On a mild and sunny Sunday afternoon Melrose Ladies recorded an impressive win over visitors Stirling County.

The hosts had too many weapons in their armoury for a “never give up” Stirling side.

Within five minutes the home side were two tries up and at no time looked like losing although one or two lapses in concentration coupled with a pacey Stirling backline allowed the visitors to cross the try line on three occasions. That is not to take anything away from Melrose Ladies who chalked up nine tries of their own in what was a very good performance.

Melrose try scorers were, Lana Skeldon (3), Lisa Thomson (2), Gillian Inglis (2), Emma Pate and Megan McIver. Nicola Halfpenny slotted six conversions.
