21st October 2017 - HAWICK 19, AYR 32

Though suffering another defeat, this was a much improved performance from the Greens against a strong Ayr side splattered with pro, academy and ex pro players.

The Greens started well  and led 14-7 at half time through tries from Gary Munro and Dom Buckley with Ali Weir converting one. Ayr captain, McCallum was given a yellow card towards the end of the second half.

The visitors had their best spell after half time and with another couple of yellow cards to Rory Sutherland, allocated professional from Edinburgh Rugby, and Scott Sutherland from Ayr. Key player for the Millbrae side was stand off, Fraser Climo, who dictated the game with his strong left foot.

Scotland u20 player, Stafford McDowall, also showed up well and scored two tries in the second half as well as being awarded a penalty try and two penalty goals and a conversion.

The Greens did fight back and five minutes from time, out of position, Gary Munro, scored his second try which Ali Weir couldn’t convert.

With the BT Premiership nearly at the half way stage, this performance will give some confidence to the Greens but a long way to go to move up the league table.
