Watsonians 16 - 5 Heriot’s: Myreside men enjoy Friday night lights

Watsonians moved into the top four of the Tennent’s Premiership after outmuscling their capital rivals in a hard-fought affair under the lights at Myreside last night. Both sides tried to play their hallmark running rugby, but ultimately it was the quality of the home defence in an extended spell on the back foot in the first half that proved the key to their success.

Edinburgh Accies 12 - 71 Heriot’s

Heriot’s maintained their perfect start to the season with a third successive bonus-point win over an Accies side that simply had no answer to the all-round power of the Goldenacre outfit.

Heriot’s hold their nerve to edge capital thriller

Anyone at Goldenacre on Saturday afternoon might wonder what all the Super 6 fuss is about. Two good teams displayed oodles of attacking intent and plenty of skill in executing it in front of a healthy crowd on a superb surface. It was one of those rare days in rugby when both team’s offence had the better of the defence. Any side that could hold on to the ball for any length of time seemed destined to score.
