There was less than a fag paper separating these sides before the start, so a close encounter always looked to be on the cards – and so it turned out. But there was high drama as Watsonians staged a remarkable second-half fightback to steal a game that had looked beyond them. Stirling dominated the first half, with the vast majority of territory and possession, and led deservedly at the break, thanks to touchdowns from Reyner Kennedy and Shaun MacDonald, both goalled by skipper Jonny Hope.
They say revenge is a dish best served cold and there was certainly a nip in the air as Heriot’s made amends for their defeat at home to Stirling on the opening day of the league season. The Edinburgh side were good value for their win, outplaying County in all areas during the opening 40 minutes, after which they led 26-0. Hooker Michael Liness got the ball rolling when he finished a forwards’ move after five minutes, Ross Jones converting.
Stirling County continued their renaissance with a second successive win, this time over newly promoted Marr. Marr were first to show when Olli Rossi drove over after six minutes, though Stirling came back swiftly when Logan Trotter went under the posts for a try that Jonny Hope converted. County augmented their advantage with a Kerr Gossman touchdown, but on the stroke of half-time Mackenzie Pearce closed the gap to 12-10.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
