Melrose RFC found even more reasons to be cheerful on a sunny Sunday afternoon at the Greenyards.

Following their male counterparts success the previous day, Melrose Ladies defeated RH Cougars by 24-22 in their Sarah Beaney Cup semi-final.

In a nail-biting finish the home side held out against their well drilled Edinburgh opponents.

Leading the charge was Scotland International centre Gillian Inglis who scored all three Melrose tries. Nicola Halfpenny put in an immaculate kicking display, converting all three tries and adding a penalty for good measure.
