Musselburgh 2nds 25, Selkirk 'A' 20

Selkirk A travelled to Pinkie Playing fields in Musselburgh once again in hope of securing a much needed win on Saturday.

However with player coach Jason Hendrie injuring himself in the warmup the omens werent looking good for this young second string.

It was then further compounded when promising forward Andrew McColm had to leave the field with a brocken collar bone.

Never the less the players reacted well with some neat inter play between backs and forwards with Fraser Easson providing the link at scrum half and Josh Mackay, making a return to rugby after a knee operation, instrumental at stand off.

But after two quick tries by the home side, the Philiphaugh men found themselves 12-0 down after 15 minutes play. Jordan McGowan came on to add weight and strength to the scrums which seemed to steady the ship for the visitors. Further pick and drives from Liam Cassidy and Matthew Francis in the pack and darting runs from Frazer Anderson and Lewis Martin continued to put Musselburgh on the back foot but once again some slack defending resulted in the home side breaking through again to make the score 19-0.

Some telling kicks by full back Gavin Ross pinned 'Burgh' back into their own 22 and after some fine driving mauls by the Souters Derry Alexander used his strength to barge over for an unconverted try to make the half time score 19-5.

The second half was a revelation in the fact that it was mainly played camped in the visitors half with Selkirk throwing everything they could at Musselburgh, with the home side pack now tiring. Keiran Monks was looking dangerous with ball in hand and produced some telling runs down the wing. With both Robert Cook and Ruairi Wilson punching holes in the defence the try was inevitable and with some quick hands Selkirk produced a fantastic try with Josh Mackay crossing the line with Fraser Anderson's conversion sailing between the posts to bring the score to 19-12. A further penalty kick by Anderson made the score 19-15 and you could feel another try was inevitable and it duly came. McGowan and Robbie Reilly inched close with some bulldozing runs but is was scrum half Easson who managed to wriggle his way over the line to put the boys in blue in the lead with an unconverted try to make it 20-19. With time running out Musselburgh rallied and in the dying minutes squeezed over the line to retake the lead scoring wide on the left to make the final score 25-20.

Past Players head across The Irish Sea

Past Players visited Ulster at the weekend, not to play rugby but to accept a kind donation from a club wishing to help a charity close to home here in the Scottish Borders.


Scott McColm, Bryan Hoggan and Ali Heatlie travelled to Dromore Rugby Club to attend the game between Dromore XV versus Grosvenor XV which resulted in a hard fought 12-7 win for the home team.

After the game Ex Captain McColm, who was a team mate of Doddie Weir in the South of Scotland team, accepted a cheque for over £1000 for the MND Foundation. The money was raised from various functions held at the club along with a kind donation from the Harshaw family.
A huge thank you must go to the community of Dromore and the surrounding area who helped raise this magnificent total.

Selkirk 'A' 14 - Biggar 2nds 19

Conditions were far from ideal as both teams looked to secure points in this Tennants National Reserve League Division 2 encounter.Selkirk A faced the wind in the first half with the forwards dominating up front with a series of pick and drives. Forcing Biggar onto the back foot a try seemed forthcoming and was soon delivered when veteran stand off David Cassidy sliced through the opposition defence with a deft show of pace and guile to put the home team in front. Cassidy coverted his own try to put Selkirk in an early lead 7-0. With the wind and rain increasing to their advantage, Biggar pinned Selkirk back into their own half and after some neat interplay from their backs, Biggar got on the scoreboard with an unconverted try.

Ex Club Captain Scott Tomlinson brought all his experience at scrum half to keep both the pack going forward and the back line moving, with Kieran Monks on the wing making hard yards after returning this week from New Zealand.

However with halftime approaching Biggar once again managed to break through the Selkirk defence to score a converted try to bring the score to 7-12 for the visitors at the half time whistle.

Selkirk started strongly in the second half with Harry Borthwick carrying well up front along with prop Matthew Francis.

With both teams tiring,holes were appearing in both defences and it was Selkirk who breached the line first. A kick ahead by Callum Anderson looked to be rolling dead, but with a mix up in defence, young Anderson pounced to make his scoring debut at Philiphaugh with a well taken try. With a difficult conversion to come Scott Clark, just back from injury, calmly slotted the kick from out wide to give the Souters a 14-12 lead going into the last period of the game.

Sustained pressure from Biggar continued with Selkirk conceding numerous penalties, and after a warning from the referee the inevitable happened and Biggar were awarded the penalty try, with Ruairi Wilson receiving a yellow card in the process after a high tackle prevented the visitors a score.

With time running out the Referee blew for full time, with Selkirk's only reward being a losing bonus point.

Final score 14-19
