Prostate Cancer Awareness

Exploring new ideas for team and club culture, Director of Rugby Ewen Robbie has supplied prostate cancer awareness ties to both the Selkirk first and second teams from the Club.
Speaking about the new venture Ewen said :

I have been looking at ways on how we can evolve our culture at Selkirk RFC and have initiated this, which I'm sure will help and also raise awareness about prostate cancer, something that has affected many people connected to Selkirk Rugby, none more so than Scottish and Selkirk Rugby legend John Rutherford.

It was very fitting that John could make the first presentation of the ties as he is a great example of someone who has put a power of work in for our rugby club as well having fought prostrate cancer.

The ties will be passed on weekly by the recipients to another teammate who they feel has done something noteworthy for the team or the club.

For us the ties represent respect for the club, the work John and others have done for the club, the chance for players to show appreciation for things done by their teammates and raise awareness for Prostate Cancer.

The First recipient of the 1st team tie was young Prop Robbie Reilly. The First recipient of the 2nd team tie was Mathew Stanners.

Selkirk hosted Musselburgh in a rearranged BT N1 game at Philiphaugh on Saturday.The Souters were desperate to get a win after two disappointing results on the road.
Selkirk got off to great start when Josh Welsh scored his first try of the afternoon in only 9 mins after a break by Darren Clapperton ,converted by Arron McColm. There was more joy for the home support when 6 mins later Clapperton finished a break from the half way line ,which involved most of the home backline again converted by McColm .
Next to score was Welsh again after some exciting running by Clapperton and Hamilton McColm adding the extra points from the touch line. Clinton Wagman was next to get on the score sheet after a lineout near the Musselburgh line the winger sneaked in from the resulting ruck on the line, McColm missing the extras.With With the home side’s bonus point already in the bag Musselburgh came more into the game and scored a converted try through their prop forward.Selkirk scored the last try of the half Welsh getting his hat trick ,McColm converting to make the half time score Selkirk 33.Musselburgh 7.
With Selkirk keeping the pressure on the home team scored another again through Welsh, from deep in their own and turning over a Mussselburgh attack Wagman ,Clapperton broke through allowing Welsh to take the scoring pass and dot down for a easy conversion by Banks .
Musselburgh game back with two converted tries, but in the last three mins Selkirk scored two converted tries from Banks and then Clapperton who ran almost the length of the field to touch down .
Best for Selkirk MOM Clapperton ,Welsh ,Reilly and Hall in an all round greatly improved display.
