boy carrying rugby ballWatson's U18 team progressed to the semi finals of the Bell Lawrie Scottish Schools' Cup after a close match against the defending champions, Merchiston Castle School, this afternoon.

The game was closely fought and could have gone either way. Both teams scored a try and a penalty in blustery conditions that made kicking hard. The final score, 8-8.

However, the rules meant that as the game had been played at Merchiston, Watson's, as the away team, were declared the winners.

Details of the semi final matches for both the U18 and U15 teams will be posted on the website as soon as we have the information.
