Matthew makes Scotland debut: Lewis and Robbie play Australia schools

Congratulations Matthew!

 

Matthew Stewart became the latest player to pull on a Scotland shirt as he came off the bench for Scotland U19's v Wales on Sunday.

 

Unfortunately the result didn't go Scotland's way as Wales ran out victors but that shouldn't detract from the experience gained by Matthew. A large Biggar support was on hand to witness his debut match with, of course, a very proud Stewart Family on hand as always.

  

 

Hot on Matthew's heels are twin brother Lewis and Robbie Orr who both played for a Scotland Under 19 select XV on Wednesday at The Oriam and against Australia schools U18's.

Having had just two training sessions the Scots lads found the going really tough as the Australian lads took control early on and dominated proceedings. The final 70 point total was a disappointment but the two Biggar boys played well and should be very proud of their play.

 

Matthew is in the squad which will play the same Australian opposition on Sunday. This match is also at The Oriam with a


Grand opening of new shelter

Grand opening of BRFC Shelter

After very kind donations by two of our keen supporters the club was delighted to open the new supporters shelter on Saturday.

 

Officiating at the opening was vice President James Orr who said a few words before the opening ceremony performed by Willie Chapman and John Turnbull who made the initial suggestion about the shelter and who made the donations.

Many thanks to Robison Engineering for the steelwork and to John Hislop of Louden Hill Quarry who provided the infill. Thanks to to James Orr, John Bogle, Andrew Howatson, Eric Shearer and a squad of senior players who assisted in the erection of the shelter. This is another fine example of how the community pulled together in support of Biggar RFC.

 

A healthy crowd made use of the shelter on a day when the weather happily didn't quite match up to its forecast.

To crown the day Biggar 1sts maintained their winning run by defeating Howe of Fife 57-3.
