Annanís under 16ís continued on their winning ways with a stunning 39 Ė 12 victory away against Biggar under 16ís. The Annan youths outscored their more illustrious opponents by five tries to two with E. Currie gaining a hat trick and J. Nelson and A. Wallace scoring a try a piece. The scoring was completed by C. McCann adding two conversions. Of all the Annan XVís this seems to be the one to watch as they pile up win after win with some great team performances.
On Sunday Annan played host at Violetbank to a touring side from the Grand River Collegiate Institute from Kitchener, Ontario, Canada. The tourists brought with them two sides at under 18 level- a boys team and a girls team. The under 18 boys side were pitted against the Dumfries & Galloway Warriors, the team made up of the cream of the regions secondary schools, who ran out winners by 47 points to 7 scoring 7 tries to 1 in a thoroughly entertaining match.
The under 18 girls team were entertained by the Annanís Ladies XV and in a hard fought tussle against an extremely athletic Canadian side the hosts ran out eventual winners by five tries to 1 with Lydsay Povall and Sarah Hornsby scoring a brace of tries a piece and Lara Brodie scoring the fifth.
Annanís Mini Section had a real treat on Sunday when they provided part of pre-match entertainment in a Tag Tournament at the Newcastle Falcons v Wasps match at Newcastle. The lads and lassies had a great day out and were able to see several of their rugby heroes play as both teams sported several Scottish internationalists between them.
