MELROSE have been drawn to play Gala in the first round of the Berwick Sevens, while the host club will take on Murrayfield Wanderers.
Among the 16 teams taking part in this year’s tournament, which takes place on Sunday April 22, are Morpeth, Alnwick, Watsonians, Edinburgh Accies, Edinburgh University and Musselburgh, along with the usual Borders contingent.
The afternoon kicks off with an intruiging tie between Kelso and Watsonians, before Gala and Melrose lock horns in the second tie. Defending champions Jed-Forest, who beat Selkirk in last year’s final, take on Morpeth in the last of eight first-round tie.
Berwick Sevens is round four of the 2012 kings of the Sevens circuit, which begins with the Gala Sevens on April 7.
