Melrose Wasps eventually ran out comfortable winners by 60-12 against Kelso Harlequins at The Greenyards on a glorious sunny Saturday, ideal for running rugby.

The hosts did not disappoint in this respect running in nine tries to the visitors two. Backs and forwards combined well although they did not have it all their own way against a big Kelso pack who picked and drove determinedly when the line was in sight. However it was when the ball was spun to the backs where the home side had the upper hand with a number of very good tries scored - well done to both sides for an entertaining match.
