Duns entertained Royal High at Castle Park, the Edinburgh side's first visit to Duns for more than 20 years, and won a highly entertaining match with a last minute penalty goal after trailing 19-0 with 30 minutes gone.
Sometimes in rugby a team high in confidence meets a team low in confidence and the outcome can be devastating. This was one of those games and Berwick produced 60 minutes of high tempo flat out rugby resulting in 16 tries and 13 conversions for Berwick against a solitary penalty by the visitors.
Duns played their first match of 2019, and their first fixture for a month, when they entertained Livingston at Castle Park, and eased to a bonus point win in an entertaining game which was very evenly poised until half time.
Duns entertained Broughton at Castle Park in Tennent’s East Division 1, as the second half of the league season got underway, and recorded a bonus-point win in a fixture which was much more closely-contested than the 26-8 score might suggest.
Given that Forrester have had some good results this season, this was a potential banana skin for Berwick – but eight tries, all converted, saw the home side claim maximum points whilst Border neighbours Hawick Quins defeated Royal High.
