Linlithgow come out on top after tough test

Linlithgow 13

Portobello 3

Linlithgow Rugby Club’s 1st XV hosted Portobello on Saturday and took to the field without Matt Dixon and Stuart Jamieson but had managed to call back Graeme 
McCallum into the second row.

Portobello were below the Reds in the league but after the loss against bottom Langholm the Reds were wary.

The visitors got off to a stronger start than the Reds although both sides had difficulty with the rain and a slippy ball.
