Bannockburn chalked up their third win in four league games away to Waid Academy FP this past weekend.

Waid – so often a thorn in Bannockburn’s side in years gone by – struggled to contain the well-oiled Bannockburn machine.

The Burn came out of the blocks at great speed and intensity, with flanker Mark Hunter scoring within minutes of kick-off.

Bannockburn were going through the phases well, asserting control and maintaining consistency against a disciplined Waid side.

Centre Joe Wright and winger Ryan Jones added tries before halftime, helping the Burn to 17-7 lead at the break.

It was Waid Academy who capitalised after the restart, taking advantage from a series of penalties which saw the Burn side marched back over sixty metres for being offside and handling in the ruck.

However, Bannockburn controlled the game from start to finish – a 90% tackle success rate the marker of their defensive qualities – with a solid display across the pitch.

Hooker Russell Brown crossed the line for a try before captain Calum Bruce added his own to top off a mature performance for Bannockburn.

Man of the Match: Russell Brown

Waid Academy 14 : 29 Bannockburn RFC
