MORAT 68 ABERDEEN GRAMMAR 1ND 0
Sat 17th Sep 2022
Following the disappointment of losing to the Raptors in their first league match of the season, Moray produced a strong performance and resoundingly defeated Aberdeen Grammar 2nds by 68 points to nil in their latest Tennentís Caledonia North Region League Division 2 fixture.

The Aberdeen side kicked off but it was Moray that immediately went on the attack. In the 4th minute, they took the lead. Ball was moved quickly wide from a scrum and wing Lewis Scott stepped inside his opposite number and made his way to the line. Full-back Rory Millar added the extras for 7-0.

Grammar tried to retaliate but strong defence was turned into attack in the 13th minute and play progressed to an attacking scrum 5. Scott stood on the open side but when ball was secured, he broke blind, received the ball and barged his way through 3 defenders to score. Millar add the conversion for 14-0.

The visitors rallied and produced some good continuity play but the
Elgin sideís defence was strong and stood firm.

In the 30th minute, the home side stretched their lead. The ball was moved quickly from a scrum on their own 22 and reached wing Lewis Hay who was only stopped when he made the opposition 22. Ball was recycled and moved wide left to centre Cameron Hughes and he made the line out wide. A superb kick by Millar from the touchline made it 21-0.

The bonus point try was scored in the 35th minute when after a good break by wing-forward Lewis Small, he offloaded inside to the supporting Millar who scored under the posts. He converted his own try for 28-0.

Moray made it a 35-0 half-time score when after a strong No 8 Calum Smith drive, the ball was moved to Millar who in contact returned it inside to supporting hooker and captain Marc Higgins to make the line. Millar added the conversion.

Grammar started the second half on the front foot, however, centre Connor McWilliam intercepted on his 22. He made ground before offloading to wing Cameron Preece who ran deep into the opposition half before shipping the ball to supporting stand-off Douglas Ireland to score. Millar added the extras for 42-0.

In the 53rd minute, a penalty took the home side to a line, 5 metres out. Clean ball was taken and driven. Smith peeled off the back of the maul and burst over the line to score with Millar adding the conversion for 49-0.

A similar penalty to a line-out 5 created the territory for the 8th try. This time the ball was moved wide left then returned to the right and a long pass over the heads by Ireland created the space for Millar to score. He added the extras for 56-0.

In the 68th minute, Scott added his third try of the day. A strong drive by Higgins in the 22 was set and recycled. The ball was moved quickly left for the wing to breach the defence and score. Millar added the 3 conversion points for 63-0.

A front peal, eight minutes from time and from an attacking 5 metre line-out, saw Smith gather the ball and barge his way over for his second try of the afternoon. The conversion kick by Millar, which would have made it a perfect 10 out 10, unfortunately came off the upright, then the crossbar and back on field leaving the final score at 68-0.

It had been a very good all round display by the Moray side built round a good defensive shift. This combined with a desire by both forwards and backs to run hard and keep the ball alive produced 10 tries and meant the supporters were treated to an exciting game of rugby.

This Saturday (tomorrow), Moray are away to North Police in the league.
