Lenzie travelled to Strathaven looking to maintain their unbeaten record in 2012 and, in the end, they achieved this with some style.

Lenzie attacked from the start, but it was 25 minutes before they got on the scoreboard when Cameron went over after five-metre scrum.

Defences were on top for the rest of the half and it was 5-0 at the interval.

Lenzie maintained their stout defence in the second half and their attacking threat grew stronger, especially after Strathaven lost a man – red-carded for foul play.

Soon after this, in the 65th minute, winger McDonnell showed the opposition a clean pair of heels to score a try and take the score to 10-0.

Lenzie were now in the ascendancy and man-of-the-match Williams unloaded a neat inside pass for flying winger Nisbet, who ran in under the posts.

Wilson celebrated his birthday by slotting the extra points – taking the final score to 17-0. The match was a triumph for Lenzie’s teamwork, but was marred by an unfortunate shoulder injury to Andy McAuley.

Everyone at the club wishes him a speedy recovery.

Meanwhile Lenzie’s second XV had an excellent 40-14 win at Cumbernauld in their last league game.

Lenzie’s tries came from six different players with the pick being the score from captain Cammy Moir, who has led the team well this season.
