October Squad Camps

This year we’re trying something a bit different with regards to the holiday camps! In an attempt to make them more specific, beneficial and enjoyable for the youngsters we are looking to run ‘squad based camps’ where each youngster will attend a holiday camp with those of his/her own age. Please see below the dates/time of the October squad camps:

 

Session 1 will run from 10am until 12pm and session 2 will run from 1pm until 3pm. See the post below for details of times etc.

 

Please spread the word to any interested parties!!!

U-15’s run Gala close

Gala RT  22    Biggar   17
Biggar really should have secured 4 points in this match, however indiscipline, loss of focus and variable commitment contributed to this disappointing defeat. Couple this up with the fact that some marginal judgement calls from the local official didn't go Biggars way, and what we have is a group of frustrated lads and equally disgruntled travelling support.
With no real breakthrough for 15 minutes it was looking like it could be a long day.

Gala were strong at the breakdown which at times Biggar struggled to deal with and more frustrating by virtue of the fact that this was regularly happening when Biggar carried the ball into contact.

The Hartreemill boys recovered well and drew first blood with a simple move that saw the ball passed through the backs out to Niall Ball, who touched down in the corner. Matthew Stewart's conversion attempt from a wide angle just short.

Some good defence thwarted the Gala attack but the hosts pulled one back with a similar move.
There was no real flow to the game and things were somewhat scrappy but 5-5 at half time probably did Gala more justice because Biggar certainly had the lions’ share of the possession.
Biggar started the second half very well and took the game to Gala. Quick hands, vision and support led to Guy Kelly touching down from close range with three bodies hanging off the strong prop. The referee was on the wrong side and adjudged the ball 'Held-up', no try. No way! The TMO would have given it....if there was one!
Momentum was on Biggar's side and they rallied to make sure of 7 points two minutes later with another strong run by Guy Kelly scoring between the posts and a successful conversion.
Gala slipped a couple of tackles and evened out the try count but Biggar remained in front. 
Another try for Biggar through Stuart Forrest opened the gap, much to the delight of the vocal support.

At this point things went downhill and with the official taking exception to Biggars approach to the game, claiming poor discipline at the breakdown, and following lengthy discussion about the consequences, the afore mentioned focus dwindled.

Gala then linked well to break through with Biggar unable to put their bodies between ball and ground to preserve their lead. 17-17, two minutes left to play and the draw looked likely.

Biggar pressed into the Gala half and were awarded a penalty and, for whatever reason, this decision was over-turned, giving the home side an advantage.

Gala pushed forward and slipped through only to be halted on the line by a fine tackle by Lewis Stewart. Stress levels were high and perhaps this is what led to a loose pass that Gala pounced on right on the Biggar try line.

To say the boys were 'Gutted' was an understatement. It was Gala's alertness in broken play and Biggar's failure to see clear opportunities that contributed to this defeat.
However, Sam Wallis should take encouragement from a solid performance at Scrum-half with Robbie Orr and Jamie Bell following suit at Centre and Wing.

 

This U15 side are not far off the mark and deserved so much more from the game. They must also understand that high levels of commitment should be maintained throughout the 60 minutes. Crucially, decisions went against Biggar and disruptions didn't help at all, but such are the challenges that are set out before us.

Tries (3): Niall Ball, Guy Kelly, Stuart Forrest
Conv (1): Matthew Stewart
