THE AYRSHIRE Bulls journey in the FOSROC Super 6 Sprint Series cup came to an end after their second defeat in as many weekends.

They welcomed Watsonians to Millbrae this Friday, June 3, hoping to make amends after the previous weekend’s one point loss to Stirling County.

Though the Sprint Series leaders came with the potential to secure the title, and that was looking likely as the match reached the final stages.

With less than ten minutes remaining, the Bulls trailed 24-0, with the travelling side knowing one more try would secure a bonus point, and that they could not be caught by second placed Stirling County before they face off next week.

However, in a remarkable last eight minutes, the Ayrshire side scored three unanswered tries thanks to some top drawer rugby.

The loss confirms the Bulls final league standing as third, but head coach Peter Horne is optimistic that the side will be back competing for silverware after the post-season.

He said: “To be honest we are not too far away! If we tidy up our set-piece, we will be in a much better place. The last couple weeks we have struggled there.”
