22nd September 2018 - HAWICK FORCE 32, GHA 2XV 14

This was another impressive performance from the Force lads who lived up to their billing as the most exciting, attacking and progressive team in Borders Rugby with an emphatic victory over their city rival.

Making it three wins from 4 this season they collected a bonus point win with ease.

The force were led by David William Lowrie who belied his tag as the old man of the team but running the show and even keeping up with some of the play. He was joined by the stiff arm of his brother Gary, who was having his first outing in over three years and yet only caught the harsh word of the referee once, showing that maturity does come with age.

The magnificent Kirk Ford ran the line hard from full back and also with his kicking boots, defensive try saving tackling and big smile he won the accolade of Man of the Match deservedly.

Early tries from young McKean (showing his dad what a real sport is), as well as Keith McNeil thundering over and another from Jae Linton meant that the force were dominant in the first half.

Impressive off the bench efforts from stormer, McAulay and from Mathew Bell (who had starred for Linden just a few hours earlier) meant that when the latter added a further try in the second period, th game was put to bed even if the strong squad ethos meant that many of the lads would not see their own beds for many hours to come. the team win big and togather and celebrate in the same way. A great return on the sidelines from Scosha saw him directing operations with the assistance of coaches Matty 'the Ork' Douglas and Jungle Drums Robertson.

Well done lads, especially as the team is so young and developing.
