Dyce's unbeaten 2019 roll comes to an end

Match report by Callum Robertson

The competitive rugby season got underway at Central Park, Dyce with the home team being drawn against Moray Rugby Club in the Caledonia Bowl competition. Dyce went into the game as underdogs and were light on numbers for a full squad but were looking to put up tough competition for the visiting team.

Moray kicked off and controlled possession straight away but Dyce’s defence was tight, they eventually picked up a try after a few phases off crash ball before the scrum half passed the ball to the Moray fly half and ran it over the line. He converted his own try. 10 minutes into the game Dyce received a penalty and David Hay converted from a fair distance out, it making the score 3-7. The away team went onto score another try from line out then shipping it wide with the conversion being converted. Soon after a ball pinged off one off the home players hands straight to Moray player and they ran in another try. Dyce were coming more into the game with some good passing and attacking phases and their perseverance paid off as in the closing moments of the first half two off the best looking forwards rugby has seen (Callum Robertson and Graeme Lowe), made a good run from the Moray 22. With an excellent offload from Graeme Lowe to Callum Robertson, the #8 beat 3 defenders in the wide channel to dot the ball down in the corner. No. 10 David Hay made an excellent kick from out wide to add the extras from the tricky conversion.

HT: Dyce RFC 10-19 Moray RFC

Moray continued to pile on the pressure and scoring from a 5 metre scrum and adding another conversion. Dyce showed some really good attacking play but couldn’t keep the ball long enough to do something with it. Moray scored another try from a turn over before running it over the line.

FT: Dyce RFC 10-40 Moray RFC

MoTM- Callum Robertson/Jamie Fraser

The home team played well against higher opposition and look to take in the momentum to next week's Tennent's Caledonia league 4 North opener against the Aberdeen Uni Medics.
