Colts Friendly and Under 16 Quarter Final this weekend

On Saturday 31st January, Biggar Colts will host Gala Wanderers in a friendly with a 2 pm kick off 

On Sunday it is hoped that the Under 16 Boys will finally be able to play their National Bowl Quarter Final at home against Garnock with a 2pm Kick off. However this game may have to be moved if the pitches are unplayable at home. Regular updates to follow


Fraser Brown

Fraser Brown

Biggar RFC is both very proud and absolutely delighted to congratulate Fraser Brown, who began his rugby career as a Biggar Mini, following his selection for Vern Cotters 6-Nations squad for this springs competition.

 

This marks another chapter in the Glasgow players career which has seen him selected and captain age grade squads at U-18 and U-20 level. He has had to battle back after neck and back injury threatened his career but his involvement with Glasgow led, in the summer of 2013, to his selection as a replacement for Scotland's tour to South Africa. Ironically his first cap saw him replace Scott Lawson, another of our club stalwarts and whose omission from the 6-Nations will see the Newcastle Falcon redouble his efforts to get back into the squad for this year's World Cup. No confirmation on this but it's surely unique for one club to have provided the National squad with two hookers at the same time?

 

Fraser was part of Scotlands 2014 Autumn international squad gaining time off the bench against Tonga. Today in the European Challenge Cup (Sunday 25th Jan 2015), he appeared as flanker for Glasgow - a position he is used to having played Premiership rugby with Heriots. Despite the disappointment of defeat i a cracking match Fraser's was an awesome display, particularly in defence where his tackle rate was massive!

 

Here's hoping Fraser gets into action for Scotland in the 6-Nations!! His Dad Peter was a 1st XV regular with Biggar in the 1980's/90's while Mum Nikki was in Biggar's first ever Ladies XV which played in the early 1990's. To make it a completely family affair Fraser's elder brother Duncan was also a Biggar player, playing for the 1st XV on several occasions just 10 years ago before moving to NZ.  

 

All in all a proud player, family and club!!
