Kelso 2nds 27, Selkirk 'A' 47


Selkirk travelled to Kelso on Saturday looking for a vital win over their Border rivals, with both teams sitting at the bottom of the table.

Selkirk were well supported from the touchlines and it wasn’t long into the game before they had something to cheer about. Some good forward play resulted in the ball heading out wide to Liam Cassidy who sold the Kelso fullback an outrageous dummy and went over in the corner to give Selkirk their first try of the day. Older brother David Cassidy added the conversion.
Selkirk scored again five minutes later; Cassidy setting up great field position with the boot, followed by a strong lineout from the forwards. The ball spun out to Matty Francis who offloaded to flanker Fraser Easson adding to the scoreboard under the posts! Cassidy again adding the extras.
Some great defensive work in the backs from Cassidy and Hamilton halted the Kelso attack on many occasions. The Souter’s added three penalties to keep the scoreboard ticking over whilst Number 8 Robert Cook was in the sinbin after an alleged side entry at a maul.
Hard carrying from Hume, McGowan and Cook set play into the Kelso 22 before player coach Jason Hendrie buried his way over for the Selkirk’s next try.
Thankfully Cassidy was available to convert the try allowing for no repeat of Hendrie’s previous weeks’ attempt on goal.

Half time score 27-0.

Kelso’s halftime team-talk turned things around for the side and the team came out of the racing blocks catching Selkirk napping and scoring two tries out wide in quick succession! The Souter’s rallied and prop Chris Fairbairn went over under the posts after good play by Hamilton and McClymont. Cassidy again adding to the scoreboard.
A great break by substitute “Rocky” Davidson from the kickoff took play back down into the Kelso 22. With some good quick balls and great hands, Hamilton went over for Selkirk’s last try of the game.
Kelso then secured their bonus try, with further two late on in the second half.
A terrific display of workrate in both attack and defence from every player in the squad, coupled with the boot of Cassidy setting up some great field positions for the forwards to dominate at set pieces.
A tense ending to the game seen Hendrie sent to the sinbin to watch out the last minutes of the game from the touchline, with Selkirk running down the clock to secure the well-deserved win.
Full time 27-47

Another massive game awaits the Souters this week, at home to Cartha Queen’s Park, where they will be looking to continue a winning streak for a second week running.

16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence is an international campaign to challenge violence against women and girls. The campaign runs every year from 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, to 10 December, Human Rights Day.
A range of events are being co-ordinated across the 16 days by the Violence Against Women Partnership with support from Scottish Borders Council, all of which aim to provide as many opportunities as possible for individuals and communities to take part.
As a part of the 16 days we will be launching the White Ribbon Campaign.
