DESPITE their impressive performances over previous weeks, Selkirk couldn’t come up with a win against Hawick on Saturday at Philiphaugh.

Selkirk opened the scoring with a try from Dashton Wellman who outpaced the Hawick defence after a good ball from James Bett. Rory Banks then converted to start the scoring off at 7-0.

Unfortunately Hawick retaliated just a few minutes later as their number seven Rory Scott ran in to score, with stand-off Lee Armstrong converting, to bring the scores equal at 7-7.

It was a tense game for the next ten minutes, until Hawick managed to pick holes in the home side’s defence and put another two tries past the Souters within five minutes, courtesy of Darcy Graham and Sean Goodfellow, leaving Selkirk trailing at 7-21.

Due to infringements in the scrum, Selkirk were awarded a penalty just over the Hawick 22, and decided to go for goal, with Banks managing to make it through the posts for an extra three points.

However, Hawick wanted more before the half time whistle, taking advantage of Selkirk being a man down due to Dashton Wellman being shown a yellow card for a high tackle. Number eight Keith Davies burst through the Selkirk defence after a maul to leave the score at 10-28 as both teams made their way to the changing rooms.

As the second half came, Selkirk were starting to look more alert, showing signs of a stronger attack, when South African second row Yaya Hartzenberg ran under the posts to record his first try for Selkirk. For a while after this, it looked like Selkirk might manage to get back into the match, until a flurry of Hawick tries followed within 15 minutes. Craig Russell, Darcy Graham and Steven Anderson all touched down for tries, with Armstrong converting two, leaving Selkirk and their fans wondering what had just happened.

A consolation try from Craig MacDougall after a good passage of passing showed that Selkirk could still score against them, but this didn’t prove very much, as Hawick had the last word, running over twice before full-time, thanks to Shawn Muir and Darcy Graham again, leaving Selkirk bitterly disappointed as the final whistle blew, bringing another defeat of 24-59.

Speaking to selkirkrfc.com after the match, Selkirk coach Neill Wood said: “It was obviously a very good Hawick side, and you’ve got to be at your best to beat a team like that, and unfortunately we weren’t at our best this week. It doesn’t get any easier in this league, so we’ll take this defeat on the chin and just hope that we can show our best in the next match.”

Selkirk will continue to hunt for their first win in the league in two weeks’ time when they take on Glasgow Hawks at Old Anniesland, on Saturday October 17th.

The P3s impressed again on Sunday in Jedburgh, coming second in their age group in only their second tournament. Once again, they showed a lot of promise, and demonstrated some good rugby amongst themselves.

The P4s managed to fight their way to the final through some tough opposition, but unfortunately were narrowly defeated in the final, despite their best efforts, after following up from their impressive first display in contact last Sunday.

The P5s once again showed their rugby ability, and managed to win their second tournament in a row, after demonstrating some excellent rugby and team play. A fantastic display from both the players and coaches!

The P6 team played well again, but unfortunately couldn’t make it to the final this time, but enjoyed another good tournament with some well-played rugby.

The P7s made it to the final again, but fell to defeat again after some big hits, coming from both sides, injured a couple of players. Monroe Job, one of these two players, was unfortunately taken to hospital due to torn ligaments, but here’s wishing him a speedy recovery!
