IN a game which could have gone either way, Allan Glen’s managed to bag the points.

Allan Glen’s RFC.............. 9

Garnock....................... 3

Although Glens had by far the majority of territory, they failed to capitalise.

The game was spoiled by an over-enthusiastic whistler, leaving the players from both side confused on the interpretation of certain rules, in particular those at the ruck.

Glens opened the scoring after only three minutes when Thomson kicked a penalty, but despite having a big territorial advantage the home side could not add to their tally, making a half-time score of 3-0.

After the break Garnock did come more into the game, but it was Thomson again, who added to his penalty count for the Bishopbriggs team.

Garnock replied with a penalty by McCulloch, but it was Glens who finalised the score with another penalty by Thomson.

The Glens forwards again dominated the scrum, but struggled in the line-out.

Murrell gave the visitors some problems with charging runs through the centre and McKeoewn and McKay came close to scoring on several occasions.

This Saturday Allan Glen’s are away to Glasgow Accies in the league – 3pm kick-off.
