The ground was good and a strong wind was put to good use by Drummond when it beat Limehills 19-5 in the Central-Western senior Rugby competition at Drummond in 1966.
Drummond scored all its points in the first half. In the first 15 minutes J. Hazlettt (Drummond) scored from a ruck and converted his own try and soon after kicked a penalty goal. Poor tackling by Limehills led to a try by G. Affleck, and Hazlett again converted. Ten minutes before half-time Drummond centre, B. Laughton scored from a short passing movement and just before half-time I. McKenzie the Drummond wing scored a try.
Limehills looked a different pack in the second half, and B. Cairns scored under the posts, with Greig Spencer converting after five mintues. But Limehills found the Drummond defence too solid in its desperate attempts to reduce the deficit.
J. Ronald scores two tries for Wrights Bush against Riverton in 1966.
Wrights Bush beat Riverton 9-6 in an open game at Wrights Bush. The Bush with a strong forward pack, won more scrums than Riverton but T. White won most of the lineout ball for Riverton. The half-time score was 6-0 to W.B.
In the second half two penalty goals were kicked by Riverton and a further try was scored for Wrights Bush. Bush winger, R. Rance played a dashing game, and E. Price and E. Paterson gave good support. R. Lindsay ably led the forwards.
Riverton: T. White was an outstanding forward. Half-back A. Ward and full back Henry Cleaver both featured in the backs.3
