MELROSE were lifted to second position in the Premiership this week following a classy second-half performance.

John Dalziel’s men looked the better team throughout, but took a while to turn their territorial and possession advantage into points.

After two successive defeats the Melrose coach was happy to take the points. “I sensed as we got on the bus, the attitude was right today,” he added.

Austin Lockington and Graeme Dodds were the try scorers for Melrose with Joe Helps kicking the remaining 16 points.
