6 Wins Out Of 6

Selkirk Youth Rugby Club are currently dominating the Scottish Borders Semi Junior 7s and to date have won all the tournaments to date making it 6 wins out of 6.

Two of the wins were last Autumn at Langholm Colts and Melrose Wasps 7s.

In the 2010 Spring circuit so far the Selkirk team have won Peebles Colts 7s by defeating Haddington Colts in the final, next competition was at Kelso Harlequins where Haddington Colts were again the victims. The circuit then moved on to Hawick PSA where the Youth Club’s opponents were Boroughmuir Colts who were convincingly beaten by 43 points to 5. Last Saturday it was the turn of Gala Wanderers 7s at Netherdale and this time it was Peebles Colts who were up against the impressive Youth Club squad and they ended up at the end of a  65 points to Nil defeat.

There are only 2 tournaments left at Selkirk Youth Club this week and then at Jed Thistle on the 1st May but the Youth Club have already won the Semi Junior 7s Trophy.

This has been a great season for the Youth Club squad who have already won the Borders Semi Junior League being undefeated after 21 games scoring more than 1000 points and conceding less than100, no mean feat in a competitive league.

The only defeat suffered so far was at Merchiston Castle 7s where the squad got to the final only to be defeated by a well drilled Edinburgh Academy 7.
