With a lot of effort this week by some of the Stewartry players pitch one was declared fit by both teams and the referee for only the third time this season.

Two minutes from halftime good play between McCarney and Kerr down the right wing saw McCarney take the return pass and score for a second week. Mosey converted the long kick. 22-15 Half time.

Cambuslang started with a bang putting Stewartry under a bit of pressure and in the fiftieth minute scored a fourth bonus point try but again missed the conversion .22-20 Stewartry. After this score Stewartry started to play a bit more in the Cambuslangs half and were rewarded with Hogg going over for his second try and Stewartrys bonus point fourth try. 29-20. Stewartry kept the pressure on and Hogg completed his hat trick of scores for a second time this season. Mosey again added the points 36-20.
