Old Boys scored their best win of the season when they beat Pirates 19-3 at Tweed Street. But it was mainly a scrappy game, in which kicking played a big part in the points scoring.
Old Boys won a big share of possession in the first 20 minutes and when centre M. Moreland went in for a try it appeared the Blue backs were to have a running day.
But the Pirates' pack settled in and Old Boys lost much of their freedom. The forwards kept the game in Old Boys' favour.
The Old Boy's back movements were cut down every time by the close marking Pirates' backs but they were found wanting when the Blues forwards launched passing rushes and Old Boys' two remaining tries resulted from forward speculation.
Pirates failed to dot cross the Old Boys' line with their three points coming from a penalty goal, but they were unlucky not to touch down at least twice as their backs threw the ball willingly in the second half.
Old Boys: T. Wilson (Half back) (1) (2PG) (2Con), D. Sinclair (1) M. Moreland (1).
Pirates: R. Welsh (1PG)
