The St Leonards-Madras (SLM) Blues fixtures against Dunbar Grammar on Saturday, 1 September made for a strong start to the conference season, with the U13, U14, U16 and U18 boys welcoming the visiting teams to Station Park.
A good crowd was rewarded with a fantastic day of youth rugby, which saw the U18s secure a 27-14 victory. Some great running rugby and support play overcame the Dunbar defence.
Meanwhile, the U14s won their match 29-21, the U16s lost 43-10, and the U13s finished 30-25 up against the East Lothian side.
The SLM Blues U18 side secured another win away against North Berwick in their second match of the Grandis Conference. The boys were victorious against a strong opposition, securing a 45-12 win.
The U13s welcomed North Berwick to St Andrews, and with confidence building after the previous week's great win against Dunbar, they secured a 45-42 win against a very strong visiting side.
Next it was a tough away game for the U18 boys in their first Schools Cup match, with one of the Blues players stepping up to make up numbers for the Monifieth High/Carnoustie side. Congratulations to the Blues on a comfortable 45-12 win!
