Hawick 1st XV 33-0 Accies 1st XV
Mansfield Park is never an easy venue for visiting teams and Saturday was no different. After a nervewracking opening three minutes or so, when it looked as Hawick were going to steam-roller us, we settled into a defensive mode that lasted the entire first half. Hawick had about 95% of the ball and kept us failry well pinned in our own 22, but it was only when skipper Jamie Sole was binned that they managed to put any points on the board.

Unfortunately, the second half was a different story, with Hawick scoring four tries. We got a bit more ball and made some attacks on their line, but it was their turn to be solid in defence and we just could not make anything of the chances we did get.

Our Jacoby Rugs Man of the Match was Club Captain, Jamie Sole, who once again led by example, despite the yellow card, which was for collective team infringements in the scrum. Jamie is kindly sponsored by Dropkick Murphy's.

Hawick Force 29-13 Accies 2nd XV
A tough slog for the 2s against a strong Hawick side who dominated from the off. The boys started to turn it around in the second half, taking their points tally from 3 to 13, but the comeback was not enough to upset Hawick's victory.

Onwards & upwards!
