Hawick YM kicked out of National Reserve League – Melrose Storm are Champions

Hawick YM have struggled this season to put a team out and the SRU have reacted by pulling the team completely out of the National Reserve League. In happier times recently YM won the title which was won last year by Melrose Storm, Melrose’s second string side.  Hawick YM became the 2nd XV of Hawick Rugby Club following the Mansfield Haugh club’s decision to pull out of the National Leagues following relegation from Division 3.  Melrose Storm have built up a huge lead at the top of the table, winning all 13 games, and with all YM’s matches counting for nothing the re-vamped table sees Melrose Storm with a 23 point advantage with only 20 points available for other teams to collect, meaning the title will go to Storm for a second year running.
