Following an indifferent start to the season Jed have dug deep in recent weeks with their latest win on Saturday shooting them another two places up the National One table.

The Border pack was impressive with props Connor Hogg and Paulo Ferriera and lock Grant Stewart in particular showing up well and with pace and guile in the backs in the shape of Young brothers, Lewis and Gregor.

Several heavy drives by the Borderers, together with the mobility of back row men Michael Weekly and Graham Robson put Musselburgh under severe early pressure as the visitors attempted to consolidate their league position.

Lewis Young (2), Grant Stewart, Gregor Law, Robbie Shirra-Gibb, Fraser Harkness and Danny Ritchie all touched down for Jed with Gregor Mein converting five.
