Lanark’s epic triumph against Cowal
Cowal 14 - Lanark 48

Lanark Rugby Club have fought back and regained glory this week winning an impressive 48-14 against Cowal.
Grey skies in Dunoon were no reflection of the team’s energy as Lanark held possession despite Cowal’s efforts, especially and impressively, after a penalty to Cowal just fifteen minutes in.
The match kicked off strong but a mere seven minutes into the game Ross Nelson’s knee took a turn for the worst – quite literally. Regardless of the loss of a great player, this was no hindrance to the team as he boosted moral even higher at the side lines.
An impressive eight tries alongside consistent conversions ensured Lanark saw themselves come out on top in comparison to Cowal with two.
As Lanark’s third winning game thus far, it presented intense determination from all players to push themselves up the league table, but as Graeme McNicol said: “Let’s just play a good game of rugby.”, and that they did.
No matter how hard Cowal fought, Lanark retaliated harder. Continuous steals from Cowal kept the boys in control of the game, and in deterrence of the ball spending a lot of time nearing the goal line, Lanark’s defence was too strong to see it through.
Scoring his first ever try and pushing his own limits to secure the team a victory is Jordan Muncie, Lanark’s man of the match.
The next game of the season is Birkmyre away on Saturday 16th of November at 2pm. As a team with only two losses so far it will prove difficult, but if the boys perform to the same immense standard as today there is no doubt that they can smash it.
