Well done to the six Selkirk players that represented Borders U15's and U18's respectively against East Lothian
in their first competitive game at Netherdale last Friday.
The girls have been training for the past three months compared to some of their team members from other schools
and counterparts who are currently involved in girlís teams around Scotland.
The girls were fantastic and very enthusiastic throughout. Hopefully this, alongside a developed program next year
that will see the girls training from the start of the year along with regional fixtures, a Selkirk R.F.C / Selkirk
High School womenís team could be on the horizon.
A GREAT DAY OUT FOR SELKIRK SCHOOLS
DOWN AT PHILIPHAUGH
WELL done to all schools, pupils and staff who attended last Thursdays 'Towns Cup'. The John Rutherford shield
was hotly contested by five schools and over 80 pupils from the Selkirk cluster.
A round robin format of six teams across two pitches resulted in a final between Knowepark and Kirkhope and Yarrow.
The tie went to extra time (golden try) with both teams having scored 5 tries in regulation time, but Kirkhope
and Yarrow just pipped it.
All that were watching were thoroughly impressed with the standard of rugby from all teams and players involved,
both Rhinos and Non-Rhinos. Well done again to Knowepark and Kirkhope and Yarrow for an excellent final which will
undoubtedly be a very hard one to beat in terms of quality in future years.
Winners - Kirkhope and Yarrow
Runners Up - Knowepark
Best Boy - Dylan Torrance (Philiphaugh)
Best Girls - Ella Penman (Knowepark)
Best Rhino - Oliver McClymont (Yarrow- one to watch)
