the memorable day last spring when they were crowned champions at that very venue.

Ayr 12 - 14 Currie: Missed kicks prove costly for home side

In the end, it came down to two missed goal kicks by Scott Lyle for the home side, but, the truth is, Currie were a long way more than two points ahead of their hosts in winning this match. Only in the set scrums were Ayr the better side and, but for a some dropped balls, the visitors might well have been out of sight by the break.
