Cam­bus­lang show met­tle

Rutherglen Reformer - - Rugby -

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.”
