Tell me why……

We don’t like Mondays, because it’s a whole week till we see the Crown in action again. Mixed results at the weekend with the 1st XV grabbing a good result on the road to Kelso (Sounds like a terrible Country & Western Song) and the Titans losing out to Muir at Meggatland. Have a look […]

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.

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.

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 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, […]

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 […]
