Let Battle Commence...

We can have no complaints about the way the squad went about their business against Peebles. A ruthless first 40 minutes showed we have a skilful group of players laced with a wee bit of pace. However it’s a very different kettle of fish this week as we head to Hawick for the first BT Premiership fixture against the Greens. I have no doubt JD will have a few headaches as he selects the final 20 for this week, but that’s a positive leap forward as competition is a very healthy ingredient when looking to strengthen the squad. It’s a young squad which lacks a bit of  experience as a group and Mansfield Park is a very tough place to begin the campaign so last week's result has no bearing what so ever on this week. Whilst every club looks to secure home wins, Hawick in particular make it a very difficult task to take that from them. The intention is to play entertaining rugby, the squad looks fit and ambitious but there are nine other clubs who have similar ambitions therefore it will be a very long and hard season, so hang on to your hat for episode 1. It would be a brave man who could guess the score in the sweep for this one - 1.15pm kick-off, your support will be very much appreciated!!
