Michaelhouse edge Hilton in another schoolboy thriller

2008-05-04 00:00

The large crowd of over 7 000 spectators around Gilfillans at Hilton thoroughly enjoyed another Saturday afternoon of superb schoolboy rugby.

Michaelhouse won by three points, but it was a penalty for an off-side infringement at a tackle, late in injury time, that gave them a victory. This new off-side law — explained at the end of the article — has caused some confusion and debate and will take some time before players react instinctively to it. Referee Chris Healey did have the advantage of being in direct communication with his two assistants, and this ensured that the match was well managed.
