Scotland v England KnightsScotland’s second game in this years Alitalia Euro Cup competition brought England’s second team – The Knights – to Meggetland on 28th October. After they thrashed Ireland the previous weekend it seemed likely that the English would dominate this game. It was probably a surprise therefore when Scotland opened the scoring with a try after only a couple of minutes. It was less surprising that the English replied with a quick three tries of their own.  In the end England won comfortably and came away with the Euro Cup trophy, but the final score of 62-24 shows that the Scotland team were able to compete strongly throughout the game.

It’s exactly a year until Scotland start their World Cup campaign with a game against Tonga in Workington. Scoring four tries against the Knights should be a boost to their confidence.

Linda Clement in action for GroveThe top two sides in Scottish ladies hockey were in action in the southside of Glasgow on 27th October.

First up, Clydesdale Western were at home to newly promoted Inverleith at Titwood. The Western girls were clearly the stronger team and built up a 4-0 lead by half time. With a trip to Dundee to play Grove the next day, they eased off in the second half, and added only one more goal to secure a 5-0 victory.

Across the fence in Hutchesons Grammar School, the reigning champions Grove Menzieshill came down from Dundee to play Giffnock. On paper this should have been a closer game, but Grove showed why they are the top rated side, as they stretched a 3-0 half time lead to 10-0 by the final whistle.
