GHA 40 Howe of Fife 34
At the end of a season of ups and downs, more of the latter than the former, GHA finished on a high with a six-try win against Howe of Fife at Braidholm on Saturday. That half dozen included a genuine hat trick by Ben Addison three in a row.
Addisons first was the bonus-point try, and [...]
GHA 17 Aberdeen Grammar 29
GHA slipped dangerously towards the relegation zone with defeat by Aberdeen Grammar at Braidholm on Saturday, but it could have been so much different if they had played throughout the match in the way that they finished off. All of the home points, including three tries, were scored in the last 15 [...]
GHA 19 Dundee High 20
GHA have developed a habit which could have relegation implications if it continues: they have by one point in the last play of two successive home matches in BT National League Division 1.

GHA had to face the elements in first half, and they were probably comfortable [...]
GHA 15 Jed Forest 13
Tries by Alan Auld and Ruairi OKeefe in the third quarter were crucial in turning the game in GHAs favour against Jed-Forest in damp, soggy conditions at Braidholm on Saturday. But it was still a hard slog for the home team to edge victory in the BT National League Division 1 match.
GHA were down [...]
GHA 23 Watsonians 44
GHA and Watsonians each scored four tries at Braidholm on Saturday. But that was just about the only way the home club matched the Edinburgh visitors in the BT National League Division 1 match.
Watsonians won by scoring almost twice as many points as their hosts. Indeed, David Blair, Watsonians [...]
GHA 38 Peebles 34
Four tries by Alan Auld on the left wing proved to be the substantial basis of GHAs victory against Peebles at Braidholm on Saturday. It was the clubs third bonus-point win in five BT National League Division 1 matches this season.
Aulds third try was followed by one by Rangi [...]
