Loch Lomond RFC began life in West Division Two with a 60-5 defeat away to Lenzie on Saturday.

As expected the hosts started at a high pace and with powerful running; camping Lomond deep in their own half.

They opted to run penalties rather than kick, but were unable to breach Loch’s organised defence.

Lenzie took the lead from a kick after Craig Norrie was penalised, and subsequently sin binned, after giving away Lomond’s fourth penalty.

Lenzie took advantage of this and forced through a try out wide, taking advantage of the extra space.

In periods Lomond had possession they looked dangerous.

Driving mauls and quick rucks gave the backs ball to run with and Brown nearly benefited from this.

He popped up at the end of a move only to be stopped short of the line, with the opposition managing to clear their lines, just before half time.

The second half started off in similar fashion to last week, with Lomond scoring early on.

A number of moves saw Lenzie give away penalties, and like Lomond, reducing them to fourteen with a sin bin.

From the resulting penalty and line out Drew McGinty benefited from clean ball and scored his second try of the season.

Lomond were matching Lenzie’s attacks with their defence Matt, Wain and Scott Newport halting the opposition at key points.

Mathieson in particular put in another strong performance coordinating his back line.

The visitors were on the end of another yellow card when their flanker was sinbinned.

Going for the ball he pulled off a high kick Connor McGregor would’ve been proud of, unfortunately Bailey was first to the ball and received the kick square on.

With only Dennison on the bench Loch were short of replacements as eight regulars were missing and Lenzie used their changes well. This was key as the last 15 minutes unfolded gaps appeared and the hosts ran in several tries.

The only moment of note for Lomond in the last ten minutes was another yellow card.

Not to be outdone by his namesake Craig Newport was sin binned after being adjudged to knock the ball on deliberately, despite making an effort to catch it. Drew McGinty was selected by the home team as man of the match. This Saturday sees Strathaven visit Bonhill with a 3pm kick off.

LOCH LOMOND: Dynowski, Brown, Norrie, Carruthers, S.Newport, Miller, Wain, McGinty, Maitland, Mathieson, Bonner, C.Newport, Matt, Campbell, Bailey, Dennison.
