Hawick Harlequins 13


A BATTLING first-half performance saw the Quins giving visitors Dunbar a real run for their money, before leaking four converted tries during the second period.

There was some good rugby on show from both sides, and it was Dunbar who were first to open their account with a converted touchdown.

Two Scott Peffers penalties enabled Quins to close the deficit to one point, only for Dunbar to get back in on the scoring act with their second converted try.

With half-time looming, the Hawick outfit got themselves back into contention with a Ricki Kiore try near the posts, and the converson by Peffers.

Quins tried hard in the second period, but it was Dunbar who did all the scoring with a further four converted tries.
