Enjoying much of the possession throughout the match, the team provided the large crowd of Watson's supporters with some excellent rugby and a night to remember. Tries from Jack Ferguson and the captain, Malcolm Peacock, and a conversion by Alexander Harris was enough to win what proved to be an exciting match.

Edinburgh Academy put up a fight later in the second half, with a try scored by Tom Whittle at 50 minutes, but it was too late.

The Bell Lawrie Man of the Match was judged by Scotland internationalists, Andy Henderson, Marcus Di Rollo and Mike Blair, and was awarded to the GWC outside centre, Jack Ferguson.
