Your News Heriots 43 - Hawick 7

On a bitterly cold day at Mansfield Park, the large home support were hoping

for something to take their mind off the arctic like weather conditions.

With Hawick now in the drop zone of second bottom position in the League

following Glasgow Hawk's win over West of Scotland on Friday Night, a

positive start to round two of this season's League campaign was essential.

Home wins are a must with the hope of pinching the odd away point or two to

haul us up the placings and avoid the Club's first ever visit to the the

lower Leagues.

Hawick certainly started the match in a positive frame of mind and played

some good rugby in the opening quarter. Ryan Hogg finished off a fine break

by Danny Landles to score under the posts which was converted by pro Calum

McCrae to go into a deserved 7-0 lead. This seemed to spur Heriots into

action and Hawick's defence did well to limit the visitors to just one

converted try and reach halftime 7 points each.

The second period can only be described as one of the worst displays ever

from a Hawick team at Mansfield Park. Numerous dropped passes, missed

tackles and countless unforced errors resulted in Heriots almost scoring at

will at times. Heriots racked up a further six tries without reply and

thoroughly deserved their victory by 43 points to 7 and the five league

points on offer. Much improvement is certainly required from all at

Mansfield Park in the remaining ten League matches.

Team:- John Coutts, Colin Murray, Keith Hedley, Rory Scott, Steven Anderson,

Calum McCrae, Bruce Campbell, Bruce McNeil, Matt Landels, Nicky Little,

Gavin Petrie, Michael Robertson, David Lowrie, Ryan Hogg and Danny Landels.
