A rather disjointed performance at Raeburn Place on Saturday resulted in another loss for Hawick which in turn puts them in a rather precarious position at the foot of the league table.

Having led 13-5 at half time the travelling Teri’s looked on course for victory over fellow stragglers Accies, but, it was the hosts who had the finishing power with a second half performance which belies their lowly league position.

Lee Armstrong’s trusty boot provided two early penalty goals for the visitors before a piece of Rory Hutton magic unfolded. The versatile stand-off carved open a static home defence for Nick Mactaggart to touch down, Ali Weir landed the extras to send the Greens in at half time justly ahead.

Playing a far more expansive game after the restart Accies got themselves back into the game. Poor tackling and unforced errors by Hawick didn’t help the cause with the back division, in particular, coming apart at the seams, allowing Accies to run in another three tries with no reply for a bonus point win.
