Cam­bus­lang Rugby Club coach Rob­bie Ste­wart was con­tent with a bonus point af­ter his team fought bravely against league lead­ers Glas­gow Aca­dem­i­cals.

The Coats Park side may have been de­feated but they claimed what might turn out to be an im­por­tant point in their bid to avoid rel­e­ga­tion.

Tries from Gre­gor Jones, Grant Eadie, James McLaren and Kriss Hughes meant that Cam­bus earned some re­ward for their dogged ef­forts.

Ste­wart said: “The game went bet­ter than ex­pected but not as well as it could have been.

“We were up against it play­ing Ac­cies, who are fly­ing high at the top of the ta­ble.

“We had a game plan and our play­ers ex­e­cuted it very well.

“We started well and Ac­cies didn’t touch the ball for the first three min­utes but we had to fight back from 12-0 to make it 12-12 just af­ter the break.

“But a stupid bit of in­dis­ci­pline cost us in front of our own posts. The ref­eree had awarded a scrum but one of our play­ers told him it should have been a penalty. He cor­rectly re­versed the de­ci­sion and Ac­cies took a quick touch penalty and made it 19-12.

“Credit to the boys be­cause they scored an­other two tries which gave us a bonus point.

“I wouldn’t say we were happy but we are con­tent with a point.”

Cam­bus­lang are third bot­tom in the BT West Divi­sion 1 ta­ble but sit on 17 points — a point above He­lens­burgh— with three games to go.

Bat­tle Cam­bus have three games left
