Ex-Champions suffer yet another defeat

By Michael McLintock

Boroughmuir fell to their 3rd consecutive at the weekend against their Glasgow rivals.

‘Muir lost 21-17 to fierce Glasgow Hawks in a close match where one try could have turned everything on it’s head. ‘Muir went down by ten points within ten minutes, Fergus Pringle, Head Coach said “immediately we were on the back foot”

The ‘Muir team, that is already loaded with injuries, had a team put together only two days before the game. Youngster Nick Fraser was thrown into the starting line up, with only one previous first team start under his belt. However the new boy played very well.

After the game, Pringle commented that “Basic errors lost us the game, tackling and passing was the biggest fault”

“The most frustrating element is that their is definitely a good team in there, but at the moment they are struggling to break out”

Boroughmuir seem to be missing certain key players, such as ex-Captain Angus Martyn who suffered a knee injury in pre-season training, the South-African is expected to be out for the remainder of the season.
