CURRIE moved into fourth position in the BT Premiership after a high-scoring game in which each side scored bonus points

The win boosted Currie’s confidence, but the result left the gallant Souters at the foot of the league.

Selkirk trailed 27-3 at the interval and fought back after the break to close the gap to three points, but Currie showed their power to pull away in the latter stages.

Currie used the difficult conditions well and Rory Hughes and captain Ross Weston each scored two tries, with Ross Nelson touching down and two others coming from driving mauls.

John Semple added four conversions and a penalty.

Selkirk, who gave a debut to South African Leon Du Plessis, who only arrived earlier in the week, scored tries from Callum McEwan (2), Josh Welsh and Max Gordon, with Jack Cuthbert kicking three conversions and a penalty.

Before the game, there was a minute’s silence for Jim Inglis, the club’s former Scottish internationalist, who died the previous week at the age of 87.
