Euan can’t wait for derby show­down

Paisley Daily Express - - A Newlandscape -

Pais­ley Rugby Club’s Euan Stu­art in­sists the Bud­dies’fo­cus is al­ready on the lo­cal derby with Birk­myre hav­ing re­turned to win­ning ways.

The An­chor side re­turned to league ac­tion for the first time in three weeks when they saw off the threat of Cum­ber­nauld on home soil.

Stu­art played a key part in the win with a num­ber of con­ver­sa­tions and penal­ties which helped Pais­ley get another win on the board as they tar­get pro­mo­tion.

But with Pais­ley set to play Kil­ma­colm side Birkyre in their next clash, Stu­art ad­mits eyes are al­ready on the clash.

Stu­art said in the wake of the game:“It was tough. Cum­ber­nauld came out hard in the first half and caught us nap­ping a bit.

“We showed real heart to come back and we ac­tu­ally looked stronger with 14 men on the park.

“It shows how hard this group works for each other that we ral­lied and put some real pres­sure on Cum­ber­nauld when the chips were down.

“It’s great to get away with the win and it was bet­ter to play at home for the first time in nearly two months.

“We’ve been work­ing hard dur­ing the week and look for­ward to tak­ing on lo­cal ri­vals Birk­myre af­ter our huge win against them ear­lier in the sea­son.”
