Rugby Union: Watsonians face Melrose in premier tie

The joint favourites, Watsonians, runners-up in last year's competition and 59-20 winners over Gala yesterday, have been drawn away against Boroughmuir in the only all-First Division tie of the Tennents Scottish Cup quarter- finals. Boroughmuir look to be mounting a strong challenge for the trophy after yesterday's 71-9 defeat of Stirling County in the fifth round.

The pick of the other ties is the game at Burnbrae, where West of Scotland, winners over Glasgow Southern by 15-10, will play the favourites, Melrose, who trounced Kelso 71-37. Peebles, who beat Kilmarnock 22-10, face Heriot's FP, who knocked out Berwick 37-17. Kirkcaldy reached the last eight with a 48-8 win over Edinburgh University and next face Dundee HSFP, who beat non-League Hawick Linden 31-6.

TENNENTS SCOTTISH CUP, Quarter-final draw: Peebles v Heriot's FP; West of Scotland v Melrose; Kirkcaldy v Dundee HSFP; Boroughmuir v Watsonians.
