Melrose Rugby Blog
Everyone expects a fixture between Melrose and Heriots to be a high scoring game. Both clubs like to play rugby. Saturday proved what you expect isn't always what you get. The game never managed to get flowing and some of that has to be put down to the fact there were over 30 penalties awarded. The flow of the game was, let's say, heavily influenced by the man in the middle. Never the less we produced a very committed performance with everyone working very hard. When did Heriots last fail to score a try at home? I am sure it would be quite some time ago. This was a great result and it was fitting that Richard Mill was the man to slot the winning drop goal. As an ex Heriots player he gets a lot of stick from them so what a way to silence his critics.
The last 3 games are now strung out amongst weeks of inactivity but every one will be really tough. Hopefully the Currie game this week will survive the weather although we are likely to be without some of our U20s.
Although we may not be playing every week some of the boys will be playing a lot of rugby. This Tuesday the Scotland U20s play the Club International side when we will have at least 7 players involved in that.
Our aim is to get a home play off tie and with the current top 4 all playing each other in the last 2 scheduled league weekends, it's all up for grabs.
See you Saturday
