Clydebank 34

Cumnock 12

CLYDEBANK 1st XV won their 4th game in a row against Cumnock and scored five tries to secure a bonus point - rising up to 4th in the West Division 2 league table.

Joe Moore opened the scoring from a driving maul and he touched down to take his tries for the season to 10, an impressive number from second row.

Cumnock replied soon after when they broke from a scrum and quickly recycled the ball and bullied their way through the Bank defence from short range.

Both teams had a man sent to the sin bin for some handbags in midfield and Clydebank used the extra space better with a lovely try.

They hit it hard up the middle through Baxter, then released the backs with a miss behind pass to free up Jack Kirkwood, and he dived over in the left corner for the try of the day.

Jack McCombe added a penalty from close range and it was 15-5 at half time.

The game was in the balance when Cumnock scored early in the second half to close the gap to three points but the Red and Blacks rallied and put the game to bed with three tries.

Ali Smart bulldozed his way through several tackles to score.

Robert Parr made a break and had full back David McLintock in support to finish off.

Miller then counter attacked from a long Cumnock kick and took the ball into the Cumnock 22 and scrum half James McCormack dummied and went himself - evading the defence to score his first try for the club right on the final whistle.

The win means Clydebank go to 4th in the league above McLaren on points difference and can catch Cumnock if results go their way.
