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.
