On: Wednesday, 03 Nov 2021
Venue: Away

We arrived at St. Mary''s, Melrose bathed in sunshine and were greeted warmly by our hosts. After some last minute lineout practice, we took to the field for the first game of the tour. We kicked off and, despite excellent tackling in the opening minutes, we struggled to get hold of the ball. However, such was the tenacity of our defence SMM struggled to get out of their half. Finally, we got our hands on the ball long enough for Joshie G to break the gain line, on a number of occasions before crashing over under the posts. A flowing move from the lineout followed, with excellent hands from Harry.N and a lovely outside break from Billy.M, being finished in the corner. Our hosts had a purple patch at the start of the second half, and quickly scored an impressive try. This galvanised our resolve and we managed to score the next points, and hold off an impressive comeback in the dying moments of the game. Final score 24-19 to Mowden. *Please excuse typos, I''m writing this on my phone!
