Match Report
Super Saturday  began with Jed-Forest taking on Watsonians in an entertaining game played on a sunny Riverside in front of a big home support.  The home side scored first when Robert Hogg broke through weak tackling to score an unconverted try. This was quickly followed by the visitors when after 10 minutes back row Coles scored a converted try, then as the visiting pack took control number 8 Miller scored a converted try after 14 minutes. Jed then held control of the ball for a time when a break from Lewis and Gregor then passed wide to Connor Hogg who made a 40 metre break which included selling an outrageous dummy to their winger before sending in Rory Marshall for a try in the corner which was converted by Mein.  This was quickly followed by a try for Gregor Young after 25 minutes. Jed were enjoying the majority of the ball and territory and on the stroke of half time scored the bonus point try when Mein gave a huge miss pass to Shirra-Gibb to score the easiest of tries in front of the Cop supporters,  converted by Mein.
Half time Jed-Forest 24 – Watsons 14
The visitors made some inspired changes at half time and started the half strongly, their forward pack taking the ball to Jed at every opportunity however it was the home team that scored first after a well struck penalty by Mein extended the Jed lead. A purple patch for the visiting back row allowed Neary to score, then replacements Drummond and McKirdy with three quick tries after 11, 18 and 24 minutes, King could only convert the latter. Watsonians were now well in the driving seat and a penalty by Mein could only reduce the visitors leadand it was King that had the last say with a penalty after 39 minutes to make the final score 30 – 34 to Watsonians.
