There was a double header for East Kilbride Pirates at Hamilton Rugby Club on 25th June,

The under 19 team played first, continuing their rivalry against the excellent organisation from Inverness area, the Highland Wildcats. The visitors had travelled with a limited number of players and though they had some success, they scored the first points EK have conceded this year, they were well beaten in the end. The final score was Pirates 30 Wildcats 12.

The Pirates senior team faced Merseyside Nighthawks with both sides in the chase for the second play off place in the Premier North division.

It started looking like a close game. The Nighthawks scored a touchdown on their opening posession only for the Pirates to equalise on their next series. From there though it was Merseyside who took the dominant position. EK managed a second TD in the third quarter but the Nighthawks had scored eight times by the end and were comfortable winners by 45-14.
