South of Scotland secure 5-try victory over Caledonia

The South of Scotland returned after a five year break to beat Caledonia 33-7 with five tries to one at Riverside Park last night. Gregor and Lewis Young, Ross Nixon, Bruce McNeil and Lee Armstrong all scored. It was the first time in five years that the South team had played and only the third time in 21 years that a match involving the South of Scotland side had taken place. There was a sense that players and spectators alike all wanted something to happen in the future for the South team and district rugby to return would be an ultimate goal. To have another Scottish district come on board was a major step forward with regards this, and though Glasgow will prove a tough nut to crack, there is hope that Edinburgh and other regions, including south of the border, may want to come on board to make things happen in the future. A lot of hard work needs to be done but there is a real willingness to have something for club players to aspire to without having to leave their own clubs to achieve it.
