  • Melrose got the job done against Stirling, but will they be as competitive next week, when they are likely to have more than half a dozen players involved in the Club XV match the night before facing a Hawick team fighting to avoid the relegation play-off? For the credibility of the league, we must hope so.



  • An excellent run of form came to an abrupt halt in the Myreside mud when Watsonians paid a hefty price for their sloppy start – meaning a trip to the Greenyards for the play-offs is now the agenda. We’ve entered the business end of the season and we’re really going to get a gauge of how competitive Stevie Lawrie’s team can be against the big hitters in this league when they are firing on all cylinders.
