Warriors on club duty

Stirling County went down 14-24 to Melrose in an Integrated Tournament match at Bridgehaugh today.

The match was originally scheduled for Friday but was called-off due to a waterlogged pitch. Although playable the Bridgehaugh pitch was still very heavy and the constant rain made handling very difficult. Glasgow prop Lee Harrison played for Melrose after a spell out through injury.

Roland Reid and Joe Naufahu turned out for Stirling but the conditions made it difficult for both sets of backs to put together any positive moves. Doddie Weir played his first game in a Melrose jersey since 1995 and was dominant in the lineout throughout the game.

Boroughmuir went down 19-35 to Aberdeen GSFP at Meggetland on Saturday. Glasgow's Tommy Hayes, playing at inside centre, scored 20 points for Aberdeen with a try, three conversions and three penalties while fellow Warrior, Rory McKay weighed in with a try for Aberdeen. Glasgow stand-off, Calvin Howarth scored two conversions for Boroughmuir on his return to Meggetland and partnered Warriors scrum half Chris Black.

"I was very excited about playing here again," said Howarth, who has broken into the Scotland A side this season. "It was just disappointing that the result didn’t go our way. I only trained once with them and trying to get the game flow the way it's been in previous weeks is very difficult."

Hawick went down 14-30 to Jed-Forest with Rory Kerr forced off after 6 minutes through injury. Glasgow Hawks beat Currie 30-7 at Old Anniesland to stay top of the Integrated Tournament table with Aberdeen just ahead on points differential.
