MUSSELBURGH RFC head coach Grant Talac praised his side after an historic win at Gala on Saturday. 

The dramatic victory, earned thanks to Danny Owenson's injury-time conversion of Conor Slaven's try, was only Burgh's second-ever triumph over the Borders club, and first for nearly 60 years.

Talac told Courier Sport he was "absolutely delighted" with the effort from his side.

He said: "The boys showed some true character coming back from 21 points down with 15 minutes to go."

It was not all good news for the Burgh head coach, who had concerns over a scrum which struggled throughout Saturday's clash. 

He added: "We'll need to have a look at our scrum, which creaked at times, during the week."

Talac, who works for East Lothian Council when he's not in charge of the Stoneyhill side, was keen to reflect on the good work by his charges. 

"On the opposite side of the coin we dominated the lineouts coupled with some great driving play around the breakdowns."

And he hailed match-winner Owenson for his injury-time conversion of Slaven's late try. 

"To be fair to Danny he more often than not comes up with the goods in these pressure goal kicking situations," he said

"He certainly delivered on Saturday again with his half back partner Donald Kennedy also putting in a man of the match performance."

And the Burgh head coach was already looking forward to the weekend's trip to Philliphaugh as they take on Selkirk. 

Talac added: "Selkirk play quite similarly to Gala which gives us a real opportunity to continue where we left off and get another win."
