Heriots showed some of the form which they took to the Hawick Sevens in April, as they disposed of the green machine by 19 points to 14. Hawick took an early lead through Cammy Murray, but Heriots hit back with a tries from Charlie Keenan, Gordon Ross and Hugh Gilmour.
A late try by Neil Stenhouse was only the consolation for Hawick, as the city side moved into the quarter finals.
