Every point’s a bonus for Cambuslang
Cambuslang ........... 22 Glasgow Accies ...... 31
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
