London Scottish Kilts secured an impressive 51-10 victory over Ealing Trailfinders in a MMT2 clash on Saturday.
Ealing had a very powerful pack and an experienced back line but this didnt put off what was a young Scottish side.
The game began with London Scottish camped in Ealing's half, executing a very dynamic game during the first half which allowed Scottish to score four tries.
In the last 10 minutes of the first half the young Scots relaxed the tempo of the game and Ealing scored their first try after several tight phases by their forwards. The score was 22-5 at the break for Scottish.
During the break, The Kilts team identified the areas of the game that they could improve and from the kick off, they were at all times seeking the try that could kill the game.
In the first 10 minutes of the second half The Kilts scored twice and those tries gave the team a good advantage on the scoreboard with a 32-5 lead and 30 mins to play.
But the team feeling a win was almost certain, slowed down and on 64 minutes paid the price that resulted in a turnover on the halfway line where their winger ran 40 meters with the forwards providing the needed support to round off an Ealing score after some continuity through phases.
This made the score 32-10 with 15 minutes to play.
But the afternoon belonged to Scottish and with an outstanding attack from a lineout inside the 22, the back line moved the ball wide and with plenty of support they ran in the try of the afternoon.
Three more tries followed before the end putting the final score 51-10 in favour of London Scottish’s new team.
With this result, The Kilts stay in contention for the MMT2 play-offs after an indifferent start to the season.
The challenge remains within the senior rugby set-up to build more depth, culture and consistency as a group.
