Melrose top 50 points again as they head the BT Premiership
Saturday, September 10th, 2016
Melrose ran in seven tries at the Greenyards to once again take all five points in their match against Currie, running out 52-22 winners. The City side were denied a try bonus because of the strong defensive work from the home side. That win enables them to stay top of the table with maximum 15 points in the BT Premiership. Watch highlights here. Gala were unlucky not to pick up a win at Ayr. They ran them close, going down 27-24 in the end, gaining a losing bonus point but not quite managing a try bonus, but Hawick were taken apart at Goldenacre, losing to Heriot’s 53-10 in a one-sided affair which saw the champions finally record their first win of the season following two straight defeats in the league and a loss in the Charity Shield.
In BT National 2 Jedforest beat Edinburgh Accies 16-10 at Riverside Park, but a weakened Selkirk side lost heavily at Dundee HSFP on the road 61-20. Kelso lost at Biggar in their NL2 encounter, with Peebles also finding themselves on the wrong side of the result at newly-promoted GHK, while in NL3 St Boswells made it two out of two with a win at Perthshire.
Into the East Leagues and Hawick Quins enjoyed a 42-15 win at Duns in the First Division, while in EL2 all the local sides lost.
