Friendly game @ Nether Pollok, 5/10/35
|Dalziel 2nd XV:||11|
Dalziel F.P. 2nd XV 11 pts. Shawland's F.P. 1st XV 0 pts.
After last weekâ€™s win against Steppes. Dalzielâ€™s prospects for a successful season looked bright, but illness and other less serious business interfered with the team's formation and, in fact, the team commenced with one man short, more than one reserve being included in the team. Dalziel, kicking with the wind, but against the sun, pressed from the commencement of the game. The tight scrummages showed that Dalziel were not strong enough to hold Shawlnnds who, however, had a man extra in their scrum. On the other hand, the loose dribbling and scrumming on the part of Dalziel was excellent. Dalziel scored through Shanks and Hamilton (2), in the first half, Muir converting one of the tries. The second half was fought dourly, but there was no further scoring and so Dalziel retired victors by 11 points to nil.
