Jed beat Howe of Fife
Jed finished their league campaign with a hard fought 33 - 24 win over Howe of Fife at a very wet Riverside last night. Jed led 19 - 17 at half time with tries from Snyman, Marshall & Ritchie, cons, 2 Mein. We stretched to a 33 - 17 lead with 2 tries from Jamie Hynd but a late Howe try made the final score 33 - 24.
The win ensured that Jed finish the league in 4th place, 14th best in Scotland and also gives us a second win in years in the Borders rugby ranking team of the year.
This game was to be the last of one of borders rugby and Jed's longest servants John Szkudro. John eventually retires at 40 years old. Hanno Synman is also on his way. Hanno flies back to South Africa after his short but valuable stay at Jed. Everone at Jed thanks both of them and wishes them good fortune in the future.
