THREE of East Lothian’s six rugby clubs remain unbeaten after the second weekend of fixtures.

Preston Lodge, North Berwick and Dunbar all maintained their 100 per cent records.

In the top flight, Musselburgh slipped to a 32-21 defeat against Selkirk, having defeated GHA seven days previously.

It was a frustrating defeat for the East Lothian side, who had led three times in the opening half an hour at Philiphaugh. A trio of Danny Owenson penalties had put Musselburgh 9-8 in front but it was a try on the half-time whistle that ultimately swung the game in the home side’s favour.

Selkirk led 15-9 at the break and never looked back as they went 22-9 up.

Colin Arthur scored for Musselburgh to bring Graeme Paterson’s men back into contention before the hosts stretched their advantage.

Musselburgh would score the final try of the game, Gregor Tait touching down under the posts, but it was Selkirk who won 32-21.

There was better news for Preston Lodge, who followed up a narrow 12-10 win over Glasgow Academicals on the opening day with a comprehensive victory at Whitecraigs.

Preston Lodge were 43-14 winners and move up to fourth in the National Division Two table.

In the regional leagues, there were victories for Haddington, Dunbar and North Berwick.

The Neilson Park side bounced back from defeat on the opening day against Ross High to pick up a 40-24 triumph over Portobello.

Ross High could not match that opening-day performance, however, and came unstuck against Linlithgow, losing out 47-17.

The West Lothian side led from the start and were 14-3 up at the half-time interval.

Ross High attempted to mount a fightback and reduced the deficit to four points early in the second half.

However, Linlithgow scored four tries in 15 minutes to put the game to bed and ran out comfortable winners.

Meanwhile, Dunbar, who had been left on the sidelines on the opening weekend, were winners against Livingston.

The 46-32 victory sets them up nicely for an away trip this weekend against Inverleith, who North Berwick defeated 38-10 on Saturday at Recreation Park.

In that game, the hosts were dominant from the first kick-off and raced into a 24-0 half-time lead thanks to tries from Nick Hart, Stuart Lorimer, Findlay Graham and Struan Donachie.

The second half saw North Berwick securing their possession and getting into good positions but tries were harder to come by.

Harry Grierson and John Gardner got on the scoreboard, both converted by Finlay Graham.

Inverleith had a decent backline who worked well together and received their due reward with two tries.

All six East Lothian teams are back in action this weekend, with the 100 per cent records on the line.

Preston Lodge are up against a Peebles side who have won one and lost one of their opening two games.

Meanwhile, North Berwick and Dunbar, who both play in East Division Two, are both on the road.

Dunbar make the trip to an Inverleith side yet to win this campaign, while table-topping North Berwick face off against Corstorphine.

Musselburgh will be looking to get back to winning ways in the Premiership. This weekend, they welcome an Edinburgh Academical side who got their season under way on Saturday with a 45-19 victory over Jed-Forest.

Finally, in Division One East, Ross High welcome Duns to Tranent, while Haddington will be looking to build on their victory at the weekend when they travel to Forrester.
