Watsonians crowned K7s Champions as they carry off three trophies at Jed 7s
Sunday, May 14th, 2017
Watsonians were the well-deserved K7s Champions this season and they ended up with a third win in the tournament by picking up the Jedforest 7s title for the first time since 2008. This was in addition to the K7s trophy itself which has only been in their possession once before eight years ago. They also retained the Macari Cup for becoming the top non-Borders team in the tournament.
Watsonians beat Jedforest 36-19 in the final having put out Melrose 19-14 in the semi final. Jed knocked out Gala 17-15 in a close encounter which came down to a difficult conversion to win the game, which Lewis Young kicked successfully. Watch the Final here.

There was also a fun moment at the event when Callum Young scored two tries for the Jedforest President’s VII containing Jed players against their own Jedforest team and decided to celebrate them in unique style. Needless to say their game in tie 1 wasn’t the most competitive of games. Watch what happened here.
