Title win for St Boswells

St Boswells have won the East League Two title with a convincing 86-5 win over Leith, the last team to beat the villagers over two years ago,

Needing one point to secure the title, The Saints wasted no time in achieving their goal, launching into a clinical performance which produced 14 tries in total during the game.

St Boswells try scorers were: Greig Wylie (3), Graeme Lothian (2), Terry Skeet (2), Ian Dawtry (2), Andrew Haig, Adrian Donoghue, John Lebbon, Ben Gilchrist, Stephen Hill with Dean McCracken kicking the rest of the points.

Elsewhere Berwick as good as won the East League One title, and promotion back to the National Leagues, after beating Hawick Harlequins 36-3.

Technically however celebrations can’t start until they see if Dalkeith can put 200 plus points over the Quins in just over a week’s time.

After the high of defeating the league leaders in their last outing, it was back to earth with a bump for Hawick Linden when falling 40-14 away to Duns.

No-one could have foreseen the final outcome following an impressive start by the visitors, with some early good play rewarded by a Kirk Ford penalty goal which brought up 200 points for the season for the young stand-off. Graeme Anderson grabbed an early try for Linden with Ford kicking the remainder of the points.

Langholm had no answer to the speed and power of a good looking Dalkeith side who won 67-12, at Milntown.

The visitors ran in six tries in the first half, of which four were converted, to lead 38-0 at 
the break, and added a further five tries with two conversions in the second period.

Langholm had a try from centre Jack Fraser, who snapped on to a loose visitors pass and jinked in from 20 metres out 
and Nathan Smith converted.

The other came from coach Garry Brannan, who went on as a replacement, and went over near the corner after pressure from the pack.
