I have a pictured taken of this team which my grandfater played for.

I believe it may have been taken before they all joined up for WW1.

Any iformation on the team would be appreciated, I'm, back to Hawick the end of January to do some more research on that side of my family.

Thanks for the reply, I should have mentioned in my original post, that the ball looks more like a football rather than a Rugby ball.
However that would seem strange for Hawick at that date.

I will post a copy to the email address you provided, rthanks.
