This Saturday sees one of Border rugby’s most storied rivalries take-place between Hawick and Melrose, but in what was once a contest that decided national titles is now a stark reminder of the have and have not’s of Scottish club rugby.
Darren Cunningham announced tonight (Sunday) that he is stepping down as Hawick head coach after watching his side suffer their seventh consecutive defeat on Saturday against relegation rivals Boroughmuir.
The dark clouds of relegation loom large over Hawick, but an away trip against fellow BT Premiership strugglers Boroughmuir on Saturday can go along way in clearing so much-needed relief, according to Greens assistant George Graham.
Scott Booth: Scotland must stick with manager and the plan
Genetically modifying Scottish footballers isn’t what Scott Booth believes is required to alter the qualifying fortunes of the country. Change should be resisted on all levels in the Scotland set-up is the firm belief of the 22-times capped former SFA youth coach.
Darren Cunningham admitted his Hawick side are lying face-down on the canvas after a fifth consecutive defeat, but is convinced they can pick-themselves up with a victory against Watsonians on Saturday at Mansfield Park.
