Round 12 in the Meldrum Cup had given the Dukes a much improved performance narrowly going down to the competition leaders. Round 13 would be just as tough, taking on the 2nd placed Liverpool Cougars. Liverpool is 1 point behind the lead with 2 games in hand. 1 of which is against the Dukes this Saturday.
It was a weird day down at McKay, it had threatened rain all day, the wind would blow, then it would stop, and the sun would peak itself out and then go away and hide.
Come 3:15, there was no-where to hide on the pitch with both sides very large and ready to rip in.
The Dukes had the kick off and began by putting pressure on the Liverpudlians. The ball was returned back down the pitch and the dukes got to try out their new set piece.
2pts - Billy
3pts - Hooper
