Lismore v Dalkeith
DALKEITH HIT THE GROUND RUNNING
Back to league action after the 6-Nations break, Dalkeith still sit second in the league and coach Jim Slight was keen that the side kept up the momentum as the season draws to it’s conclusion. Lismore RFC had switched the game over the road to Double Hedges due to the continuing work at their own ground.
Dalkeith v Edinburgh Uni Blues
Dalkeith welcomed Edinburgh University to Kings Park, for the second fixture in this year’s SRU Shield competition.
Dalkeith v Earlston
Dalkeith welcomed Earlston RFC to Kings Park on league business, with the home side hopeful of maintaining their positive start to the season, which sees them still sit atop East League 2, with a game in hand.
Dalkeith v Lismore
Dalkeith welcomed near neighbours Lismore RFC to Kings Park on league business, with the home side keen to eradicate last week’s poor performance, that had seen them drop off top spot in the table.
Forrester v Dalkeith
Dalkeith’s successful start to the league season has been built on a disciplined approach on the pitch and playing to their strengths. The team’s latest performance in Saturday’s fixture against Forrester RFC lacked both and the home team took full advantage to take Dalkeith’s unbeaten record and to drop them to fourth in the league, albeit with a game in hand.
Dalkeith v Hawick Quins
Dalkeith welcomed league leaders Hawick Harlequins to Kings Park, hoping that last week’s cancelled fixture had not left the home side short of match practise. Montgomery was still unavailable, but Hamilton returned to the back row and Graham was back in the boiler room.
Dalkeith v Ross High
Still unbeaten Dalkeith welcomed East Lothian visitors, Ross High, to Kings Park on the third league weekend of East 2. Montgomery was returning to the side after a fractured eye-lash and Duke was also a welcome sight in the back row, with Ross also returning from the Royal Marines for what will hopefully be an extended stay.
Trinity Accies v Dalkeith
After last week's impressive opening league win, Dalkeith visit Trinity Accies, with coach Slight was still far from fielding his favoured XV, with a whole first choice back row missing and Walker and Young likely to be long term absentees. However the team was buoyed by the return of the Hamilton brothers and Brady for their first games and Graham was available for second row duties.
Dalkeith v Hawick Linden
Dalkeith welcomed Hawick Linden RFC to Kings Park for the opening league game of the season. With no new faces the team taking the field was virtually per last season, if missing a couple of injured regulars, the significant change being that Jim Slight had now taken over the coaching reins.
