Melrose march into the Premiership Play-offs
Monday, February 5th, 2018
Melrose destroyed Marr at Fullarton Park 43-0 with a display of power and grace in the mud to ensure that they get a home draw against the fourth place team in the BT Premiership once all the games have been played. Hawick’s unbeaten run of five wins came to an abrupt end at Watsonians who won the game 59-5. With Boroughmuir beating Stirling County it means Hawick have a slender lead over the City team, but Glasgow Hawks and Stirling are now very much in the relegation battle to ensure a tight end to the season.
In National 1 Gala won 16-10 at Dundee High to remain third. Selkirk were 26-0 down at the break at Aberdeen Rugby but won the second half 14-0 thanks to a couple of Clinton Wagman tries. But it wasn’t enough. In the other game involving a local side, St Boswells move up to second place in Division 3 following a third win of the season against Hillhead-Jordanhill.
