Under-strength Ross Sutherland could not batter through Aberdeen Grammar 2nds
Injury-hit Ross Sutherland were unable to make their forward-thinking approach count as they went down 39–19 to Aberdeen Grammar 2nd XV.
The Stags started with 12 forwards and only three backs due to personnel issues.
Despite a physical performance from the Invergordon outfit, they were only able to score three tries, failing to come home with a bonus point.
Head coach John Mann felt his team deserved something out of the game.
“Aberdeen produced some slick rugby and managed to play around us,” he said.
