Helensburgh RFC and Lomond School’s combined rugby teams got off to a good start at the weekend, with all the sides winning against Lenzie Academy.

The S1s got their season off to a great start with a seven-try away win.

Playing on a full size pitch for the first time did not phase the young players, who worked hard to move the ball into space right from the start of the match.

The final score was a convincing 26-15 win for Helensburgh/Lomond.

Boswell had an excellent debut and Carmichael tackled well, with Chamberlain showing great adaptability playing wing, scrum-half and prop.

Saturday was a perfect start to the season with a full team of 15 players at S2 against an evenly matched side from Lenzie.

There was an impressive start from Lomond/Helensburgh as they opened up the Lenzie defence with a quick try from team captain Andrew Jackson Leach.

The score was evened up with a try from a rejuvenated Lenzie, and the second half started with Lenzie delivering a first minute try to give them the lead.

Lomond/Helensburgh responded with a formidable run from Finlay Macken, with experienced kicker Conor Niblock converting.

Lenzie’s next try cancelled out by a power drive try from Mackenzie Lennox, converted by kicker Niblock.

Lenzie’s fate was sealed by the grit of Mathew Dunn for a final try, Niblock again adding the conversion.

The Lomond/Helensburgh U15’s travelled to Lenzie with 11 players on Saturday morning with debutant Powell having a man of the match performance in his first ever game of rugby.

A good defensive performance provided the foundation for win after a shaky start.

A new look Lomond/Helensburgh U16 team won their first match together, beating Lenzie Academy 52-0.

The hard work put in by the boys over the summer paid off with their physicality in the contact dominating the opposition as well as the speed at which they moved the ball in attack.

The team had a long journey to play Argyll Schools in Campbeltown on Thursday in the Scottish Schools Cup, a competition that the U16s reached the final of last year.

The Lomond/Helensburgh U18 side got their season off to a positive start on Saturday morning, winning 50-5.

Tries were scored by Byrne (2), Calderwood, Simmons, King, C Fletcher (2) and Court.

Court also had four conversions, with debutant Adam converting one himself.

Despite nearly half the team stepping up from the under-16s there was great link play between all the players as well as effective communication.

Working on their defensive organisation is now a priority as the team are aware of how dangerous they are with the ball in hand.

The U18’s had their first cup fixture of the season when they faced Biggar High School in Helensburgh on Thursday afternoon.
