Peebles and GHA were without a win between them so something had to give at The Gytes and it was the home team who came up with the goods in style. Peebles scored five tries in a win that takes them off the bottom – with the injury-hit Glasgow side taking over at the foot of the table.

Peebles scored four first-half tries through David Reay, Robbie Cumming, Njord Maciver and Mark Smith. They led 26-10 at the break and soon after the resumption a fifth try, from Trevor Keane decided the issue. Keith Nisbet landed one conversion while Scott Nichol slotted over two.

GHA had opened the scoring with a try by James Eddie and others followed from Andy Scott and Nick Barrett. James Noonan converted two and also put over a penalty.
