Your News Hawick 17 - Ayr 11

Following last week's good second half display against Heriots, Hawick

looked to continue where they left off and get this season's League campaign

back on track. The match was played in atrocious conditions throughout with

constant heavy rain and wind which in the end, suited the visitor's bigger

pack with the heavy underfoot conditions. Hawick battled all the way and as

last week, the result was in doubt right to the final whistle. Hawick had

some notable performances with Craig Charters in the second row and

debutant, Fujian Kitione Rawala at No8.

Hawick began the stronger and got off to the best start when Captain Keith

Hadley crossed for a try in the corner following some good work by Neil

Renwick and garry Johnstone. The big Ayr pack were beginning to take control

and this eventually produced a converted try by Climo, the same player

slotting a penalty to give Ayr a 10 points to 5 halftime lead.

Hawick reduced Ayr's lead to 10-8 with a Neil Renwick penalty but again the

big Ayr pack were turning the screw and the constant pressure told with

another converted try. As always, Hawick never surrendered and a Craig Neish

penalty gave Hawick hope at 11-17 behind and had the odd bounce or decision

went the other way, the result could have went in Hawick's favour. Sadly

Hawick couldn't improve on the 17-11 scoreline and as last week, a losing

bonus point was all that Hawick came away with.

Final score, Hawick 17, Ayr 11.
