Selkirk 5

Jed-Forest 14

JED-FOREST are proving to be Selkirk's bogey team yet again this season.

While the Philiphaugh team enjoyed plenty possession and territory against their Border rivals, they were continually thwarted.

Pouring rain, strong winds and muddy underfoot conditions made it difficult for both teams.

But it was the visitors in blue who mastered the elements best to run in two tries.

Robbie Yourston was first to slice through a gap to touch down.

Gary Munro made it 7-0 with the conversion.

While Selkirk looked dangerous enough with Darren Clapperton and Fraser Anderson both making good runs, it was Jed who were to extend their advantage.

Monty Mitchell scrambled over from close range to extend the advantage.

And yet again Munro slotted the conversion.

Normally a two-score lead wouldn't have a game done and dusted but with worsening weather it would prove too much for the home team to peg back.

Selkirk, to their credit, kept pushing for a way back and they were rewarded with an Aaron McColm try.
