Ayr Rugby Football Club

Ayr 1st and 2nd XVs were beaten by two dominant Melrose sides at Millbrae on Saturday,

Grant Anderson scored for Ayr 1ts XV and they were also awarded a penalty try, but it wasn't enough against the ruthless visitors from the Borders, who won 34-17. Tommy Spinks was Ayr's man of the match. Read more in the match report.

The 2nd XV battled against Melrose Storm in a high-scoring match, with Johnny McCorkindale (a brace), Cameron Reece, James Armstrong and Cameron Taylor getting the tries, and Armstrong adding the conversions. Storm won 45-34. Ben Paterson was the man of the match.

Millbrae RFC were away to Strathaven in BT West 2 (score to follow), with Ayr Ladies also travelling this weekend. They play RHC Cougars in Edinburgh on Sunday in the BT Premier League.

The Ayr-Wellington youth teams are busy, as always, with the boys playing Hamilton (away) and Balfron-Strathendrick (home), the girls at home to Stirling County on Sunday.
