to get a big score against, but there were a number of positives that we need to focus on and highlight, especially the seven lads who came into the team.
“It was a big day for them and one they won’t forget against a very good Currie team, but when it comes to the reverse fixture later in the season they’ll see something different.”
Currie dominated from the off, scoring a converted try within a minute of the game start when winger Archie MacLean darted over.
In their first foray into the home 22, Grammar were awarded a penalty which was slotted by Sam Knudson, the visiting captain and stand-off.
Thereafter it was all Currie who ran the show with the confidence of a team who believe they can overhaul leaders Marr by the end of the season, expertly led by their own number 10 George Hunter.
Three more tries came in the first half, attributed to Fergus Scott (2) and Charlie Brett, all of which were converted by the excellent Hunter.
Grammar’s cause was not helped by losing the services of their highly combative No. 8 Robin Cessford, who took a knock, forcing him to leave the field of play.
At 28-3 down and minus Cessford, the Aberdeen side had much to contemplate at half-time.
Heavy rain announced the start of the second half, leading to a deluge of home tries, five in total, two of which came in the first two minutes of the half, falling to Graeme Carson and Steve Hamilton who went on to grab a double. Cammy Meager got in on the act as the home side eased past their half-century of points.
Matt Poole also found his way over the Grammar. Hunter added the conversions.
To their credit, Grammar kept putting in the big hits but were relieved to hear the final whistle of George Ormiston.
The result leaves Grammar sitting third in the Premiership but seven points adrift of second-placed Currie and eight behind leaders Marr.
