Jed reach Gala 7s final
Jed reached the final of Gala 7s yesterday but lost out to the hosts 28 - 19 in a pulsating final.
The sides were tied at 7 - 7 at half time after Grayson Hart had brought Gala level following Lewis Young's early intercept try. The game was played at a ridiculously high tempo and again Jed went in front when Gregor Young ran up the blind side for a great solo try. Gala scored again but Jed took the lead for a third time, sub Michael Weekley scored in the corner. Jed were tiring badly and two late tries from Ruairi Howarth the young Edinburgh development player who still plays for Gala gave the home side a deserved victory.
Both teams were dominant all day with Jed winning their group with wins over Melrose 27 - 14 and Watsonians 24 - 0. Another straightforward 32 - 14 win against Boroughmuir in the Semi set up the final against Gala who had scored over 40 points in all of their previous games.
