Watsonians 15-27 Dundee High

Watsonians v Dundee HSFP
3 April 2015

Watsonians kicked off on a soft pitch, with little wind, and won possession, but Dundee countered out of defence. A kick by Harry Millar was well collected by Duncan Leese, taking Dundee well into the Watsonians’ half and when the home side was penalised, Harry Millar obliged with a penalty goal. 4 minutes played and Dundee had a lead which they never lost.

The even spell which followed featured strong running by Watsonians and sound defence by Dundee until an exchange of kicks ended with a Dundee line-out in the Watsonians 22. With Dundee pressing, a cross-field kick was gathered by Matt O’Sullivan who crossed for a try, well converted by Harry Millar. 19 minutes gone and Dundee were ahead 0-10.

Watsonians exerted a spell of pressure, which the Dundee defence absorbed, aided by a dominant set scrum. Eventually a Dundee attack took play into the home 22 and when Watsonians were penalised, Harry Millar obliged with a second penalty goal, to extend Dundee’s lead: 0-13 after 34 minutes.

With half-time imminent, and Watsonians driving, Dundee were penalised on their 22 and Watsonians kicked to touch 5 metres out. The line-out was won and the ball driven over the Dundee line for an unconverted try by Jonathan Golden.

Half-time: Watsonians 5 Dundee 13

A good first half for Dundee, with defence and set scrum strong. Intelligent kicking was the advice for the second period.

Watsonians were the first to show after the resumption and when Dundee were penalised in front of the posts, some 30 metres out, Andrew Chalmers made no mistake for Watsonians and his penalty goal made it 8-13 after 2 minutes of the half.

Unsuccessful penalty goal attempts by both stand-offs meant no further scoring and another even spell and 54 minutes had passed before the next score. After some strong bursts by Dundee, the ball was fed to Blair Cochrane for a score which Harry Millar converted, to extend the lead: 8-20.

Dundee were soon back in the Watsonians 22 , and when Watsonians kicked from defence, the ball was run back at pace by Dundee, with Matt O;Sullivan and Duncan Leese featuring, until the supporting Blair Cochrane touched down for his second try, which was again converted by Harry Millar. 8-27 after 59 minutes.

Watsonians were still running the ball well, but Dundee’s defence was remaining solid, although a series of penalties and a yellow card suspension were not aiding their cause, enabling Watsonians were able to launch a series of drives into the Dundee red zone.

Eventually Watsonians elected for a scrum after a penalty offence n,ear the Dundee line, and when the ball was moved, stand-off Andrew Chalmers broke through for a try which he converted, reducing the lead. 15-27 with 8 minutes remaining.

Aided by further penalties against Dundee, Watsonians maintained the majority of possession as the game entered the final stages, extended by a number of injury stoppages, but there was to be no further scoring and a satisfactory victory for Dundee resulted, even though the significant bonus point try eluded them.
Full time: Watsonians 15 Dundee 27

A satisfying victory for Dundee after the disappointment of the capitulation in the earlier fixture at Mayfield. Although Watsonians had the majority of possession, an 8-1 second half penalty advantage, and ran the ball well and at pace, Dundee’s defence excelled.

Tries: Cochrane (2), O’Sullivan

Cartha QP 29-26 Dundee Titans

Cartha QP 2nd XV v Dundee Titans
4 April 2015

On a heavy pitch, Dundee kicked off and were first on the attack, exerting early pressure in the Cartha 22. A drive to 2 metres out led to a Cartha scrum, but Dundee pushed them off the ball, allowing Stuart Barlow to pick from the base and score. 4 minutes gone and Dundee were ahead for a try converted by Finn Murphy, 0-7.

In only another 3 minutes, the lead was extended, when Callum Bowie pounced on a loose Cartha ball to scamper 40 metres for a try which Finn again converted. Dundee ahead 0-14 after only 7 minutes.

Handling errors were preventing a free-flowing game, but Dundee remained on top until Cartha gained the Dundee half for the first time, after some 18 minutes of the game. Penalty offences were preventing Dundee from capitalising on their early dominance and when Cartha gained touch 8 metres from the Dundee line from a penalty kick, a planned move round the front of the line-out led to their first score, an unconverted try which made it 5-14 after 27 minutes.

Dundee hit back from the re-start and were soon attacking in the Cartha 22. The ball was worked clear well and Fergus Wallace exploited a gap to burst through for a try which Finn again converted. 29 minutes gone and Dundee ahead 5-21.

Cartha won possession from their kick-off but handling errors led to a Dundee scrum. The feed was adjudged not straight and a quick free kick was taken by Cartha, who handled the ball left leading to a score in the corner, which was not converted. 29 minutes gone and the score was 10-21.

Handling errors and penalty offences were preventing any concerted periods of play until, on the stroke of half time, a break by the Cartha 13 found their full back in support and the try under the posts led to an easy conversion, reducing Dundee’s lead to 4 points.

Half-time: Cartha QP 17 Dundee Titans 21

A great start by Dundee, but lack of cohesion and consistency had let Cartha back into the game. Harder work in the second half, aimed at tiring the home pack, was the half-time encouragement.

In the event, it was Cartha who were the more dominant in the second half, but handing errors and penalties by both sides were preventing any spells of flowing play and, in the event, it was Dundee who came closest to scoring next. A fine kick into space by Finn Murphy gave Dundee an attacking opportunity. When Cartha cleared, a good break by Finn led to the ball being passed to Adam Lowrie, but a tackle in the act of scoring saw the ball spilled.

After Cartha kicked a penalty award to 5 metres from the Dundee line, they were penalised going for the score and Dundee took a quick penalty and ran the ball well out of defence, until the ball was lost and Cartha pounced to score a try which was converted. 72 minutes gone and Cartha ahead for the first time, 24-21.

Dundee hit back from the kick-off with strong mid-field drives, but knocked-on some 10 metres from the Cartha line. Although possession was won back, and Cartha were again penalised, Dundee ran the ball but lost it, and Cartha cleared to the Dundee half. Another penalty against Dundee and Cartha took the kick quickly to run in an unconverted try.

77 minutes gone and Cartha’s lead was extended: 29-21.
Several lengthy injury stoppages extended playing time, giving Dundee the opportunity for another score. A strong run by Scot Doig after a Cartha penalty led to a ruck from which Clinton Davey was able to burst over for an unconverted score which preceded the final whistle.

Full-time: Cartha QP 29 Dundee Titans 26

In spite of Dundee’s early burst, handling errors and penalty awards prevented any continuity and consistency developing. Although the pitch slopes to both ends from the middle, and the wind was more or less across the pitch, it seemed that the side playing towards the clubhouse was the more dominant, leading to something of a game of two halves. Two bonus points, however, and a sterling effort by coach Dougie Gray, who manfully played the whole game as hooker, stealing a couple of strikes against the head on the way.

Scorers:

Tries: Stuart Barlow, Callum Bowie, Fergus Wallace, Clinton Davey
Conversions: Finn Murphy (3)

Watsonians 15-27 Dundee High

Post match reaction from Head Coach, Colin Robertson

“Tonight was a strong performance all round and a very satisfying win. We did our homework from the first game and our game plan approach worked very well both in attack and defence. We scored three cracking tries from invention and pressure and led comfortably throughout the game. Duncan Leese played his best game for Dundee closely followed by the outstanding Blair Cochrane and our storming No8 Gavin Hughan.”

Dundee High 36-14 Jedforest

Post match reaction from Head Coach, Colin Robertson

“To score 5 tries to nil in the second half shows the quality of our play as we were in total control. Our defence was outstanding. We stuck to the game plan perfectly in second half and played with speed and variety to outsmart them. In particular, we saw big performances from Blair Cochrane, Gavin Hughan, Darrell Russell and Donald Sangster.”

Dundee High 17-14 Hillhead Jordanhill

The lure of the televised Internationals no doubt gave rise to the meagre attendance at Mayfield, but it was the stay-aways who benefited, by missing a below-par performance from the home side against a beleaguered Hills side which almost recorded its first win of the season.

The first half produced little of significance, with a stuttering performance from Dundee, littered with handling errors and penalty offences which prevented any sustained momentum, although there were early signs of a Dundee scrummage dominance which was to prove the difference between the sides.

The meagre home support was energised by a fine break out of defence by Hamish Livingston which ended on the Dundee 10 metre line with a forward pass and a hamstring injury which led to Hamish’s withdrawal.

With half-time approaching, a great break by Harry Millar, Tim McKavanagh and Matt O’Sullivan almost gained the Hills’ line at the right-hand corner, but another penalty saved Hills. Dundee pressure was maintained, however, and when the visitors were penalised, Dundee kicked to touch 5 metres out and drove the resultant line-out until Hills were again penalised. Dundee chose the scrum and drove it over the Hills’ line for Ryan Milne to claim the touch-down. Harry Millar converted and Dundee were 7-0 ahead with 38 minutes played.

Hills responded with pressure in the Dundee 22, leading to three penalty offences by the home side and a first-ever yellow card for veteran Euan Grewar. Dundee’s scrum dominance protected their line, however and a penalty against Hills brought the half to a close.

Half-time: Dundee HSFP 7 Hillhead Jordanhill 0

A “nothing” half, with either try line threatened only once, at Dundee’s push-over try. Greater care and accuracy, particularly at the break-down and with off-loads, was the half-time message.

A superb, long touch kick by Blair Cochrane shortly after the re-start brought a line-out on the Hills 5 -metre line. Dundee won that line-out and moved the ball left twice, before coming back to the right for a try near the corner by Stuart Barlow. Harry Millar was unsuccessful with the difficult conversion and Dundee were 12-0 ahead after 2 minutes of the second half.

Hills were far from beaten, however, and hit back from the kick-off, aided by some indifferent Dundee tackling. Pressure eventually told, and stand-off Jurisic ended a good handling movement with a try which to which he added a fine conversion and the lead was reduced: 12-7 after 48 minutes.

Another quarter of an hour passed with little of note, Dundee’s attempts to exert pressure being thwarted by penalties and, in the event, it was Hills who were next to score. A period of sustained pressure led to a try by Ryan, converted by Jurisic and Hills were ahead, not undeservedly, after 65 minutes.

Dundee retaliated and after Hills were penalised, Dundee found touch in the Hills 22. The ball was moved right, left, and right again until, with the line at their mercy, Dundee knocked on. Hills’ relief was but temporary, however, thanks to Dundee’s scrum dominance. Hills were forced to touch down over their own line and Dundee drove the resultant scrum. Hills were penalised, Dundee took another scrum and this time they drove it over for another try by Ryan Milne. The conversion attempt was unsuccessful and Dundee were ahead 17-14 with 6 minutes remaining; 6 minutes which produced no more excitement, thanks to further mishandling of the ball and penalty offences.

Full-time: Dundee HSFP 17 Hillhead Jordanhill 14

A poor, penalty-strewn game and a result which brought little satisfaction to the Dundee camp. Dundee’s motivation had to be questioned and the lesson learned that a different attitude will be necessary in the remaining games, if a respectable final league position is to be achieved.

Aberdeen Grammar 14-23 Dundee High

Aberdeen Grammar v Dundee HSFP
7 March 2015

With the advantage of a strong, diagonal wind, Grammar kicked off on a very firm, dry Rubislaw pitch and were first on the attack. The offensive was repelled and Dundee began to exert some pressure, until an interception was made by Grammar No 6 Ali Mackie, who ran some 50 metres unopposed, to score under the posts. Stand-off Knudson slotted the simple conversion and the hosts were 7-0 ahead after10 minutes.

Dundee struck back from the re-start and good handling play got them to the Grammar line. When Grammar were penalised, Harry Millar’s penalty goal reduced the deficit: 7-3 after 13 minutes.

The match continued in even vein until a fine break by Tim McKavanagh took play to the Grammar 5-metre line. When Grammar were penalised, Dundee found touch and drove the resultant line-out possession over the try line for a score credited to Darrell Russell. Harry Millar was successful with the difficult conversion attempt and Dundee edged ahead, 7-10, after 25 minutes.

Dundee were on the attack again and a good break by James Mulligan saw then reach the Grammar 22, but a knock-on stopped the momentum. Dundee were exerting pressure but handling errors were denying them the opportunity of extending their lead. A telling break from defence by Matt O’Sullivan took play to the half-way line, but again the ball was lost. Then it was Grammar’s turn, when a telling break by Ali Mackie had the home supporters roaring as play reached 10m metres from the Dundee line, only for Grammar to knock on, allowing Dundee to clear the danger.

Dundee continued on attack, aided by another fine break by Matt O’Sullivan, but a 30-metre penalty goal by Harry Millar as half-time beckoned was all their reward.

Half-time: Aberdeen Grammar 7 Dundee HSFP 13

On balance, a good first half by Dundee, who were asking questions with ball in hand. Minimising errors and greater continuity of play, coupled with wind advantage, should secure a positive outcome.

In the event, it was Grammar who showed first after the resumption, with the greater share of possession, but handling errors were proving costly and opportunities were lost. Grammar continued to press, however, and after 10 minutes of the half, their efforts were eventually rewarded as the ball was moved from a ruck near the Dundee posts and winger Grant Walker crashed over for a try, converted by Knudson, putting Grammar back in the lead, 14-13.

Dundee exerted their first attack after the re-start and, after a line-out drive, play was taken to the Grammar 5-metre line, where a bizarre series of scrums took place. At each one, Grammar were penalised and Dundee opted for a re-scrum. With visiting supporters wondering if a penalty try was in prospect, the issue was resolved at the fourth attempt when the scrum broke and a Dundee drive saw Stevie Longwell gaining the try. The conversion attempt was unsuccessful, but Dundee were ahead again, 14-18, after 61 minutes.

Four minutes later, the lead was extended, when Josh Rutnagur pounced on a loose ball after a line-out near the Grammar line. The conversion was missed, but there was now some daylight between the sides at 14-23.

Grammar hit back after another good spell by Dundee floundered on lost possession, and the home side almost scored when they were nudged into touch in the act of touching down in the corner. Grammar were not giving up without a fight, and continued to test the Dundee defence. A series of penalty offences by Dundee in quick succession enabled Grammar to mount an assault in the Dundee red zone, and eventually over the line, only for the ball to be held up. This was as close as Grammar reached, however, and the match finished without further scoring, meaning that a delighted Dundee team was able to secure the Dallas Allardice trophy for the first time.

Full-time: Aberdeen Grammar 14 Dundee HSFP 23

With visiting supporters anticipating that wind advantage after the resumption would enable Dundee comfortably to extend their first-half lead, credit is given to Grammar for their refusal to give in, and for a second half performance which lead to a closer game than some had anticipated.

Dundee High 13-29 Stewarts Melville

Match Report
21 February 2015

The overnight frost had soon disappeared, making the 11 o’clock pitch inspection a mere precaution and, with Mayfield in good condition, Dundee kicked off on a bright, sunny afternoon, with a moderate breeze at their backs and were soon in top gear, pressing strongly in the Stew Mel 22. After Dundee won a line-out 10 metres out, Stew Mel were penalised and Dundee kicked to touch to set up another line-out drive which this time took them over the try line for a score by Stevie Longwell, which Harry Millar converted. 5 minutes gone and Dundee were ahead 7-0.

Another line-out win and a strong forwards drive took the home side back into the Stew Mel 22 and when Stew Mel were penalised again, Harry Millar took the chance to extend the lead with a penalty goal. 10 – 0 after 9 minutes.

Dundee were playing at great tempo at this stage and continuing to press in the visitors’ half, but penalty offences were preventing the score being increased. It was a penalty against Stew Mel, however, which gave Harry Millar another goal chance after 16 minutes and he duly obliged from just inside the Stew Mel 10 metre line to make the score 13 – 0.

Stew Mel mounted their first attack of the match after the restart and a spell of pressure in the Dundee red zone resulted, before Dundee were able to clear, thanks to some Stew Mel handling errors and a dominant scrum performance. A fine break by Nick Alston took play into the Stew Mel 22 again, but the ball was lost in a tackle.

There was little threat to either line until, with half-time in sight, Stew Mel play-maker Nick McCashin made a telling break, before passing to full-back Mike Hanning, who scored a try converted by McCashin.

Half-time: Dundee 13 Stewarts Melville 7

There was disappointment in the Dundee camp at letting Stew Mel in for that late score and the exhortation was not to allow Stew Mel back into the game but to return to the dominating power play of the first 20 minutes.

In the event, it was the visitors who started stronger in the second half. They were soon pressing in the Dundee 22 and remained dominant until, after 10 minutes of the half, a strong drive led to a score by tight-head prop Rhys Morgan, who repeated his feat of the November match at Inverleith. McCashin converted and Stew Mel were ahead for the first time, 13-14.

The lead was stretched 7 minutes later by a McCashin penalty from just inside the Dundee half, making it 13-17.

Stew Mel were soon back in the Dundee red zone and when the home side were penalised on their 5 metre line, Stew Mel ran the ball, passing it across the pitch, leading to another try by Hanning. The conversion attempt was unsuccessful and the score moved to 13-22.

Rare Dundee attacks were posing little threat to the Stew Mel line, with most of the play taking place in the home half. When Dundee were awarded their only penalty of the half, the clearance kick failed to find touch and Stew Mel were back on the offensive. An eventual break-out by Dundee took play to half-way but, when the ball was lost in a tackle, it was picked up by winger Matt Morrell, who dashed some 50 metres to touch down for a try converted by McCashin: 13-29 with 2 added minutes played.
A final Dundee offensive from the kick-off led to pressure on the Stew Mel line but a series of drives was without result and a messy scrum brought proceedings to a close.

Full-time: Dundee 3 Stewarts Melville 29

A disappointing, flat second half performance from Dundee, lacking the energy of the first 20 minutes.

Dundee High 24-10 Peebles

31 January 2014
2pm – Mayfield
Match Report

For the Dundee club, on meagre rugby rations over the last few weeks, it was with some relief that Mayfield was declared playable in the morning and, in the event, the pitch was in good condition as the visitors kicked off. Dundee were first on the attack, but lost possession, giving Peebles the advantage, leading to a second penalty offence by Dundee. Full-back Raeburn did the business and Peebles were ahead, 0-3 after 4 minutes.

With neither side taking control, play continued without notable incident until Harry Millar was able to equalise with a penalty goal some ten minutes later.

The half continued with neither side proving dominant, although there were early signs of Dundee superiority in the set scrum. This proved of benefit when a Peebles probe led to a Dundee knock-on in their goal area and Peebles were pushed of the ball at the resultant 5-metre scrum. Dundee ran the ball well out of defence and began to exert some control, aided by the 10-minute removal of the Peebles hooker for a yellow card tackle on a player without the ball.

Dundee were beginning to look a better side and pressure led to a penalty against Peebles in front of the posts on their 22. The goal attempt was unsuccessful, however, but Dundee remained in temporary control until a penalty to Peebles allowed them to gain touch in the Dundee half. Dundee won the line-out, but lost the initiative, allowing Peebles a rare attacking opportunity. To their credit they made the most of the chance and ran the ball strongly through a number of tackles, for winger Blyth to score in the right-hand corner. Raeburn slotted a fine conversion and as the half-time whistle went, Peebles were ahead.

Half-time: Dundee 3 Peebles 10

An uneventful half with Dundee eventually giving the home support some grounds for optimism in the last 15 minutes, only for Peebles to ease into a late lead. The half-time message was that a winning performance was not far away and would result from keeping things simple in the second half.

Dundee began the second half in the ascendancy, and their set-scrum dominance was to prove influential, firstly by driving Peebles some 10 metres from the half-way line. When Peebles were penalised, Dundee had another goal attempt, but again there was no joy. Dundee were well on the attack, however, and when the visitors were penalised 5 metres out in front of the posts, Dundee opted for the scrum. Peebles were penalised, and Dundee chose another scrum, this time pushing Peebles over their line, for Donald Sangster to touch down, giving Harry Millar a simple conversion opportunity, with which he duly obliged. Level terms with 12 minutes of the half gone.

Dundee were back on the attack from the kick-off, and were held up over the Peebles line. This time the Peebles scrum held firm, so Dundee were obliged to move the ball, leading to another penalty against Peebles out wide. This time, Dundee kicked for touch and drove the line-out over for a try by George Arnott. Harry Millar again converted and Dundee were ahead for the first time, 17-10 after 62 minutes.

Aided by the wind, Dundee remained in the ascendancy and, but for handling errors, and some determined Peebles defence, may have extended their lead before they did. In the event, it took another ten minutes or so before some concerted effort led to skipper Alan Brown barrelling over for a try which Harry Millar converted. 24-10 after 73 minutes.

The kick-off allowed Peebles a rare incursion into the Dundee half but no significant gain resulted and the game petered out with no further score-board action.

Full-time: Dundee 24 Peebles 10

Satisfaction at having a game during a difficult weather period, and in gaining a win, was tempered by a slight frustration that the bonus point fourth try was not secured in spite of most of the second period being played in the Peebles half. It was good for Dundee, however, to have had the chance of shaking off the rustiness of inactivity.

Dundee 19-6 Kelso – Match Report

It was a day of firsts at chilly, windswept Mayfield: Kelso provided the opposition for the first home match of 2015: for the first time, there was an exchange referee from Japan and for the first time, he encountered a snow storm while refereeing.

Unfortunately, there was little else of note in a mediocre game which had all the hallmarks of rustiness, at least as far as the home side was concerned. Indeed, it took a good 30 minutes for Dundee to reach the Kelso 22 and the opening half-hour had been punctuated by stoppages for penalties, injuries and handling errors, meaning neither side was able to offer any meaningful continuity.

Andrew Skeen slotted a fine penalty for Kelso after only 2 minutes and repeated the feat on the quarter game mark to give the visitors a 6-0 lead. With half an hour gone, a good break by Andy Dymock took play into the Kelso 22 for the first time and after Kelso were penalised, Harry Millar opened Dundee’s account with a 20-metre penalty.

Dundee weathered the Kelso storm from the re-start, then stole possession and mounted another attack and, when Kelso were penalised, Dundee kicked for touch in the Kelso 22, then moved the ball well from the left, for Matt O’Sullivan to dive over near the right corner. The conversion attempt was unsuccessful, and Dundee turned 8-6 ahead.

Half-time: Dundee 8 Kelso 6

After an opening half hour to forget, Dundee’s performance in the last ten minutes gave the coaching team some grounds for optimism and the message was to build on that, keeping play in the Kelso third of the pitch, using the wind to advantage.

Dundee were first on the attack after the re-start and, after a Kelso knock-on near their line, the visitors were penalised for collapsing the resultant scrum and Harry Millar had a simple task to land the penalty from in front of the posts after 5 minutes of the half. 11-6.

Another penalty attempt by Harry after the re-start was unsuccessful but a brief snowstorm in their faces helped prevent Kelso from regaining any momentum. Defences were able to cope with any attacking initiatives for another 20 minutes, until a Dundee drive led to the ball being held up over the Kelso line. The resulting scrum was driven over by Dundee, for Donald Sangster to touch down for an unconverted try. 16-6, with 13 minutes remaining.

Kelso were penalised after the kick-off and Dundee found touch in the visitors’ 22. Dundee were moving the ball well now, and a good break by Andy Dymock saw him stopped in front of the posts, just short of the Kelso line. Kelso were penalised, however, and another simple goal opportunity was accepted by Harry Millar to put Dundee 19-6 ahead after 70 minutes.

Kelso tried gamely for the remaining 10 minutes, but Dundee’s defence was sufficient to prevent any danger arising.

Full time: Dundee 19 Kelso 6

In the Dundee camp, there was satisfaction with the win and with the defensive performance, with the feeling that the lacklustre performance, particularly in the opening 30 minutes, was due to lack of matches over the festive period.

Tries: O’Sullivan, Sangster
