END OF WEEKEND SUMMARY.
17 Nov, 2019
SATURDAY UPDATE: THE 1ST XV SCORE A 5 POINTER
The 1st XV get their 1st home win of the season as they beat Strathendrick 27-17 at Violetbank. It was a scrappy match with the Annan lads trying to play a high tempo match but too often a knock on or a missed move kept the score down.
Annan scored 4 great tries though with Strathendrick keeping themselves in the hunt though through the boot and a solitary try.
The Annan tries came from Neal Coupland (2). a first try for the 1st XV for Winger James Park and another try from Mens Scottish Rugby’s try of the month winner Ryan Hetherington
Always good to get a 5 point win though and it keeps Annan a few more points off the bottom of the table. The lads now have another home match on Saturday when they host 3rd placed Lenzie.
Then the following Saturday, the big match of the season when they travel to Stewartry for the 2nd leg of the Chisholm Cup
