Cheryl and Neville Hawkins are watching the Scotland vs Samoa game at Hawick Rugby Club as part of their Rugby World Cup tour.

The couple are from New Zealand and are supporting Scotland and the All Blacks during the tournament.

They are personal friends of Scotland player Sean Maitland, who is originally from the North Island in New Zealand.

"It's been absolutely fantastic to be part of this year's Rugby World Cup. The atmosphere has been fantastic every where we've been and the people have been so friendly.

"We're having a great time cheering on Scotland who are our favourite team after the All Blacks of course!"
