Wallace’s men were able to pull through for the bonus point victory. Gregor Gaw, Thomas
Quigley, Robert Service and Russell Morton provided the tries.
Dumfries Saints scored just two penalties in a 42-6 loss on the road to Allan Glen’s. They nowsit second-bottom in National 3 but are level on points with both Cartha Queens Park and Hamilton above them.
Sandy Currie’s Stewartry suffered their first loss of the season with a 45-13 loss to Dunfermline at McKane Park. Ben Spence got their only try, with Andrew Picken providing the rest of the
points from the tee.
In an all Dumfries & Galloway clash, it was Wigtownshire that got the better of Annan 37-15 at London Road. Both sides have had good starts to the 2023/24 season but that five-point win moves Shire up into second place in West Region 1.

Moffat are now third in West Region 3 after a 47-26 away win to Hyndland and have a game in hand on the sides above them that could see them move to the summit.
