SRU Refereeing Courses
Regardless on your view of referee's, and we all have one, one thing we all we have to agree, is that without them we wouldn't have any rugby to watch, its the easiest thing in the world to criticise them, but when the critics are asked or offered the chance to step onto the pitch and take over its very rare that they do.
We have a good group of referee's at Biggar who cover Mini, midi and where required Senior games although at the younger age the correct term is now to be called a Game Coach and its a good way to try and teach and encourage youngsters to learn more about the game.
As always some additional volunteers would be ideal and therefore if you are interested in helping out the SRU are running some courses for new refs and also have information on their website.
so, if you fancy getting on the other side of the whistle this is the SRU Sales pitch?
Scottish Rugby is running a number of level one referee courses throughout August and into September in Glasgow, Edinburgh and the Borders. The two courses taking place in August will be in Coatbridge and Peebles, with a further course in September being held at BT Murrayfield.

Biggar RFC news 20th July 2014
With holidays and work-related absence taken into account training numbers at Biggar’s pre-season are still encouraging as coach Gavin Blackburn pushes his squad to ensure maximum readiness for the season start.
A boost for the junior development of the club comes in the shape of the appointment of an SRU Modern Apprentice to work under the direction of Development Officer Calum Taylor. William Grieve, who hails from Symington, has been playing rugby from Minis upwards and is currently in the Colts XV is the MA and his role will be to work alongside Calum in supporting all aspects of the Primary, High school and Mini and Youth programme. This will be a big boost for the younger players and their coaches and William is himself desperate to get the job started when the schools resume in August.
It’s all go off the field as well with memberships now due. All current members have been sent the club’s annual Membership brochure which is a fantastic document detailing all the aspects involved within the club and what it offers to its membership in terms of playing, coaching and socialising. Anyone yet to receive a copy and any prospective new member wishing a copy should contact GY on 07774678617. This also applies to any individual or business which might wish to advertise within the club programme or sponsor any part of the club’s operations/matches etc.
Summer time tidy-up projects are well underway although there is still a need for man hours to help freshen/tidy up/repair the club grounds – painting, strimming, grass cutting, weeding, fencing….the list goes on so if you have some free time and would like to help then please get in touch with Peter McDonald/Al Stewart/Nigel Pacey or GY who will point you in the correct direction.
With regard to the future development of the club environs, plans are currently being processed which outline the re-development of the ‘third’ pitch with the target being to create four full-size pitches with floodlights which in itself a massive step for the club but one which will ensure better training and playing facilities. These proposals have been presented at the end-of-season presentation evenings and at events over the summer (Biggar Show etc) and have all been well received. There is a good deal of work to be undertaken before the plans can be submitted, including the raising of funds, but this is such a great opportunity for the club that it is one which must be given high priority.
The Club was prominent at Biggar Show on Saturday with the stand – despite the dreich weather - attracting a number of visitors. It was great to see so many of the youngsters at the Show all attired in the club strip. Many thanks to all those who gave up of their time to assist with car-parking and manning the stand.
