Leinster boot-boy Brian O’Meara helped himself to 21 points as rock-bottom
Borders hit a new low at Netherdale last night. The only consolation for the
Borders was a brace of touchdowns from centre Jono Stuart which had the home
side eyeing a morale-boosting win at one stage. After O’Meara’s first trio of
kicks, Stuart reduced the deficit by driving over in the corner on the stroke
of half-time following a feed from Chris Cusiter.
And hopes of a rare home win were raised on the restart when Stuart conjured-up

O’Meara kept the visitors in touch with another penalty before the Irishmen
reclaimed the lead through an Aidan Kearney try. O’Meara slotted another three
penalties to open up a 10-point gap before Campbell Feather notched a consolation
try deep in injury-time.
