Heriot Watt Uni v Edinburgh University Predators
This BUCS Scottish/Northern 2A game at Peffermill on 14th February was a revenge match. Two weeks earlier Heriot Watt, playing in their first season, put a big dent in the Predators play-off hopes when they beat them 21-0. This time Edinburgh Uni were the top team. A 6-0 half time lead was increased when the Predators ran back the second half kick off for a touchdown. Heriot Watt then pulled one back to keep the game close but in the dying minutes Edinburgh put the game away, capitalising on HW mistakes and running in two more TDs.

Final score: Heriot Watt 6, Edinburgh 25.
