SELKIRK 'A' XV CONTINUE THEIR WINNING WAYS AGAINST DUNDEE TITANS


DUNDEE TITANS 12, SELKIRK 'A' 31

SELKIRK 'A' XV travelled north on Saturday to face a previously unbeaten Dundee Titans team, with hopes of another win to follow their victory over Stewarts/Melville the previous week.

In the blustery conditions, it was Selkirk who started well with an early try courtesy of Neil Darling, created by a good carry and offload from Peter Forrest, which Rory Banks then converted.

Dundee quickly came back into the game with good work from their forwards to allow their scrum half to dive over and score in the corner.

Half time came and went, with Selkirk taking the lead in the second half from a well worked try by Frazer Anderson, converted again by Banks. Dundee soon retaliated, with their second try coming from their forwards.

Some good defensive play from Sean Nixon led to a turnover to the 'A' XV, who quickly attacked up the pitch and scored through Scott Marshall. Dave Allan followed soon after, touching down for his first try of the season for Selkirk.

Dundee were quick to attack after these tries, with the 'A' XV soaking up a lot of pressure, but the defence held firm, with the backs eventually seeing an opportunity to counter attack, resulting in a Rory Banks try to wrap up the match, leaving the final score as 12-31 when the referee blew for full time.

A great performance from everybody involved, with a special mention going to Ross Purves who showed his versatility by filling in as a prop.

The 'A' XV take on GHA next week at Philiphaugh, where they will be looking to keep this impressive run going.
