Match Report Schools' Cup: Dalriada v RBAI



Saturday February 8th 2014.

Match Report by Matthew Young

In tough conditions and on a pitch that had been subject to the poor weather conditions of the last week, the physical Dalriada XV delivered a performance to be proud of but it was not enough to defeat the strength of the RBAI team who won 14:7. 

The Dalriada forwards pressed hard in the first half, leading to their team conceding only 7 points when it came to the interval.

RBAI's first points came from a quick tap penalty taken by Cameron Black which saw the RBAI second row Harry Cleland charge over the line for the first points of the half. The try successfully converted by RBAI outhalf Fraser Wright. 

An impressive performance from the Dalriada 9 and 10 kept the RBAI defence constantly under threat. The Inst forwards did well to defend the constant forward attack from dalriada in the tough conditions. 

The Dalriada blindside flanker did very well in the line out securing vital possession in key phases of the first half, allowing his team to increasing their attacking threat and testing the RBAI defence. However he was injured in the build up to the first inst try, forcing a substitution. 

Dalriada had significant success with their driving maul forcing RBAI to step up their physicality in order to contain them. 

They managed to retain good territory with much of the second half being played in the mud soaked area of the RBAI half. 

The harsh conditions played their toll on Andrew McGaths throwing in the line out which flawed an otherwise solid performance, culminating in a good try from a pick and go on the Dalriada 5 meter line late in the second half to secure the lead for RBAI. 

The Dalriada men refused to be disheartened and showed what they were capable of with a brilliant up and under kick by the Dalriada 10 followed up with a superb take by the 13, leading to Dalriada securing 7 points and closing the gap between themselves and their rivals.
