Highland run Marr close but exit Scottish Cup quarter final
Highland Rugby Club head coach Dave Carson has praised his squad’s efforts after they pushed Premiership leaders Marr all the way in the Scottish Cup.
It was the toughest possible quarter-final draw for the Greens, but they finished one score away from causing an upset in a 17–12 loss.
But Carson believes his players left everything out on the pitch, and as such he could not have asked for any more.
“They were outstanding, every one of them,” Carson said.
“They could have won it, they should have won it and they deserved to win it the way we played. It was just a few decisions that went against us, and that turns the tide against the big sides.
“The attitude on Saturday and the work rate was phenomenal. They came off at half time and full time burst, and that’s exactly what we want to see. We want them to empty the tank every single week.
“All 20 players did that, credit to them.”
