The Greens travelled to Malleny Park to play second placed, Currie Chieftains, on Saturday and after a disappointing first half they came alive for the last half an hour and scored four tries to gain a bonus point, which will be invaluable.
Currie have some excellent backs and their power and penetration saw them dominate the first half and were worthy 27-5 leaders at the break.
The Greens had some slack tackling in the opening stages and the home team took full advantage. Winger Gary Munro took a well worked try in the first half for the Greens.
The home side started the second half strongly with another try before they brought on a number of replacements.
The Greens now had their best spell and managed to keep the ball from Currie for long periods and Craig Hamilton, Ali Weir (with a lovely dummy) and Shawn Muir all scored tries and along with Weir’s two conversions gave the visitors a bonus point.
They were unlucky not to get a second bonus point with some sustained pressure in the last five minutes.
The league has a break now and, despite not having a win yet, the signs are there if they can play a full game it will come. December sees two home games against Stirling County and Heriots and an away trip to Marr.
