Tonight’s SRU Special General Meeting at BT Murrayfield is the latest chapter in the ongoing Super 6 saga, with the vexed question of where the second XVs of the winning ‘franchises’ will play in the domestic structure next season to be decided.
Heriot’s maintained their bid for a home play-off when they produced a strong second half performance to overturn a half-time deficit and take all five league points. But the hosts were given a stern test before eventually shaking off their capital rivals.
Ayr made things hard for themselves, but in the end their magnificent defence enabled them to stifle a powerful second-half Boroughmuir performance to grab four points and stay on top of the Tennent’s Premiership.
Co-captain Fergus Scott scored the winning try with five minutes to go as Currie Chieftains defeated Tennent’s Premiership leaders Ayr 24-23 yesterday to honour the memory of Campbell Reynolds in style.
Boroughmuir issued a reminder that they are still capable of securing a play-off spot when they produced their best performance of the season to dismantle a Chieftains side that was powerless when the hosts stepped up the pace in the second half.
Melrose reached the halfway stage of the Tennent’s Premiership in a comfortable second position after adding to their string of victories with a win over Boroughmuir in a match that produced a bonanza of tries.
