Moray 1st XV ran out comfortable 71 points to nil winners against Aberdeen University Medics in their latest BT Caledonia League Division 2 North fixture at Morriston last Saturday.

The Elgin side kicked off and within 4 minutes had taken a two try lead. The first, an unconverted try after only 2 minutes, was scored by wing Lewis Scott after the ball was moved wide following a number of driving phases in the 22.

The second was scored by full-back Callum Wright when he picked a good line in a backs move and broke the defence to score a try which he converted for 12-0.

In the 10th minute, the home side increased their lead.

A penalty gave them a great attacking line-out, 5 metres out. Clean ball was taken and after a couple of drives for the line, a penalty was awarded for hands in the ruck.

A quick tap was taken and moved to No 8 John Stuart who barged his way through the defence and scored. Wright added the extra points for 19-0.

The bonus point try came in the 21st minute. A strong scrum in the 22 was moved wide to Scott who made ground before offloading to centre Alex Stronach to make the line. Wright added the conversion points for 26-0.

Within two minutes it was 33-0 when after a big drive up the middle of the pitch, a long miss-pass reached wing Andrew McBean with room to beat the cover and score the try, again converted by Wright.

With eight minutes to half-time, the Uni side had a defending scrum, 5 metres from their line.

The Moray scrum had been strong but in this instance the visitors managed to get the ball back and partially clear.

The pressure was not off, however, as the home side progressed to an attacking scrum 5. Clean ball was hooked back to the feet of Stuart and a drive took the pack to the line where the big No 8 picked up and scored.

Wright added the conversion for 40-0, the half-time score.

The home side made a number of changes at half time and it took time for them to gel together and get back to the dominance they had in the first half.

During this period, most of the play was focussed in midfield with neither side making significant progress.

In the 64th minute, however, the Elgin side added to their tally.

Wing-forward Marc Higgins gathered a Medic over-throw at a line and he drove his way to the 5 metre line. A couple of driving phases later, replacement prop Joe McColl burst through and scored, a try that Wright converted for 47-0.

In a six minute spell from the 69th minute, relentless attack added four more tries to conclude the scoring.

Firstly, second-row John Westmacott pounced on a loose tap back at a line before making ground and offloading to the supporting wing-forward Ruaraidh Mackessack Leitch, who stepped inside the last defenders and scored an unconverted try.

The next saw Marc Higgins break before offloading to Scott, who in contact offloaded to prop Mark Taylor to score a try converted by Wright.

Thirdly, from the restart, a strong drive up the middle pulled in defenders at a ruck.

The ball was quickly moved wide to centre Ben Roberts who brushed aside a desperate tackle to score an unconverted try.

Finally, the Uni full-back tried to gather a prod through but knocked-on. Replacement stand-off Frankie Du Toit was quickly up and put boot to ball.

One more prod sent the ball towards the goal line and when the ball bounced up, he regathered and scored. Wright added the conversion points for a final score of Moray 1st XV 71 Medics 0.

It had been a very comprehensive display from the Moray side who had dominated the game from the off.

The forwards performed well in the tight and the loose and backs always looked threatening with ball in hand.

With the Six Nations resuming this weekend, Moray 1st XV's next league fixture is away to Highland 2nd XV on the 3rd March.
