It was a windy bright day at New Anniesland, the home of Glasgow Accies. The two sides, second and third in the league served up a ten try thriller with each half being the mirror image of the other.
On the last occasion these two sided met Carrick was still in the game at half time but on Saturday last, in front of a big home support, by half time any chance of a Carrick upset had been blown away.
A slightly under strength Carrick team travelled to Annan last Saturday to take on a young, in the main, Annan side. It was a dreich miserable day with the strong wind blowing down the Annan ski slope.
Was it a hangover from last week's defeat from GHK or was it the cold miserably day with wet underfoot conditions that produced a sub-standard performance from the men from Maybole. Within two minutes Carrick were seven points down.
Last Saturday second placed Carrick hosted unbeaten league leaders GHK. Conditions were almost perfect for an enthralling contest which Carrick had to win to keep their slim promotion hopes alive.
On Saturday the 14th February Carrick Rugby host GHK in what could be a winner takes all promotion decider. This is a huge match for all at Carrick Rugby and we would like to have the biggest support we can muster.
Saturday’s match sponsor, Lang and O’Rourke, and ball sponsor, Under Armour, were certainly appreciated last Saturday at Maybole. The former for providing dug outs that kept both coaching teams dry in atrocious conditions.
