IN PICTURES: Rugby: Bute 43-14 TRI Rugby

Bute’s rugby players warmed up for the new season with a well-deserved friendly victory over TRI Rugby in Rothesay on Sunday.

After a shaky start, which saw the home side concede two converted tries in the opening six minutes, Bute recovered their composure and got back into the game with two tries of their own, by Andy Fielding and Allan MacDonald, Fielding converting on both occasions to level the scores.
