Match Report

Re-scheduled from 6th December due to Hillhead/Jordanhill travel issues, this was a must win for Jed. 

The conditions were perfect and Jed raced to the perfect start when Ross Coombe darted in for the first try after 3 miutes, Danny Ritchie converted. Hills are struggling this season and you could see why. There was no communication behind the posts and there was a look of early resignation amongst their ranks. Greig Walker was quick to take advantage and he tip toed through some woefull tackling to score Jed's second try after 6 minutes, Ritchie converted. Robbie Shirra-Gibb scored a brace of tries in the score board corner and Ritchie, on form with the boot, converted both. Jed were in complete control and Donald Grieve scored next,then Shirra-Gibb completed his hat-trick after only 34 minutes.Ross Coombe completed the first half scoring with his second try on the stroke of half time. HT 45 - 0

The second half started slowly but Michael Weekley found himself on the wing and scored an easy try in front of the kop. Donald Grieve scored the next 2 tries with his hat-trick coming from a push over try in the 64th minute. Jessie Krafft was now kicking and he converted the first of Don's tries. Jed were ringing the changes but that didn't stop Weekley loitering on the wing and he scored again in front of the kop. Ross Coombe completed the thrid hat-trick of the day before super sub Szkud's scored Jed's lucky 13th try of the day. Andrew Thomson scored his first try for Jed to complete the try scoring. Krafft converted to give him 4 second half conversions. FT 88 - 0.

This moves Jed up to 9th but next week we go to Edinburgh to play 3rd placed Stewarts Melville.

Summary. 14 tries. 3 hat-tricks and 9 conversions.
