In great rugby conditions, Waid took to the field for another league match.

This time, a Fife derby was on the cards as Fife Southern Sharks from Rosyth travelled along the coast to Anstruther where they were met by a Waid side who were still struggling through injuries amongst other commitments.

Nevertheless, many of the Waid over 35s team, The Buccaneers, had donned the Waid FP crest to lend a hand and show how invaluable their experience is.

The game started with Fife Southern grabbing an early score as a slapped back ball from the lineout gave the opportunity for a free for all as the ball lay in the try area.

Fife Southern were first to get to the ball and racked up the fist score which they were able to convert.

Not long after, Waid’s danger man, Kieran Doak was able to get one back for the home side as he broke through the line to make it one score apiece.

Both teams were struggling to break each other’s defence but finally the away side stuck as they were given another easy try as the Waid’s back’s hands let the ball hit the deck and bounce into the hands of the Rosyth winger who ran in the easy score.

Things went from bad to worse when Waid lock Robbie Fleming was sent packing after a tussle with his opposite man and Waid were now down to 15 men.

However, Doak was once again able to slip through the opposite team’s line to make the score even at the half time whistle.

The second half saw Waid play with the wind which was a huge advantage, but scrappy play was still occurring.

Waid found themselves lucky on occasion when the Sharks dropped balls when what could have been an easy score.

Fife Southern almost found their lead again had it not been for the tackling and recovery of full back David Brown who had safe hands all day.

Finally, Waid found themselves in the driving seat and two more scores form Doak and one from number eight Kato Blockley sealed the win for the home side.

Man of the match for the second week running was Kieran Doak who is sponsored by Redpath Renovations.

After the match, captain Kato Blockley said: “It was a tough outing for us, especially against a team who were playing in the league above us last season.

“With a lot of our squad unavailable, we still managed to show the Waid spirit and come away with a vital victory.”

Waid travel north next Saturday where they will play Carnoustie FPRFC.

Kick off is at 3.00p.m.
