After a shaky start Scottish ended this match in style and provided the home crowd with a convincing victory scoring 36 unanswered points and securing their fifth win in a row.

Sedgley Park after this match will be disappointed at missing a number of early chances and then through ill discipline and a dominant Scottish display collapsing in the last quarter.
For most of the first half it was Sedgley Parks match as in short succession Stephen Nutt scored two penalties’ to put the visitors ahead by 6 points to nil. Nutt then added to his brace of penalties by scoring a try created by Wainwright who broke the defence by a powerful run through the middle.
Scottish then came back into the match when on the half hour Alex Clarke went over for a try adding to his impressive tally for the season so far, which James Brown converted.
Sedgley Park hit back with a well worked try for Louis McGowan. Shortly after James Brown added a neatly taken drop goal on the 34th minute.
Scottish then started to exert their superiority onto the match and through Tim Holgate scored a try just before half time coming from a well worked backs move in the mid field.

MPU

The half time score was 17 – 18 to Sedgley Park.

The second half proved to be a much better performance from Scottish and certainly judging by the way they started the half would suggest some choice words were spoken by head coach Simon Amor in the interval.
Scottish started to dominate the match through their forwards and took a struggle hold on the match with a try coming from Alex Karonias early in the second half.
After further sustained pressure from the Scottish pack two tries were scored in quick succession; Ben MacDougall taking a great line to score after some good handling.
The Scottish pack continued their dominance in a solid performance where Josh Brown was at the centre of everything leading to a much deserved FirstCape man of the match award.
J P O’Reilly coming on as a replacement to Alex Page at scrum half with 25mins before the end benefitted from yet another Scottish forward drive to score down the blind side to make the score 36 – 18 to Scottish.

Sedgley Park during the last 10 minutes collapsed under the pressure of the Scottish pack which led to a disastrous spell of ill discipline when they lost three players to the sin bin. Richard Wainwright being sent from the field for a dangerous tackle, Alistair Atkinson for collapsing a maul and the Juan Crous for punching. During this spell and after several collapsed scrums the referee Simon Harding had no choice than award a penalty try to Scottish which Brown duly converted to win the match 43 – 18.
