Ayr 33 - 22 Marr: Derby honours go to Ayr

Ayr, without hitting their straps, won this strange Ayrshire derby by five tries to four, to climb above the idle Currie into second place in the BT Premiership. But, the victory was by no means clearcut in a helter-skelter, and at times scrappy, battle.

Ayr 12 - 14 Currie: Missed kicks prove costly for home side

In the end, it came down to two missed goal kicks by Scott Lyle for the home side, but, the truth is, Currie were a long way more than two points ahead of their hosts in winning this match. Only in the set scrums were Ayr the better side and, but for a some dropped balls, the visitors might well have been out of sight by the break.

Glasgow Hawks 17-34 Melrose: Bouquet of a dozen for Rose

The Melrose machine motors on. This was their 12th league outing of the season, and their 12th bonus-point win. It was by no means the easiest victory of the campaign for the Greenyards club, but once they got a pre-half-time wobble out of the way they were well worthy of the five points.

Marr 17-29 Hawick: Greens resist late fightback

Marr were here reminded of one of the eternal truths of Scottish rugby – you cannot give a Hawick team 17 points of a start, and expect to win. Trailing by that margin at the end of the first quarter, the hosts took until the 50th minute to score – by which time the Greens had extended their lead, but, for all their fire and fury over the remaining minutes, Marr had left themselves too big a mountain to climb.
