Currie Chieftains 78 Selkirk 'A' 5

12/01/19

Selkirk A team suffered a heavy defeat after travelling to Malleny Park with 16 players on Saturday.
With several players playing out of position including forwards Liam Cassidy at Stand off and Callum Hume at centre, and with both coaches Jason Hendrie and Jordan McGowan, and manager Donnie MacKenzie included in the squad, this fixture was always going to prove an uphill struggle from the start.
However the score does not truly reflect the pure guts and determination shown by those who pulled on the jerseys to fulfill this league game, with standout performances from 1 to 16 to not only compete against a well drilled Cheiftans pack and streamlined back division, but to provide an entertaining game with determination in abundance from the Souters.
Down 43-0 at halftime the boys in blue, unwavering in spirit, proceeded to attack the Currie line and were awarded a try by Jordan McGowan after almost 20 well worked phases.
The Philiphaugh players continued to throw the ball about and were unlucky not to be score further tries. Only the resilience of a Currie backline who had all experienced first team rugby this season kept the score down.
Special mention must go to the whole team who traveled to fulfill this fixture, and played their hearts out for the eighty minutes against the unbeaten Chieftans.

FULL TIME SCORE 78-5

Cartha started the game at great pace and kept it up until half time when they seemed to run out of steam. In the first half Cartha scored first through the boot of Burrows kicking a long range penalty kick after 10 minutes, Selkirk s only reposed in the half was a penalty kick by Banks after 14 minutes.
Then scrum half Campion ran in from 22 metres unopposed for a unconverted try ,minutes later winger Nyangweso scored a unconverted try after some good play from the Cartha back line.

Upcoming Fixtures

Saturday 19th January.

Selkirk v Dundee HSFP (3pm)

Selkirk 'A' v Dundee Titans (2pm)

Past Players Club

Wishing all Past Players a Happy New Year.

At the weekend Selkirk RFC hosted basement boys Cartha Queens Park to Philiphaugh, though the gap in the league did not represent in any way the quality of rugby the visitors could muster on the day, with Cartha leading 15-3 at half time.
However, Selkirk rallied and produced a bonus point win, with tries from Luke Pettie, Calum McColm, Scott McClymont and Henry Bithray, winning by 31-15.
This leaves Selkirk joint 3rd in the Tennent's National League Division 1, five points behind the leaders Marr.
With nine games left in the league, anything can happen, and this weekend Selkirk travel to Aberdeen, so fingers crossed for a result up by the Northern lights.
Selkirk 'A' welcome a fixture this weekend also, with an away fixture to Currie Chieftans. After a month without a game the 2nd string will be keen to get a game and also a win. Good luck.
We hope to see you at some of these games to give our boys that wee bit of support from the sidelines.
