HILLFOOTS RFC endured a tough away day over the weekend as they fell to a 54-0 loss to league leaders Panmure.

Foots 1st XV travelled to the Dundee side to take them on despite the rough conditions, with the visitors also missing some of their bulkier forwards.

Panmure controlled the game from the first whistle, scoring four converted tries and leading by 28 points to nil at the break.

The second half was a much similar showing as Panmure dictated the half, with another four tries scored and three converted.

A miserable day out came to an end for Hillfoots with the final score sitting at 54-0, but credit to Panmure’s defence, they held firm whenever Foots broke through.

Head coach Graeme Simpson said: “It was a challenging afternoon against the league leaders.

“All credit to them, they played really well and showed why they are in the position they are in.

“Time to dust ourselves off with the visit of Falkirk next week.”

Next up for Hillfoots is a visit from Falkirk 2nd XV to Tillicoultry Park this Saturday at 2pm.
