Darcy Graham to gain 1st International cap

A big congratulations to Hawick High School former pupil Darcy Graham who will be gaining his 1st International cap tomorrow (Friday 5) night!

Hawick Wanderer’s wing come full-back, Darcy Graham, won the under-18 National Youth League Bowl with his club, after finishing as a runner-up in the Cup competition at under-16 level with Hawick Albion, a year previous.

Graham was included in a Scotland under-17 training squad and made a try-scoring debut at under-18 in the game against England under-18 at Kingston Park, Newcastle, in March 2015.

A talented athlete, he won the Borders Athletic Youth Championships in 2011, and used his sprinting prowess to contribute toward’s Hawick Wanderers success in the abbreviated game, as they won the junior Kings of the Sevens in 2014.

He is the nephew of 24-times capped lock Scott MacLeod.

Former pupil to gain 1st International cap

Congratulations to former Hawick High School pupil Lisa Thompson who will gain her 1st International cap on Friday (5 February) night against England. Former pupil of Trinity PS and Hawick HS, Lisa Siobhan Thomson got involved with rugby at Jed Minis.

She played through the pathways, East of Scotland under-18s, Scotland under-18 and under-20, and for clubs Langholm under-15 – with whom she won the Brewin Dolphin under-15 Cup in 2012 – and Murrayfield Wanderers under-18 before joining Melrose Ladies.

Currently a student of Applied Sports Science at University of Edinburgh, she was awarded the Keri Holdsworth Player of the Match when Edinburgh beat St Andrew’s in the Varsity Cup in 2015.

High School U16’s v Biggar

The High School U16’s travelled to Biggar for their 2nd round tie in the Scottish Schools competition and came away with a hard earned 21-17 victory.

Hawick always knew this would be a tough test against a Biggar side currently riding high in their respective Conference Division. Two evenly matched sides gave everything they had for 70 minutes, with the result hanging in the balance right to the death.

Both sides managed 3 tries a piece on the day, however ultimately it was the accurate boot of Hawick’s James Delaney (stepping up from the U15’s) who proved to be the difference with 3 successful conversions, two from out wide, whereas Biggar only managed 1.

Whilst it must be said this was not one of Hawick’s best performances, the determination shown by the whole squad kept them in the game, particulaly in the latter stages when the significanly larger Biggar players were throwing the “kitchen sink” at the Hawick boys. Biggar could actually have clinched a late victory had it not been for a “bone-crunching” touch-line tackle from full-back Mully Bannerman, when it looked as though the Biggar winger, who was in full flight, must score.

Try scorrers for Hawick were Andrew Mitchell and Mully Bannerman (2), with the boot of James Delaney securing all the extras.

All 25 players in attendance had a good run out against Selkirk. The forwards dominated for most of the game and produced some excellent pick and drives from the likes of Harry Scott, Zac Cochrane, Sam Scott, Justin Tait, Marcus Brogan, Robbie Stewart, Stephen Cook and Corey Tait. Tom Huggan had an excellent game in his first outing at inside centre whilst Clark Graham was a tower of strength at full-back and carried the ball very well to earn himself this week’s Man of the Match Award. Well done, Team Hawick! 8 out of 8 wins in the Scottish Borders!

S1 Rugby VS Kelso HS Friday 23 October 2015

The S1 Rugby squad followed up their emphatic eight tries to one victory over Jedburgh Grammar School just before the October break with a hard-fought win(19-16) over their counterparts from Kelso HS on Friday afternoon. Hawick struggled to shake off some rustiness particularly in terms of support play against a physically imposing Kelso side but managed to win the battle up front through some aggressive tackling and running from the likes of Corey “The Beast” Tait, Marcus “The Silent Assassin” Brogan, Jordan Graham and Harry Scott. The backs, who were well marshalled by Cian Riddell, had to put in some strong defensive work but still showed glimpses of their attacking ability through some elusive running by the likes of Mathew MacDonald, Tom Huggan, Blair Knight, Charlie Comely, Lewis Knaggs and the dynamic Clark Graham. Tries were scored by Corey Tait, Marcus Brogan, Blair Knight, Lewis Knaggs and Cian Riddell who also converted four of these tries to earn himself the Man of the Match Award. Well done, Team Hawick!
