WATSONIANS ran riot against Stirling County on Saturday evening and Dom Coetzer played a key role a number of the nine tries scored on his way to being named man-of-the-match, so he is named at full-back ahead of Heriots’ Dan King this week.

Alongside him in the back-three is Myreisde team-mate Lomond MacPherson on the right wing and Thomas Glendinning on the left, who stepped up to the challenge of taking on a full-time pro side as part of the Ayrshire Bulls team which gave Glasgow Warriors a run for their money on Friday night.

Ronan Kerr‘s line-breaks for Boroughmuir Bears was important in setting the tone of their win over Heriot’s at Meggetand, so he partners the consistently classy Joe Reynolds of Watsonians.

Lee Millar is at stand-off having kicked 21 points for Watsonians with no misses, while an honourable mention is due to Will Hunt, who started off on Glasgow’s bench but came on for Bulls to score a try and kick two conversions. Jed Gelderbloom is handed the scrum-half slot ahead of Watsonian Murray Scott after an industrious 50 minutes for Heriot’s in their Meggetland loss.

Callum Smith was man-of-the-match for the Bears, showing up well in the tight and loose, which sees him edge ahead of Bulls’ Andrew Nimmo at loose-head prop. James Malcolm of the Bulls is at hooker and Michael Scott, also of Bulls, edges out Bobby Bratton of Watsonians at tight-head.

Jamie Berrisford, scoring his third try in four games for Watsonains, joins Ed Bloodworth of Bulls in the engine-room.

Try-scorer Josh King‘s power in the back-row for the Bears trumps the leadership of opposite number Ruaridh Leishman and the work-rate of Watsonian Seb Cecil in the battle for blindside selection, Campbell Wilson‘s 20 tackles for Watsonians gets him the openside slot, and the evergreen Craig Keddie thoroughly deserves his selection at No 8.

  1. Sorry but having watched all the games, Rory Jackson of the Bulls was unbelievable against the Warriors and head and shoulders above any other backrow over the weekend.Pro or semi pro!
