It was another catalogue of surprises in RBS Premier 1 last Saturday with Currie and Stirling County producing the shock results of the weekend.

Currie hit form in their 2011/12 campaign and put a confident Ayr XV to bed 50 points to 13, while Stirling County managed to knock-off joint league leaders, Dundee, in an extremely tight meeting that ended 28-27. 

Currie head coach Ally Donaldson said: “We’re delighted with our first win.

“After a run of players being injured, the team is beginning to look more familiar and consistent. The depth has returned, which is restoring our confidence.

“We definitely played better this week, but we are still third from the bottom, so we must keep improving each week in order to fulfil our potential.”

The new recruits in the league once again showed their abilities to compete at the top with Gala and Grammar adding another victory to their books. Gala beat Heriot’s at home, 14-5, while Aberdeen managed a win at Mansfield Park, against Hawick, 44-31. This positions them fourth and fifth in the standings at the end of week four respectively.

Hawks were the victims this week at the Greenyards as Melrose secured their fourth consecutive win of the season and a 100% record to date. This means they lead the way in the table, four points ahead of Boroughmuir and Dundee. The final score at the Greenyards was 35-0.

Finally, Boroughmuir were the victors at Raeburn Place, in the second Edinburgh derby of the season, beating Accies 44-22.
