Jed-Forest A 15, Selkirk A 15

Rory 'Banks' a draw for Souters



SATURDAY'S game proved a very hard game for Selkirk, which did enough to get a draw. Selkirk started well, but a well-drilled Jed team withstood the onslaught and scored a good unconverted try from a scrum near the line. This stung Selkirk into action, and Rory Banks scored three penalties for a 9-5 interval lead.
The second half saw Jed score a quick try from a rolling maul. After 10 minutes, Banks converted another penalty to put Selkirk back in the lead at 12-10.
But Jed scored another try again through their forwards controlling the ball close to the line and again it was unconverted. Selkirk attacked in the final 10 minutes, but scored only a Banks penalty to tie the game.
