Strathie Sharks Under-16s travelled to Montrose a week past Sunday for their first game of the new season.
Although they were well beaten in the end, this was a good performance in their first game together. Montrose were more determined and clinical at the break down which give them the upper hand throughout the game and this proved to be the difference between the two sides.
Strathies set piece was excellent winning their line out’s and scrums which is very encouraging considering this is a young team. The Sharks defence worked hard and with some heroic tackling which included try saving tackles from new recruit Dylan McKenzie. Captain Macauley Holgate led by example with him and Dean Farquharson scoring a brace of tries each and Jack Wilson adding the conversions.
