Wins for Gala and Melrose but Hawick thumped in Glasgow – Jedforest remain unbeaten
Saturday, October 1st, 2016
Gala posted a much needed win at home to Watsonians 25-15 at Netherdale to give them four points in the BT Premiership. Watch highlights here. Melrose sneaked past a stuffy Stirling County team to record a 25-17 victory at the Greenyards to stay in the Top Three, but Hawick couldn’t back up their win last week against Boroughmuir and crumbled to Glasgow Hawks by a huge 78-13 scoreline. Ironically Boroughmuir went on to take Ayr’s unbeaten record 24-11 and who would have thought that would happen?
In BT National 1 there were some big scores, with Falkirk and Jedforest remaining unbeaten in that division with their fifth straight wins. Jed hammered Hamilton 62-19 on the road while Edinburgh Accies recorded their fourth win of the season at Philiphaugh, comfortably disposing of Selkirk 31-10. In Division 2 there were wins on the road for both Kelso at Ardossan (38-36) and Peebles at Aberdeenshire (41-38). St Boswells lost their unbeaten record n NL3, going down 24-21 to Dalziel.
In the East Leagues there were wins for Berwick and Hawick Harlequins in Division 1, and Hawick Linden and Langholm in Division 2.
