Early breakthrough not enough
for Stormers, as Haddington call the shots
STORMERS got off to their best start of the season
in Saturday's Border Farm Feeds Championship match against Haddington 2nds at Neilson Park, going 7-6 up after
20 minutes thanks to a try and conversion by stand-off Craig Monks.
However, this was the signal for the home team to pick up their game, and just before the interval Haddington crossed
for two tries, making the halftime score 18-7 in Haddington's favour.
The visitors couldn't find any way to get through Haddington's solid defence in the second half, and the East Lothian
side took advantage of some tired legs and bodies in the Stormers team to score five unanswered tries to settle
Best players for Selkirk were Matt Robertson, who looked more at home in his preferred back row position, scrum-half
Derek McFadzen and the ever industrious Mark Dogan.
