Heriot’s Blues Men V Melrose Rugby Match Report (courtesy of The Offside Line)

Melrose were on the road to Heriot’s Blues and it was a cracking contest at Goldenacre. The home side, who had won at Dundee HSFP in week one, were 12-3 up with half-time approaching before Melrose scored two crucial tries. The first one came from Donald Crawford and when David Colvine added the conversion to his earlier penalty it was 12-10. The second converted try came from James Brown and it was 17-12 to the visitors at the interval.

Gavin Wood went over for another converted try in the 52nd minute to make it 24-12 to the Borderers before Heriot’s pegged things back. A Colvine penalty made it 27-17, but again Heriot’s fought back and it was 27-24 heading into final stages.

With four minutes to go, Lewis Mallin intercepted and showed good footwork to go over for the bonus point try and give Melrose a 34-24 triumph.
