Selkirk 'A' v Stewart's Melville 2nds

 The A team knew they were in for a tough time on Saturday long before a ball was kicked. It became apparent that numbers available were going to be down due to availability issues higher up and these spaces needed backfilled accordingly. It was positive however to see a few of the young guns get their chance of a run with the first string albeit leaving selection issues for the spaces they vacated. Not to be out done though a team was put together, "propped" up by a couple of guest appearances, ready to tackle the task in hand.

Prior to the match commencing Selkirk's misfortunes grew when Stew Mell's coach, none other than British and Irish Lion Legend Finlay Calder , introduced himself to the Selkirk coaches explaining they had a come with a very strong side, and if the match became imbalanced then he magnanimously offered to share some of his substitutes with the understrength Selkirk side.

So with all that in mind and another stirring pre-match team talk from 'Auld' Cass, the game commenced. Stew Mel immediately demonstrating their dominance with 2 tries within the first five minutes (one converted). However following this Selkirk pulled together and got a foothold, playing some decent rugby and getting in amongst it. Highlighted by a great break on the opposition 25 from young prop Matty Francis, which was laid off to Scott Clark, running in a fine try under the posts which Clark easily converted. For the rest of the half stew Mell were not allowed to show their dominance, and the opposition only managed one more converted try making the half time score 7- 19. The front 5 having put in a tremendous shift to hold the scrum on many occasions, but it was easy to see the effort had taken its toll on many of the players with
Keerun Blair putting in an excellent first half but having to retire with a head knock, and likewise Gavin Ross with an ankle injury.
When the second have commenced the tired and bruised home team allowed some easy tries to be ran in, totalling 6 with 4 converted in the half. With only a couple of serious incursions by the home side into enemy territory. However notable performances from Selkirk stalwart Scott Thomlinson filling both the 9 and 10 Jerseys – that is starting at scrum half and finishing at stand off, just in case the statement is misconstrued – having a stormer of a game, and a man of the match show from Lewis Martin, whose efforts in defence were rewarded with a fantastic interception try. Which guest player (Stew Mel sub), ex Selkirk man Alex Beveridge struggled to convert.
Game over, and retire to nurse the bruises with a couple of Beers and contemplate next week's visit to Biggar.

Team: Keyron Blare, Ruairi Wilson, Matty Francis, Liam Cassidy, Derry Alexander, Jack McDonald, Fraser Easson, Robert Cook, Scott Clark, Scott Thomlinson, Gregor Nichol, Lewis Martin, Jy Griffin, Gavin Ross, Chris Stansfield, Stephan Bristar, Arron Henderson, Craig Monks (Stew Mell sub Alex Beveridge).
