Gordonians 2nd XV Secure 13 Try Win Over Moray 2s

Jolly Boys Backs Run Riot in Elgin

The Jolly Boys travelled to Elgin on Saturday to face new opposition in Moray 2nd XV. Along with the regular faces in the squad, Daryl Neill continued his comeback while debutant students Ethan Telfer and Teddy Truby also made the journey north.

The team got off to a rapid start with Ciaran Marshall going over in the corner a few minutes in, Tom Keddari slotting the conversion from the touchline. This proved to be the only try from the forward pack all afternoon with conditions being perfectly suited to the Jolly Boys expansive running game. Both wingers were next to get on the scoresheet with Simon Orr and Mike Tindal both crossing in the corners. Moray tried to establish a foothold in the game using their sizeable pack but the Gordonians line held firm, Daryl Neill making his presence felt with some trademark crippling hits. Ethan Telfer was among the scorers as the Jolly Boys secured the bonus point and then further extended their lead in the run up to half time, before a heroic defensive effort held out a fine Moray attack meaning the score stood 0-39 at half time.

Moray 2s rang the changes at half time to good effect, with several big runners forcing the Jolly Boys to defend for the first 10 minutes of the 2nd half. However, when they finally got their hands on the ball the Jolly Boys were not prepared to sit on their lead and continued to find space on the edges. Simon Orr repeatedly showed great pace as he ran in several tries to take his personal tally to 5 for the afternoon, while Harry Loakman, Seb Davies and Connor 'Judas' McWilliam also crossed.

Full time: Moray RFC 2nd XV 0 - 75 Gordonian RFC 2nd XV

Despite the scoreline credit must be given to Moray 2s who continued to work very hard all afternoon, especially up front, and they were unfortunate not to get a consolation score but this was unquestionably down to the determination shown by the Jolly Boys defence to not concede despite the healthy lead. We look forward to welcoming them to Countesswells in the new year.

In a strong all round performance in which several players made a big impact, Aberdeen Standard Investments Man of the Match was awarded to Simon Orr for his 5 try haul.
