Dalriada travelled up to BRA on Saturday morning in conditions that wouldn’t favour running rugby. The visitors ended up with a fine 21-15 win. With the pitch covered white instead of green after an early morning snow shower, Dalriada were first to make a breakthrough after a penalty following a Jack Dowey break. The penalty was kicked to the corner and after a couple of phases Angus Johnston slipped through a gap for the opening try. This was converted by centre Stewart Moore. From the kick off young winger Ross Fallows made some great ground and obtained a penalty. Dalriada again opted to kick to the Corner and Aaron Christie was bundled over from close range from the line-out. The Conversion was again converted by Moore.
