Campbeltown rugby players are guaranteed a Murrayfield match in the final of the Scottish Schools’ Bowl.

On Tuesday South Argyll Schools (SAS) played Eastwood High School in the Glasgow semi-final and Campbeltown’s Kyle Colville made a great impact scoring a pair of tries.

The game was played in good conditions and the team were looking forward to competing again and building on their recent quarter final performance.

An early converted try for SAS took them into the lead but they were soon pulled back to 7-7. This was how the first half finished.

Early in the second half SAS went behind when Eastwood scored but failed to convert.

SAS then pulled ahead following some great play and were soon leading 24-17.

With some excellent rugby on show from both teams and in a hard fought contest SAS schools edged out Eastwood with a final score of 24-22.

Other try scorers were Ewan MacArthur and Lochlain Ellis.

The final will be played on Wednesday December 5 at BT Murrayfield, opposition still to be confirmed.

Before the semi-final an SAS spokesperson said: ‘The boys have done well to reach a semi-final in their first season as a team.’
