Both Clydebank Rugby Club teams recorded their first away wins of the season as the 1st XV won 33-15 at Cumbernauld and the 2nd XV won 20-19 at Cumnock.

The 1st XV are now up to third in West Division 2. They began strongly and soon had two tries on the board within 10 minutes.

Graeme Kyle opened the scoring from short range that was unconverted and bagged his second with a sweeping counter attack move.

After a messy scrum, the ball was hacked on by Cumbernauld but Jack Burgoyne picked up and made the initial yards and the ball was fed out to David Warden who was stopped just short of the line.

The ball was quickly recycled and Kyle dummied and dived over and Jack McCombe made no mistake with the extras.

Cumbernauld regrouped and played a simple game plan using their forwards. However, they were restricted to penalty shots at goal and their stand off Reid missed two kicks but was successful with one.

The game became bogged down between each team’s 22 and Bank lost attacking cohesion, but led 12-3 at half time.

Clydebank were keen to wrap up the game and secure the bonus point early in the second period. Within 15 minutes, Kyle got his hat-trick of tries when he finished off some strong forward play down the left hand side. McCombe again converted.

From the restart the bonus point was secured in sensational style. Connor Sloss collected the kick with a classy one handed pick up and started the Red and Blacks attack.

The ball was quickly moved out to McCombe who scythed through the home midfield defence and Robert Parr was on his shoulder to collect the final pass and he sprinted away to scored under the posts that McCombe converted.

Bank then took the foot off the gas and Cumbernauld replied with two scores of their own.

In the final moments, David Warden ran in uncontested to score the final try of the match that was converted.

At Cumnock,Clydebank opened the scoring with some nice build up play by the forwards and the ball went through every backs’ hands to Logan Cope on the left wing. The try was unconverted.

Cumnock replied with a converted try to take a slender two-point advantage.

Michael Crerand then made a breakaway run that Colin Newman was first to react to with great support and he scored in the corner, again unconverted.

Cumnock scored quickly to regain the lead at 12-10 at half time.

The home side soon extended their lead to 19-10 with a converted try but Bank staged a spirited fightback.

With ten minutes left on the clock, Callum Smith picked up from back of a scrum and bolted away to score.

The Bank forwards then won a lineout on Cumnock’s throw and after a couple of phases Andy Lyle popped up to score the winning try.

Next weekend sees the 1st XV host Lenzie and the 2nds have a free weekend.
