Goes without saying this result was a total embarrassment to Hawick Rugby Club.
Still looking for their first win of the season, the Greens travelled to Goldenacre for this BT Premiership match and were trounced 70-7 against a rampant home side helped hugely by the lack of tackling from the visitors.
Twelve tries in all, with five converted, from Heriots formed a complete rout and the Greens will have to lift themselves big time for the visit to Glasgow Hawks next weekend.
Vice captain, Lee Armstrong, did manage an interception try in the second half converted by full back Ali Wear.
The coaching staff know only too well they have a lot of work to do. As head coach, Darren Cunningham, commented – “Again, very disappointing performance and result. We prepared very well through the week and worked hard to put some of the wrongs right from last week then took the field and froze! Heriots we're clinical in taking their chances but we gifted them numerous tries through poor defending, lack of communication and physicality. We as a coaching team know what we need to do and we will make sure the players get the message and work extremely hard to put it right. “
