A LATE try from super skipper Neil Logue earned Waysiders/Drumpellier a dramatic win at Strathmore on Saturday.
The injury-ravaged National League Three promotion hopefuls were trailing 21-15 with only a couple of minutes of their match remaining.
But a move which came straight from the training ground led to Logue going under the posts with Phil MacKenzie successfully kicking the conversion.
Greg Walker and Kieran Parker had scored first half tries for W/D but the home side rallied and looked certs for the points until Logue touched down.
However, victory was achieved at a cost with head coach Jon Shaw revealing that Tobias Rostram will miss the rest of the season.
The Swedish second rower suffered a fractured tibia and his absence means more selection problems for Shaw.
He said: “We are all disappointed for Tobias, who has been a big player for us this season. The boys put in a fantastic effort as we travelled to Strathmore as real underdogs. We talked about showing belief and the players did that. They were a credit to the club.”
W/D fielded a makeshift front row for the trip to Strathmore and it could be more of the same this Saturday when Shaw’s men face Allan Glen’s.
