Scottish rugby round-up
Ayr 14-42 Glasgow Hawks

Champions Glasgow Hawks shook off their cobwebs at Millbrae as they claimed a convincing triumph over Ayr.

Ricky Munday led the charge with two tries, the others coming from Wes Henry, Kenny Sinclair, Ally McLay and Ross Gillies.

Mike Adamson was also in fine form with the boot, landing the rest of the points.

Both Ayr's touchdowns came in the final 10 minutes through Steve Manning and Steve Heaton, goaled by James Noonan.

Watsonians 26-12 Currie

The home side grabbed the glory at Myreside despite being under the cosh for most of a rousing contest.

The home side's touchdowns were bagged by Ross Stewart, Ben Di Rollo and Colin Gregor, who also kicked a conversion and a penalty treble.

Mike Ker and Paul Sullivan went over for Currie, the former adding a conversion in vain.

Melrose 71-7 Gala

Melrose hammered their local rivals at The Greenyards with winger Geoff Caldwell leaving the pitch with five tries to his name.

Gala had taken an early lead with a touchdown by former Melrose man Jamie Henderson, converted by Chris Dalgleish.

But after that it was one-way traffic, with the home men keeping the scoreboard ticking over with 52 points in the second half.

Karne Kaufana, Jamie Murray, Wayne Mitchell, Scott Aitken and Mark Robertson all crossed the line for Melrose while the referee added to the tally with a penalty try for obstruction.

Scott Ruthven completed the rout by landing eight conversions, while three men were yellow-carded - Richard Higgins and Kaufana of Melrose, and Gala's David Gray.

GHA 20-36 Boroughmuir

GHA surrendered their unbeaten record as the Edinburgh visitors raced to a well-merited success at Braidholm.

Steve Hadden marked his debut by grabbing the opening score for the hosts, with the others being claimed by David Cunningham and Ramin Mathieson. The referee also added a penalty try late in the game.

James Reilly booted the remainder of the points to snuff out the home challenge and give Muir a confidence-boosting win after their loss to Biggar last weekend.

GHA's touchdowns went to ex-pros Joe Naufahu and Alan Bulloch, along with sub Johnny Beattie, while Iain Kennedy landed a penalty and conversion.

Aberdeen 11-16 Biggar

Newly-promoted Biggar continued their great start to the campaign by taking the honours at Rubislaw.

Andy Dunlop ploughed over for their only try, with stand-off Quentin Sanft again emerging as the hero by slotting the conversion and a hat-trick of penalties.

Dons, who have yet to bag a win, created a touchdown for Paul Hudson, while Keith Oddie's two penalties ensured the consolation bonus point.

Heriot's 53-15 Hawick

Heriot's underlined their credentials as title contenders with this half-century haul which leaves their Borders visitors anchored to the foot of the table.

Ally Dickinson, Craig Harrison, Marc Teague (two), Ander Monro, Rob Dewey (two) and Nic De Luca were the try stars, while Monro banged over five conversions and a penalty.

Hawick replied with tries by Barry Keown and Craig Neish, who also kicked a conversion and penalty.
