The S1 Rugby Team continued their winning ways with wins for both the A and B squads against a combined Eyemouth/Duns side at the Wilton Fields on Friday afternoon. The A squad kept a clean sheet again with five unanswered tries (18-0) whilst the B squad outscored the same opponents by three tries to two (9-6). Tries were scored by Tom Huggan, Mathew MacDonald, Corey Tait, Clark Graham, Robbie Stewart, Marcus Brogan, Martin Goldie and Adam Crombie. Three of these tries were converted by Cian Riddell.
The games were both won up front with some excellent work from the likes of the menacing and clinical Marcus Brogan, Corey “The Beast” Tait, Justin Tait, Lewis Tait and Robbie Stewart backed up by hard-working tight forwards like Jordan Graham, Harry Scott, Paul Collinson, Kye Brydon and Adam Crombie. The two scrumhalves- Tom Macaskill and Blair Grant provided excellent service to Cian Riddell who was able to let loose his hard-running and tackling backs like Blair Knight, Fraser Renwick, Tom Huggan and the extremely elusive Clark Graham who asked questions of the opposition’s defence every time he touched the ball. The Man of the Match Award goes to Cian Riddell for his innovative play and overall control of the game. Well done, Team Hawick!

The SI Rugby Teams continued their winning ways with two hard-fought performances in driving rain against physically larger opponents at Peebles HS last Saturday. The A Team kept a clean sheet for the second week in a row and ran in six unanswered tries through Blair Knight, Tom Huggan, Marcus Brogan, Robbie Stewart, Kobi Watson and a joint effort from Steven Cook and Adam Crombie. Kobi Watson displayed great pace as well as typical Teri toughness and played with what was later revealed to be a fractured thumb for most of the game.
The Hawick boys dominated the game because of the unrelenting pressure up front from the tight forwards like Adam Crombie and the much improved Evan Kirkpatrick as well as some team tackling from the likes of the back row of Robbie Stewart, Corey Tait and Marcus Brogan. Debutante Kye Brydon and backs like Blair Knight also stood out for their uncompromising defence. The half back combination of Blair Grant and Cian Riddell worked very well in providing some excellent ball to an exciting backline who provided some skilful running and well-worked tries. . The A Team Man of the Match Award goes to Marcus Brogan for doing all the simple things well.
The B Team also dominated their opponents for most of the match and ran in ten tries to four through captain Martin Goldie (2), Tom Macaskill (2), the elusive Fraser Renwick (2), Sean Clifford, Charlie Comley, Brandon Watson and vice-captain Bruce Collison. Jordan Graham, Brandon Bouglas and Bruce Collison had good games up front and harried the opposition whilst the half back combination of Tom Macaskill and Martin Goldie demonstrated the strength in depth which this squad possesses by running the game in a very efficient manner. The B Team Man of the Match Award goes to Thomas Macaskill for his courage and all round game management.

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!
