Open­ing win for Cam­bus

Rutherglen Reformer - - The Back Page - Dou­glas Dickie

Cam­bus­lang Rugby Club got their sea­son of to a per­fect start with a vic­tory over Pais­ley.

Cam­bus were rarely trou­bled af­ter over­turn­ing an early deficit to run out 38-20 winners away from home.

They also had to con­tend with the loss of Alex Dean early on, who picked up an in­jury.

As well as pick­ing up four points for a win, the Coats Park side also scored a bonus point for notch­ing up five tries.

Coach Jamie Seery was de­lighted with how the match panned out.

He said:“It was the start we were look­ing for.

“It was im­por­tant, af­ter all the hard work we put in dur­ing the sum­mer, to get that win un­der our belts.

“We’ll keep tak­ing it one game at time but hope­fully we can take that form into the next game.

“It was a scrappy start and we lost our scrum half, Alex Dean, to an in­jury within the first 10 min­utes.

“We had to bring Chad McGlame on, who is one of our new sign­ings, and play him at scrum half which is not his nor­mal po­si­tion.

“It took another 15 min­utes to find our feet but once we did we played well.

“The boys en­joyed

them­selves on Sat­ur­day night and will be back im train­ing to­mor­row.”

Next up for Cam­bus is a first home tie of the sea­son when Cly­de­bank make the trip across Glas­gow.

Jamie is ex­pect­ing another tough game:“I think they fin­ished third last sea­son so they will be slightly bet­ter than Pais­ley.

“They won by a sim­i­lar score­line in their first game so it should be an in­ter­est­ing game.

“We’ll have a few more play­ers avail­able and that will give us some bet­ter op­tions.”
