The scrap between Edinburgh Accies and Jed-Forest for the one automatic promotion places will go to the final round of BT National Division One fixtures after both rugby clubs posted bonus-point wins.

Accies came from behind for a 24-12 success at GHA. A Jamie Sole try, converted by Richard Mill, left Accies 7-0 ahead at half-time. Two tries shortly after the restart eased the hosts into a 12-5 lead but a penalty try nudged Accies in front before scores from Max Love and Sole secured the victory.

Jed were 12-7 down to Selkirk at the interval but bounced back with three second-half tries to take all five league points from a 26-12 win and remain in joint top spot with Accies.

The Raeburn Place men have a superior points difference, meaning that a bonus-point win at Selkirk on April 21 will guarantee a step up next season.
