Hawick PSA fall short at Berwick

Despite travelling with only 15 players due to injury and unavailability, PSA started well and were a try up after only two minutes through Kieran Murphy who beat the home defence for the touchdown.

Berwick then took control, and PSA were giving away silly penalties and their injuries were mounting up. They spent most of the match with 14 fit players, but were down to 13 midway through the first half for about 20 minutes.

The Burnfoot boys had no answer to the hard-running Berwick backs although some of the PSA tackling wasn’t up to scratch.

Although this was a poor performance by PSA, not helped by injuries, there were positives. Keenan Gobby continued to shine in the pack, Neil Renwick never stopped tackling and John Frew always looked dangerous with ball in hand, but his opportunities were limited.

The players and coaches know that PSA can perform better than this.
