Portobello High School followed their senior counterparts beating Boroughmuir 26 points to 14 to go through to their Cup 2nd round – next opponents will be known on Friday. Portobello FP beat Broughton 39 – 7 in their Shield match at the weekend.
4 tries (Gavin Inkster scoring two) and 2 conversions saw Portobello beat Boroughmuir who scored 2 goals at the High School pitch. Lots of early season mis-handling from both sides made for an error strewn match but Portobello just had the edge with greater possession and were always in front.
Portobello HS have Conference fixtures on Saturday against Musselburgh but with the Grammar’s S6 on a weekend trip, the Under 18 fixture will be played at Stoneyhill on Tuesday 4th September at 5pm
