WAID hosted Glasgow side Hyndland on Saturday in a final pre-season friendly before their league rugby campaign starts. Waid struck the front after 10 minutes when centre Kieran Doak made the most of an offload in midfield and spotted a wide, empty space outwide for winger Lucas Miskiewicz to race through, collect the pass and score.

Captain Shaw added the conversion to make it 7-0.

Waid continued their quest for points when prop Duncan Fraser passed out to full-back John Murray, who dummied his opposite number and broke through the line to score Waid’s second in the corner.

Waid’s captain Adam Shaw, picked up and effortlessly danced through the Hyndland defence to score Waid’s third.

After gaining possession, the visitors crashed through the midfield to finally get on the score sheet.

Adam Shaw brilliantly collected his own kick ahead to score again for Waid before converting his try.

Waid did not start the second half as they’d hoped and discipline let the home side down, as they gifted yards and eventually a try.

The power from the Hyndland prop could not be contested as he crashed over the line to put them in a good position for a comeback.

Waid’s Miskiewicz put in his second score of the day to stretch the advantage.

Rory Doak hit Hyndland hard and drew in the defence before offloading to centre Allan Drysdale, who spotted the gap and scored an incredible solo try.

Hyndland again fought back and some sluggish defence allowed them to bag a couple of tries.

Waid’s attack continued to impress and notched up a final two scores before the end – one from centre Kieran Doak and another for replacement winger Martyn Smith, after a terrific pass from substitute hooker George Barnett.

This brought the curtain down on a successful day for the East Neuk team.

The first league game will be played on Saturday against Panmure in the Caledonia Midlands East League 3. Kick-off is at 3pm.
