In the final against hosts Boroughmuir, Howe took an early first half lead but two tries from Boroughmuir gave them a 14-12 advantage at half-time.

Howe started the second half with a score under the posts to put them five points ahead.

Muir countered again with two scores then Howe replied with a try to narrow the gap to 26-24.

Howe nearly stole the tie but for a knock on in the dying seconds. Howe scorers were Horne (two tries and two conversions) and Imrie (two tries).
