Another great weekend for the club, with the 1st and 2nd XVs recording fine wins against tough opposition.
The 1st XV were drawing 13 all at half time in Jedburgh, our points coming from a converted try by Andy Hughes and two penalties from Seb. A try from Mike Hanning 15 minutes into the second half edged us into a 16-18 lead, then an exchange of penalties left Jed 22-21 up as the game slipped into injury time. A concerted effort from our pack then led to Willie crashing over in the corner to secure a fine 22-26 victory.
Injuries to Seb and Hughesy took the shine off the win to a certain extent, but the fact remains that we are now the only undefeated team in the top three Divisions of Scottish rugby, and sit 5 points clear of Jed at the top of Premier 2.
You can view highlights from the match on the Borders Rugby TV website.
The 2nd XV recorded a fine 18-10 win against Stirling County at Inverleith and now sit three points clear of Currie at the top of Reserve League 1.
The Mighty 3s lost for the second week in a row, going down 17-24 to Preston Lodge 2s at Inverleith.
There will be no website updates over the next week, but I’ll bring things up to date week commencing 24th October.
