In the most important match of the season so far, the team played arguably their best game ever. Any match against school of rugby Grange is a big one, and to also be in the knockout stages of the Scottish Cup, the pressure was on.
Both Carrick teams were on the road last weekend and both gained impressive victories. The firsts beat a struggling Strathaven side 136 to 5 scoring twenty one tries.
On Saturday Carrick 1st XV hosted Clydebank on a sunny, warm day at Academy Fields. The side were keen to make up for last week’s poor performance and with the return of John Dewar and Gary Thomson Carrick were looking more like the side that defeated Stewartry in their first home game.
The S2 side hosted a stuffy Hamilton College side on Saturday. In the true spirit of the game we gave Hamilton 2 players as they didn’t have a full side.

It was Blair Waugh who opened the scoring after a long spell of possession, the opportunity fell to Blair out wide and after diving over the line the Try was given.
