Dalkeith 30, Hawick Harlequins 7
Dalkeith are still unbeaten in league and cup despite last week’s scare and welcomed Hawick Harlequins to King’s Park for this East League 2 fixture.
Harlequins guddled the opening kick-off and Dalkeith pounced on the loose ball, taking the opportunity to drive hard towards the visitors line. However, after a couple of phases, the ball was lost in the tackle just a yard out and Dalkeith were penalised for off-side
From a 22-restart, Dalkeith controlled possession and spun it wide, Hamilton burst into the line before chipping ahead, unfortunately a knock-on in the attempt to gather halted further progress and Hawick managed to clear their lines. Dalkeith kept up the pressure and after a couple of phases from the forwards, Thomson jinked through the visitors defence, before offloading to Clugston who went in at the corner. Clugston followed this with a conversion.
