Given the number of players involved, the proposal was thought unworkable until Sanderson and Haig combined to suggest a Seven-a-side version. The Melrose Committee agreed unanimously to hold a Sevens tournament on April 28 1883, which Melrose won ahead of Gala, Selkirk, St.Cuthbert's Hawick, Earlstone, Gala Forest and St.Ronan's Innerieithen, Haig scoring the winning 'golden try' in sudden death extra time.
