Renwick focused on survival goal

GREENS full-back Neil Renwick hailed Saturday’s “huge” win over Glasgow Hawks.

But the 23-year-old is refusing to get carried away and insists there is plenty of hard work still to be done.

Renwick was on target with the boot to kick two conversions and a penalty as the Mansfield Park outfit survived a second-half onslaught to claim the victory.

He said: “It was a great effort from everyone involved. We knew Hawks away was going to be a tough task but we had two good sessions through the week leading up to the game and our preparations were good.

“In the first half we took our chances well and converted the pressure into points.

“After the break we were playing into a strong wind, but credit to the lads, we stuck in and put in a big defensive performance. Hawks spent the majority of the half camped in our 22, but only managed to cross the whitewash once.”

The win at Old Anniesland sees Hawick in second position in Premier ‘B’ and they join this week’s opponents Edinburgh Accies as the only two teams so far undefeated in the league.

And Renwick is hoping for more of the same tomorrow. He added: “It was a huge win, but we’ve still got four tough games ahead and hopefully we can keep progressing, keep winning and secure our top-flight status for next season.”

n Forward Kieran Willison is expected to be ruled out for the rest of the season after a nasty landing from a lineout saw him damage his hamstring, knee and calf. He said: “It’s likely to be a month or two so it’s doubtful I’ll play again this season.”
