North Berwick 90

Dunbar 0

NORTH Berwick dished out a 14-try derby destruction of winless Dunbar at Recreation Park on Saturday.

Ben Moffat led the way with four tries, while there were also hat-tricks for both Charlie Elms and Liam West.

Four more players – Roan Frostwick, Gareth Walker, Alex Williams and Chris Lekkas – helped themselves to a try, with 10 conversions sealing the massive win.

North Berwick were dominant throughout and led 43-0 at the interval.

The onslaught continued after the break, with the hosts quickly through the half-century mark against a Dunbar side struggling for players and form.

There were a barrage of tries after the break as North Berwick neared three figures.

Victory was their fifth in a row over their county neighbours, a run that stretches back to March 2015 and takes the Recreation Park club to within a point of East 1 leaders Hawick Harlequins.

Dunbar, meanwhile, are rooted to the foot of the table, with just two points from their opening five matches.

Mark Coull, Dunbar head coach, reflected on a “tough game”, while looking ahead to their home clash with Duns on Saturday

He told Courier Sport: “With the exception of the North Berwick game we have been in [each] game and even leading in most of them.

“We are really keen to perform for the full 80 minutes.”
