Mackie U16's
Dundee Eagles
Sun 29 Apr TBC - Cup

So near and yet so far!

Under 16's go down fighting in seasons finale!

Despite a heroic effort by all who took part in the Mackie squad for Sunday's final, the U16's went down to their big city opponents.

The squad had to dig deep due to injuries and exam call-offs but stepped up to the challenge they faced in a very imposing and physically strong Dundee side. Our lads still showed some excellent skill, some great passages of play controlling the ball, and indeed were camped in the Dundee 22 during a concerted period of first half pressure. However they could not make the break through and put the points on the board that their efforts deserved. Though Mackie fought until the end Dundee ran in several scores and defended well when tested. Mackie did score a consolation try towards the end but not enough to pose a threat to the cup heading down the A90 to Tayside.

So no trophy to cap a great season but this U16's side, who are already enthused at the potential they have for next season as U18's, have been tremendous. They are rightly proud of their season, their style and passion, their ability to entertain, their ability to play really good rugby. Thanks and well done!!
