Accies intercept ‘Rose record

Edinburgh Accies29

Melrose21

THERE were shocks aplenty at Raeburn Place last weekend as Edinburgh Accies not only gained a win, but prevented Melrose claiming a crucial bonus point.

The victory included two interception tries to take the Borderers’ unbeaten record and knock them to second position in the Premiership table.

Alun Walker and Austin Lockington scored the Melrose tries, with Joe Helps kicking the rest of the points for the black and yellows who go head-to-head with Gala on Saturday for bragging rights and the chance to go back to the top.
