As the season draws to a close, GHA welcomed Watsonians to Braidholm in the final home game of the season. The Edinburgh men remain in a tight race for promotion and a win was a must if they were to retain their hopes of playing Premiership rugby next season.

The opening exchanges were fast and frantic with both sides playing a high tempo game. GHA’s Scott Carson scored the first try of the afternoon after some stellar build up play and sustained pressure on the visitor’s try line from the GHA pack.

However, GHA were unable to maintain the momentum as a number of mistakes were to prove costly for the remainder of the half. Watson’s scored 4 trys to go in at the break with a 28 to 5 lead.

The second period was a tighter affair if a little lacking in quality. GHA pulled themselves back into it, as left wing Euan Greer finished off in fine fashion after another well worked score. But, to the frustration of the GHA support, Watsonians were not made to work quite as hard for their 5 point efforts, although there was plenty of commitment displayed from the men in green and red.

Euan Greer scored a second, a carbon copy of his first with a muscular finish in the left hand corner. In the end, a disciplined performance for the away team gave them a deserved bonus point victory although GHA will be frustrated with a number of errors that prevented them from putting Watsonians under more pressure on the score board.
