Edinburgh selection success

Good luck to Kaylee Fraser, Katie McPherson and Emma Orr!

There was great excitement down at Hartree Mill when 3 of the U15 girls who have been training with the Edinburgh Academy were selected to play for the East v West match scheduled for Monday 23rd April (venue tbc).

 

The club is aligned with Glasgow North but as the Glasgow Academy sessions were all scheduled for Wednesday evenings - when the Biggar girls train - their absence would have decimated the squad sessions and so a request was made (and accepted) that the girls would instead travel and train in Edinburgh.

 

That 3 have been selected after just a short period of time indicates the quality of the girls play.

 

It will make for a busy weekend however as the girls are part of Biggar's U15 squad who are to travel on Sunday to play Highland RFC (inverness) in Shield Cup semi final duty.


U18’s are Murrayfield bound!

U18 Girls-v-Hillhead Jordanhill - National Cup Semi Final

Biggar U18 Girls are Murrayfield bound after a strong gritty performance at Glasgow Hillhead last Sunday.

 

This game was a re-run of the semi-final last season that Biggar narrowly lost. This time the game took place at Hughenden on a bright sunny day on a pitch that was fairly soft underfoot. Both clubs were able to field good numbers.

 

The match started with some early Biggar pressure which resulted in a try within the first 5 minutes. This pressure was maintained through good ball retention and link play and a further try was scored to take the score to 12-0. Hills, however, had found their feet and gained more possession as the game progressed. A robust tackle by the Biggar Number 10 resulted in a yellow card mid-way through the first half and coupled with several injuries meant a hurried re-shuffling of the Biggar back line. Despite some very good defence work from the Biggar girls, Hills were able to score a try of their own in this period. 12-5. With the team back to full numbers the Biggar girls kept a strong defence and the score remained at 12-5 at half time.

 

Biggar started the second half strongly and scored a further two tries within 5 minutes of the re-start one of which was a strong solo effort from Rachel Philips. Score 24-5. Hills raised their game again and despite some immense tackling from the Biggar girls they secured a further try taking the score to 24-10. Hills continued to dominate the possession and apply pressure but Biggar were resolute in their defence much of which was in the 5 metre zone. The game was being played with great intensity by both clubs and it was Biggar that managed two further scores in the last five minutes to secure the tie. Final score 36-10.

 

The Biggar girls performed very well as a team with great rucking and link play but the defensive work by all without doubt being the key factor in this win.

 

The coaches now have a month to prepare before the final at Murrayfield on the 6th May 2018 (Opposition yet to be confirmed) so it is hoped that the players who picked up injuries will make a good recovery in this period.

Many thanks to Richard Robinson for filming the match, Dave Simpson for providing much needed first aid support and the Euan for supporting the kicking and running touch. Thanks also to all those who made the journey through to Glasgow to support the girls – what a difference the support from Biggar makes!
