21st September 2019 - CURRIE CHIEFTAINS 2XV 13, HAWICK FORCE 19

The Greens Force team travelled to Malleny Park in the sun drenched EH14 area of Edinburgh and, despite a few boys missing, dug in well and came away with a 19-13 victory.

It was the home side who took the lead midway through the first half when they scored from a lineout deflection which was also converted.

Soon after Kirk Ford missed a penalty kick at goal but centre Aaron Redpath showed good awareness to score a good try which Ford did well to convert to level the scores.

Only other score in the first half was a penalty goal for the home side to give them a 10-7 lead at the interval.

The Force went ahead when prop forward Ruaridh Macleod scored from close range and Ford again converted to give them a 14-10 lead.

Five minutes later the lively winger, Matthew Bell, scored a fine try after full back Morgan Tait had shown some magic to put Bell into space.

Only other score was a penalty from Currie.

A good result for the Force on the road and special mention to Ruaridh Macleod who had his first game back after a year out injured with a serious ankle injury. Man of the Match for the Force was skipper Grant Huggan who played in the back row and was at the heart of all the action for his side.
