Week six of the Premiership campaign is here and there are two Border derbies in store on Saturday afternoon. At Riverside Park, bottom side Jed-Forest are going through a bit of an injury crisis and welcome third placed Hawick. Over at Poynder Park, Kelso, in seventh, take on ninth placed Selkirk with both sides having suffered losses in week five. Expect plenty of physicality in these matches with big crowds in attendance.
