Selkirk ‘A’ extend hot streak

Derek McFadzen - scored hat-trick of tries.

FOR the second successive week, Selkirk ‘A’ breached the 70-point mark in recording a convincing win over Howe of Fife 2nds in Saturday’s National 2nd XV League Division Four East match.
Because the visitors travelled down to Philiphaugh with only 12 men, home players Robert Conway, Glyn Owen and Douglas Gunn agreed to don opposition colours. Sadly Owen later had to be taken to the BGH with a suspected broken ankle, although the injury is now thought to be a ruptured tendon.
Ahead 36-7 at half-time, Selkirk’s points came from tries by ex-coach Derek McFadzen (3), David Reive (2), Neil Brown (2), Jim Ross, Darren Hulme and Chris Kemp.
Fly-half Mark Easson also notched two tries, as well as landing six conversions. Centre Gary Lyall completed the home scoring with two conversion kicks.
