The Robbie Dyes saluted Stuart Hogg, who is Scotland’s most capped former Hawick player, and Darcy Graham, who is the most recent ex-Hawick player to wear his country’s blue. National head coach Gregor Townsend was the special guest and he also paid tribute to the pair, describing them as a credit to their clubs and communities.
