Hillhead Jordanhill 22
Melrose made it three bonus-point wins out of three matches played on Sunday at the Greenyards against Hills.
However, it was the style and spirit of the win that impressed.
Whilst out-muscled in the scrum and at times the rolling maul, the home side stuck to their task and displayed back play that was out of the top drawer, coupled with forward determination that was the cornerstone of the success.
This latest victory included five tries, three conversions, two penalties and, for good measure, a drop goal.
This Sunday sees them away to last year’s champions, Murrayfield Wanderers.
