Despite the convincing win, this was a case of job done rather than good job.

GHA made a shaky start when a fortunate bounce of the ball allowed the Perthshire centre to race over from the half way with the game only moments old. Perthshire’s other score came immeditaley after half time when GHA failed to claim the kick off and the ball once again bounced kindly for a Perthsire player to race in under the posts.

Aside from these two incidents, GHA were dominant throughout but put in a below par performance, with only occasional spells of good play that kept the score board ticking over. In all, GHA notched 10 tries in total from Craig Sorbie (2), John Brogan (2), Andrew Henderson (2), Dominic Dunn, Alan Auld and Ross McClymont with John Brogan hitting 6 conversions.

GHA have won 6 games in succession in 2012, all of which with a 4 try bonus point and they now go into the final two games, both against league leaders Howe of Fife, knowing that they need to win both if they are to claim the league championship. The first leg of this double header is away in Cupar on April 7th where GHA must win in order to bring it all down to the final game of the season at Braidhom on April 14th.
