St Leonards-Madras (SLM) Blues U18s welcomed The Edinburgh Academy to Station Park on a glorious spring morning – blue skies, sun shining, pitch perfect.
This was a season home finale for the boys and they produced their best rugby yet. The visiting Accies struggled when faced with the superb running lines and support play of SLM.
The home team’s scrum was dominant and laid the perfect platform for the fast, hard running back line. This was youth rugby at its finest, with SLM emerging as the eventual winners with a score of 59-24.
Meanwhile, it was also a great end to the season for the U13 and U14 boys, who played away at Edinburgh Academy. Two close matches, with the U13s losing narrowly and the U14s winning their game!
