Beat Highland 15 - 10

Congratulations to Jed Thistle who successfully retained the U18 national youth cup at Murrayfield this afternoon.

The Thistle led 8 - 0 at half time from try by Captain Craig Cowan and a Robbie Yourstoun penalty.

Gary Munro scored just after the break thanks to a great run from Rory Marshall to make it 15 - 0. Highland hit back soon after to make it 15 - 5. There were no further scores until Highland scored in the last minute but it was too late and the Thistle hung on to a 15 - 10 win.

This is a great result for this group of players who also won the Schools U16 Plate competition 2 years in a row.
