CARLUKE Rovers moved out of the relegation zone on goal difference with a confidence-boosting 3-0 home win over Vale of Clyde last Saturday.

The 3-0 victory for Colin Slater’s men came courtesy of two goals from Ryan Smillie and another from Dean Kindlan.

Local rivals Lanark are back in the relegation zone after their game against Renfrew was called off.

Lesmahagow’s home match against Maryhill was also a victim of the weather. However, the referee’s decision to call off the match did not go down well with ’Gow boss Robert Irving.

In Central Division 2 Forth Wanderers were defeated 2-1 by Royal Albert last Saturday at a wet Kingshill Park.

And the second time this season, Biggar Rugby Club were on the receiving end of a heavy defeat by Selkirk when the teams met last Saturday.

Like the first meeting back in September (when Selkirk won 43-23 at Hartreemill), the Borders side took a four-try bonus point in their 26-3 victory.
