The S1 Rugby Team got their season off to a winning start with a hard-fought match at Earlston on Friday afternoon. Hawick won by four tries to nil. Tries were scored by Cian Riddell, Corrie Tait and a brace by the captain, Justin Tait .
The match was played on a hockey pitch so there was not much room for the backs to run. However,the game was won up front by the forwards with the loose trio of Corrie Tait, Justin Tait and the irrepressible Robbie Stewart taking the lead with some hard running and tackling. The backs were well marshalled by Cian Riddell and there was some good defence and elusive running from the likes of Clark Graham, Tom Huggan, Fraser Renwick and Mathew MacDonald.
The Man of the Match Award goes to Justin Tait who played a captain’s game. Well done, Team Hawick!
Mr Renwick and Mr Hannay
