Convincing Currie defeat Aberdeen Grammar 85-5 to stretch impressive unbeaten run to 14

Currie Chieftains made it 14 Tennent’s Premiership wins in a row with a thumping 85-5 win at Covid and injury hit Aberdeen Grammar yesterday.

The Edinburgh side travelled to Rubislaw top of the table with the hosts bottom, so an away triumph seemed likely, but they really turned on the style.

Charlie Brett, Gregor Hunter, Adam Hall and Rhys Davies bagged tries in the first half to give the Malleny Park men a four try bonus.

Nelson, Southern and Ramsay all scored their second tries before Davies did the same and Hamish Ferguson finished the rout.

They came out on top 28-17 at Musselburgh.

Third placed Edinburgh Accies made sure of a play-off place with a win.

Accies great home form this term continued as they saw off Selkirk 24-9 at Raeburn Place while Hawick are all but confirmed as being in the play-offs too.

Meanwhile, tributes have been paid to Watsonians secretary Iain ‘Stavvy’ Leslie who has passed away aged 59.
