BBC Scotland Report: “Scotland recovered from a rocky start to revive their Nations League hopes by cruising to victory against hosts Armenia who finished with nine men. Vahan Bichakhchyan’s early opener exposed a nervous visiting defence. Stuart Armstrong’s swift reply was against the run of play, but Arman Hovhannisyan was then shown a red card. Armstrong supplied another fine finish seconds later and John McGinn and Che Adams added to home misery before Kamo Hovhannisyan was sent off late on.” BBC SPORT SCOTLAND FULL REPORT: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/61675624 REPORT ON SCOTTISH FA WEBSITE: https://www.scottishfa.co.uk/news/scotland-win-in-style-in-armenia/?rid=1192 2022 – Scotttish National Team Videos and News from matches involving the Mens A Team HIGHLIGHTS | Republic of Ireland 3-0 Scotland | UEFA Nations League June 13 HIGHLIGHTS | Scotland 2-0 Armenia | UEFA Nations League June 10 HIGHLIGHTS | Scotland 1-3 Ukraine | FIFA World Cup Play-off Semi-Final June 3

Full-back Harry Patterson collected the ball that had been kicked down field. He manages to get the ball away to Matt Currie who off-loaded to Lomond MacPherson who galloped in for the opening try of the game, converted by Lee Millar. On the half hour mark scrum-half Sean Kennedy ran in a score for Stirling County after Marcus Holden made a break with Logan Trotter in support who passed out to Kennedy to secure the try, Holden then added the extra two points on offer. HALF-TIME: Watsonians Rugby 7-7 Stirling County When Stirling were penalised for hands in the ruck, Millar opted to extend the hosts lead through a fairly straightforward penalty for a man of his experience. County took the lead for the first time in the game with 46 minutes gone thanks to an Angus Fraser try and another on the 56th minute by Stevie Hamilton (both converted by Holden) gave the visitors an 11 point lead with 20 minutes to go. On the hour mark Watsonians got the maul moving and hooker Cal Davies secured the ball down over the try line, with Millar adding the conversion. With the clock gone 80, Watsonians replacement Jason Baggott plucked the ball out of thin air to run in an intercepted try to earn Watsonians not on a seventh consecutive win, but the title of FOSROC Super6 Sprint Series Winners. (Millar added the extra two points on offer too!)” FULL-TIME: Watsonians Rugby 24-21 Stirling County ASSOCIATED LINKS: https://www.scottishrugby.org/super6
