Falkirk 25 Peebles 17: Nervous ending at Horne Park

Leading more than comfortably at the break by four tries to one Falkirk looked in fine shape to add to their tally of points in the second period of play, but Peebles almost upset the apple cart and left the home side biting their fingernails at Horne Park last weekend.

Falkirk defeated but weren’t shy in the tackle

It could be said that last Saturday’s opening league fixture marked a new era for Falkirk because with only five players remaining from their previous season’s 1st XV squad it fell upon their youngsters to step up to the plate and show what they are made of at Mayfield, Dundee.
