Ladies up to second

Stirling Cty Ladies22

Melrose Ladies34

Melrose Ladies visited Bridgehaugh in confident mood, but they were met by a determined and skilful Stirling County Ladies side.

The hosts were first on the scoresheet when they secured a good try following excellent handling. But it did not take long for the visitors to respond and although never behind, it took until the final 10 minutes of the match before the result was put beyond doubt.

Special mention goes to the Melrose pack, who were outstanding in the scrums with Megan McIver and Lana Skeldon both in great form.

Cliché it may be, but a win’s a win and with six tries to four, Melrose thoroughly deserved the victory. This moves the Borderers to second place in the BT Women’s Premier League, with RHC to play at the Greenyards this weekend – all support very welcome.
