Weather affecting this weeknds fixtures AGAIN!!

Despite most of our teams not getting matches and an awful lot of work to try and arrange the U16's match the good news is that the U15 girls team managed a healthy win over Ayr 56-12 to progress to the semi final of the Brewin Dolphin Cup

Congratulations to the team and their coaches

U-15 Boys also had a game at Kilmarnok

 

Johnny Lawrie

Our thoughts are all with Johnny, his wife Brenda and family as Johhny is currently being very well looked after in the Stroke Unit at Wishaw General, he is reported to be recovering, his voice has returned along with his sense of humour but is still quite poorly, he needs more time to recuperate before being released. The family are grateful for all the good wishes and get well messages they have received and once we know more we will post an update on the website as we know a lot of people are keen to track his progress.

 


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!!
