The final score of 11–5 came after a keenly contested match.

Watson's scored a penalty through Adam Hastings (S4) after 30 minutes,  then Ben Robbins (S4) scored a try on the stroke of half time after a sweeping move.

Shortly after half time Hastings added another penalty to make it 11–0. Stewart's Melville came back strongly and scored a try with just five minutes remaining setting up a tense finale in which Watson's held on to progress through to the semi finals.

Details of the semi final tie will be posted here when it becomes known.
