West League Update - 11th December 2018

WeegieRugby Header Image

First up, congratulations to Greenock Wanderers and Glasgow Uni Medics who won their respective finals in the West Regional Cup competitions.  Both the Shield and Bowl finals were played on the main pitch at Scotstoun with Uni Medics winning their contest against Birkmyre 31 -10 to lift the Bowl trophy, and Greenock Wanderers overcoming Dalziel 23 – 12 to lift the Shield trophy.

In the league, we had changes at the top of both West 1 and West 3, whilst in West 2 there was a “shock” result for one of the title challengers.

West League Update (West 3) - 11th December 2018

With Glasgow Uni Medics playing in the West Bowl final on Saturday, WD had the chance to retake the lead in the Championship battle.  Fort William was the venue for 3rd v 2nd place contest, with Lochaber as the hosts.  We watched their game earlier in the season, which WD won 41-10, but Lochaber were in the game until they ran out of subs, so this looked like being a decent contest.

West League Update (West 2) - 11th December 2018

Some interesting developments in West 2 at the weekend.  The gap to leader Lenzie closed (though that was weather related as their game at Paisley was off due to a waterlogged pitch), Oban probably saw their title aspirations disappear with a home defeat, and we had another non-fulfilment from Millbrae.

West League Update (West 1) - 11th December 2018

We’ve lost count of the number of times the Club leading the West 1 title battle has changed, but this week, due to the Shield final, East Kilbride were the only one of the four contenders on league duty.  They had the tricky game against fifth-placed Annan, but they didn’t slip up with a 25-3 bonus point victory.  This puts them four points ahead of Garnock(but they have now played a game more), and nine points ahead of Glens and Greenock, who each have two games in hand on EK.
