Cambuslang show mettle
Cambuslang Rugby Club showed a little patience on Saturday – and took home all five points after overcoming Dalziel.
Any thoughts the Cambus lads had of an easy win against the division’s basement side were quickly forgotten, as they trailed 13-7 at half-time.
However, an improved second-half display saw the Coats Park side pick up the victory, with tries coming from Grant Adie, Chad McGlame, Euan Jones and Gregor Jones, all converted by Greg Morrison.
Cambuslang coach Jamie Seery said:“I told the guys at half time that they just needed to be a bit more patient. We were already creating a decent number of opportunities and as long as we kept making those chances then we would be fine.”
Jamie believed that Cambus’s efforts in rallying from a losing position was the most heartening part of the victory.
He added:“I’m really pleased that we were able to come from behind and win.
“We were physical in defence throughout the game, which we needed and Dalziel played well .
“We came out after half time and got a couple of tries quickly, and after that we were able to control things better.
“I felt they would tire in the second half and the players felt the same, that it was all about doing what we had been doing.“
The result keeps Cambuslang in sixth place in the league ahead of a tough trip away to Gartnock this weekend.
But Jamie feels the club are moving in the right direction.
He added:“I’m pleased with our play recently.
“We are creating a lot and looking dangerous attacking, and we are improving with our defending.
“We just need to keep carrying that into each game.”
