Langholm are still looking for their first league win of the season after suffering defeat to Leith at Milntown last Saturday, but they did manage a bonus point for scoring four tries.
It looks like it could be another tough season for Langholm with player numbers at a premium and they struggled to get 15 together against Leith, and that included coach Gary Brannan.
Langholm swent ahead after 10 minutes with a try from No.8 Eddie Turner, but the difficult conversion was missed. Leith countered with some good constructed runs and the Langholm defence held out for a while, but after 17 minutes Leith crossed for a try which they also converted to make it 7-5 in their favour.
Langholm were giving a gutsy performance and had their moments in attack. Big, striding home lock Alan Tyler gathered the ball in his own half and took off on a powerful run, handing off two defenders before going over to score and the conversion by Sam Henderson, who had a useful game at flyhalf, put Langholm 12-7 in front.
Leith broke through for a converted try after 35 minutes to go back in front at 12-14. The visitors then added another try and conversion to make it 21-12 at half-time.
With 55 minutes gone, the visitors scored another converted try to make it 28 -12.
Langholm stepped up a gear and a Henderson try, which was not converted, made it 28-17. Another unconverted try from Leith took the score to 33-17 and they soon added another with the kick again missed and it was 38-17.
Langholm captain Alasdair Cavers then went over for a try.
