Rugby: Bad-tempered season finale for Lasswade

Lasswade v Hawick
Lasswade v Hawick

Lasswade 15 Hawick YM 24

While Perthshire were unsuccessfully competing with Dalziel to avoid the third relegation place from Championship League rugby, this contest was about fifth position where Hawick had been tenants for several weeks.

With both the captain, Gavin Brown, and vice captain, Richard Borthwick, playing their final competitive games, the home side wanted them to go out on a high but, alas, it was not to be.

This weather-disrupted season has ended with Lasswade just in the lower half of the table.

Next season, promoted Peebles will likely be replaced by Jedforest and relegated Morgan and Perthshire most likely by Aberdeenshire and Livingston.
