Jed started the game with a team which had 4 changes from Thursday nights selected side due to the flu bug hitting the club. the visitors started the game in a positive manner and denied the home side possession for much of the first half. A converted penalty by Ewan Scott after 5 minutes and a converted try by David Grieve had Jed in the driving seat for much of the first half, worrying for Jed was the way the YM gained possession towards the end of the half and scored a try on the 38th minute. half time score YM 5 – Jed 10.

The home side started the second half with the same attitude as the visitors in the first half taking the lead with a converted try after just 5 minutes, Jed then regained some composure when Ewan Scott converted another penalty 10 minutes into 2nd half. Both sides endeavoured to play rugby but the game was spoiled by penalties when both teams began to tire. The home team were next on the score sheet when they converted a penalty to take the lead once more on the 20th minute of the second half, again the game moved from one end of the park to the other, Jed's younger pack taking the ball to the opposition at every opportunity. It was not until the final minute of the second half that Scott managed to convert a penalty to seal the game for Jed. Final score hawk YM 15 Jed-Forest 16.

This was a difficult game for Jed with as many call offs but all credit to the players that came into the side, James Rowley returned to the team after a length absence and played a good game as did Nicky Bates when he came on to help put the brakes on the Jed scrum. Thanks to David Grieveand Neil Cook who came out their sick beds to help the team. We have another week off next Saturday so hopefully our players should recover from the flu bug going around and should be up for the Hawks game a week later, our ladies day lunch is before the game so hopefully our boys can turn it on for the ladies.
