Results, Saturday 12 January
1st XV 37-7 Hawick

3rd XV 71-0 Thebans

Accies 1st XV 37-7 Hawick
When we played Hawick earlier in the season, we suffered a narrow loss in a game we should have won. It was obvious from the off on Saturday that the boys were not going to let that happen again and that they had put the Boroughmuir game firmly behind them.

There was a real sense of unity about the team and their determination was unquestionable. Hawick by no means rolled over for us and we had to muster all our defensive strength, not least when we received a yellow card in the first half. Hawick were camped on our line and looked certain to score, but we defended out of our socks and did not concede any points during the ten minutes.

Our attack showed real spark too and we clocked up five tries, two awarded as penalties although the first of those was actually dotted down by Robbie Kent.

Accies 2nd XV 21-7 Biggar 2nd XV
Despite having a young side, with many colts playing, Biggar gave us a tighter game on Saturday than they had when they came to Raeburn Place. Our dominance in the scrum was a key factor in our win. We retain our top spot in the league, but Currie are now only four points adrift and still have two games in hand.

Accies 3rd XV 71-0 Thebans
Despite starting the match with only 14 men (the 15th turned up a bit late), we once again showed our dominance over Thebans, helping us to build a large (648) points differential, which may prove crucial at the end of the season. We are currently top of the league but only by two points and Peebles have a game in hand.

Onwards & upwards!
