Round seven of the Borders Semi-junior Sevens series saw Jed Thistle bounce back from the previous week’s defeat and run out winners at the Selkirk Youth Club tournament.

They beat their nearest rivals for the overall title, Melrose Wasps, in the semi-final by 17-5.

In the other semi, hosts Selkirk battled it out with Gala Wanderers, with the latter running out winners by 19-21.

Saturday’s results mean that Melrose have to win this weekend’s final tournament at Jed to overtake Thistle –who would have to go out in the first round.
