SELKIRK ‘A’ 5, HAWICK
AN experienced and committed Hawick ‘Quins side proved too much of a handful for Selkirk A’s young team in Saturday’s
friendly fixture at Philiphaugh.
The home side suffered an early setback when prop Kieran Thomson was helped from the field with a painful foot
injury, his place being taken by Sam Mackay. Ironically, because the visitors did not have adequate front row cover,
scrums throughout the match were uncontested.
Selkirk took an early lead through a try by teenage winger Frazer Anderson, but a hat-trick of scores by ‘Quins
utility forward Ricky Kiore (one of which was converted by Adam Hall) saw the Hawick team run out winners.
