The Colts – supported by BARC - were on a standby week but the management team have arranged to play a rearranged Border Semi-junior League fixture at Hawick PSA. The team needs game time before the National Knockout Cup games. The boys are to be congratulated on qualifying having achieved a top four finish in the Border Semi-Junior League at the cut-off date for the National Cup following some really hard work on the training paddock, in the gym and at game time throughout the season.
