LAST weekend, Crieff S1/S2s travelled to local rivals Perthshire to play their scheduled match. Crieff S1/S2s put on a determined performance to come out on top with a great win five tries to three.

Following the S1/S2s game, the Crieff U16 squad took to the field to plate the Caledonia Plate final against Strathmore on the Perthshire pitches as a neutral location.

The game was fascinating to watch with both sides showing some initial nerves, tries coming in fast and furious. Both teams showed great spirit but centre Robert Pryde was outstanding, troubling the entire Strathmore defence and running in 3 tries.

Full back Graham McGarey and his jinky runs, coupled with perfectly timed hand off lead to three tries before half time. All of the players really dug deep.

Mark Caskie fronting up to the other forwards, Findlay Watson playing the game of his season on the wing with some great breaks and Captain Sandy Fraser leading by example and taking the play to the opposition. Half time saw Crieff leading with the narrow margin of 26 points to 22.

The second half saw Crieff secure their lead and step up the anti with superb handling amongst the backs division.

The passing was a credit to the team and the team play and off-loads made the difference between the two teams. The Second half saw further tries by Connaboy, Murchie, Grieve and McGarey. The final score 58 to 34 to Crieff.

Crieff Minis P5 to P7 were away to Dunfermline for a tournament. The P5 team were undefeated but came in as runners up for the tournament, based on a try count.

Overall, a fabulous weekend for Crieff and a real credit to the kids, senior players and the coaches who have enjoyed their rugby from Braidhaugh all season.
