Highland head coach Carson surprised by Kelso's heavy defeat to Cartha Queens Park


By Andrew Henderson


Highland Rugby Club head coach Dave Carson admits he was taken by surprise when he saw Kelso were on the wrong end of a heavy defeat last weekend.

Highland made it three wins out of three in the league last time out, surviving a back and forth first half to beat Gala 34-18.

On the other end of the scale though, Kelso suffered an absolute mauling, getting thrashed 98-3 by Cartha Queens Park.

That has left Kelso propping up the rest of National One going into the next round of fixtures, while Highland are one of just two teams to win all of their games.

The Greens have already beaten Cartha this season.

But Carson does not expect an easy time of it down south on Saturday just because they beat the team who dominated against Kelso.

“I didn’t expect that result,” Carson admitted.

“Especially for a borders side like Kelso, you wouldn’t expect any side to put 98 points against them."
