Biggar Minis P4 - P6 at Murrayfield

Our P4, P5 and P6 teams took part in Edinburgh Rugby vs London Welsh match day events on Sunday 7th December.  P4 and P5 squads did a wonderful job carrying out guard of honour duties and our P6 team won in a match against Lasswade, played at half time on the main pitch at Murrayfield.  A big thank you to all the players, coaches and parents who braved a very cold day to take part in the events and a massive thank you to Edinburgh Rugby for lettting us take part in this experience.

Mini P7 at Stirling County

Mini Rugby P7
On a day when the weather was only good for rugby or staying wrapped up inside Biggar Minis headed to a windswept and wet Stirling. The minis new jackets were a real winner today so thanks to Paula for organising and the sponsors (CK Contracts Ltd) for providing them.

Sometimes when a team loses three games, each of them by 2 – 1, it’s a frustrating or disappointing day, but not today. Today was all about determination, great individual performances and team work; today was about putting into practice the hard work on tackling and rucking that has been done over the last 3 weeks. Today we saw the squad play proper linked up rugby with good support

going into tackles and rucks and nice offloading and passing in tricky conditions. Each of the matches went down to the wire and any game could have been won. Playing without any subs gave the team lots of playing time and experience which is all good for the future.  A special thanks must go to Archie, Katie, Jack and Myles who all helped out playing with the P6s for a game or two. Feedback from the P6 coaches was that all did very well and helped out greatly - thanks.

The first game against Stirling County 1 was an even affair with Stirling doing most of the pressing but not finding any gaps until eventually they found space out wide. Biggar replied but Stirling got one more in the last minute.

The second game started with a well worked restart going straight to Ross who skipped through the Stirling County 2 defence. They came back eventually getting a try just after half time and then another at the final whistle.

In the final game GHK started brighter with some impressive passing wide especially given the conditions. With the score 1 - 0 to GHK, Biggar came out in the second half ever more determined and through hard team work and pressing got Archie a little space to go over for a deserved try. GHK came back with fresh subs and moved the ball well to get a winning try near the end.


P7’s at Linlithgow find it tough going

P7 Minis at Linlithgow

The Biggar P7s visited an autumnal Linlithgow for their annual festival which is always a competitive and enjoyable day.

First up were Watsonians, Biggar looked fresh and confident from the off consistently winning the ruck and quick ball with drives led by

Ruadhri and Fraser. Biggar played on the front foot and the first try came quickly from a break down the left with Ruadhri passing to Murray to score. More tries came from Callum, Ruadhri, Jonathan and Fraser with a final score of Biggar 5 - Watsonians 1

In the second game it was clear very early on that Linlithgow had some big powerful players and they knew how to ruck well. Unfortunately by this time  Biggar had lost Ruadhri to a shoulder knock and although others tried hard Biggar couldn't control the breakdown and were pushed off the ball  too often  which gave Linlithgow attacking options which they used to get three trys, Biggars only try coming from Ross. Final score Linlithgow 3 - Biggar 1

In the 3rd game Biggar came up against last weeks’ rivals Gala, The game panned through very similar to last week, it was a close game but Gala were a bit quicker at the ruck and were confident to pass the ball wide quickly running in 2 trys to no reply from Biggar. 

Last up were Falkirk who Biggar had beaten 6 - 1 at the start of the season, this time it was different. Falkirk used their big player to consistently make breaks which Biggar only just managed to contain, eventually though Falkirk scored, for most of the last 5 minutes Biggar were camped on the Falkirk try line but just couldn't break the line. Final Score Falkirk 1 - Biggar 0

The P7s showed lots of commitment and effort with many phases of good play but couldn't quite link all the parts together on the day. There is however a real team spirit and something special developing in the squad.
