Biggar Colts power past Hamilton

Biggar Colts 48pts v Hamilton 7pts.

Green Conference League- Saturday  3rd October 2015

"There is no one giant step that does it. It's a lot of little steps and each game that Biggar Colts win keeps them in pole position for the league title.
Now half way through the Green Conference, Biggar are undefeated with 6 wins.
Although well tested Biggar were still comfortable winners by 48 points to  7 points against a team who arrived with only 14 men who although short ,worked tirelessly through the game .


The next half of the league will be tougher as Biggar have to travel to GHA and also their local rivals Hamilton who gave the boys a good test on Saturday at Hartree. Simply there is “There's never an easy route to the things that matter.” 
From the start Biggar put pressure on Hamilton who struggled to contain an attack wide where the ball was moved out with simple clear passes and then back in from Aaron Dobie to Andrew Jardine who went in for the 1st score.


Hamilton then gave Biggar a severe test with relentless attacks but Biggar held firm and major hits were going in on Hamilton which forced them often to make mistakes and drop ball.
Scott Thomson was at the forefront with this and his constant big hits allowed ball to be retrieved and put up the field to ease pressure in Biggars half.
Biggar when back in Hamilton's half put a series of attacks in place and after 3 phases the ball was moved to Andrew Jardine who then put a pass back into the ever present Stuart Affleck who went clear through form some 30 yards out for a try converted by Euan Bogle.

Hamilton again returned the pressure and went in for a score when their scrum half found a gap to go over.

Biggar knew they were in a game and they had to start hitting up more and this they did when Mark Ewart was on hand to go a massive powerful run form half way to score a great try. 

Hamilton were finding it hard to contain relentless attacks and it was not helped in that with both teams only allowed 7 in the scrum , Biggar had Stuart Affleck positioned in the backs and this advantage was continually taken with strong running from Stuart.
Also Hamilton were opting for short lineouts which continually were over thrown and then seized on by Douglas Hill who was able to then feed the Biggar forwards not in the lineout. 
Sometimes, little mistakes can make a big difference...” 

Half Time – Biggar Colts 22 pts to Hamilton 7 pts 

Biggar knew they were going to have to cope with the Hamilton  onslaught early in the 2nd half and this they did by turning again their defence into attack.
Henry Adams made a great break from his own 22 and linked with Marcus Dobie who then in turn returned the pass for Henry to go in for a score that really put Biggar in a strong command. Euan Bogle converted.


Hamilton did not give up and continually pressurised the Biggar forwards who at times were leaving gaps to allow attacks to proceed but were able to shut it down eventually.
Biggar battered up out wide and when 2nd phase ball was put out by Craig Allison to Euan Bogle who found a gap to slice through for a try which he converted .
William Grieve back after injury then got on the score sheet after linking well with Andrew Jardine and the last try of the day was for Andrew himself who converted his own try after some crisp handling by the backs

Full time – Biggar Colts 48 points to Hamilton 7 Points  
This was a good game of rugby with the forwards making improvements in areas of concern after the GHA game and the backs are proving to be just as effective in defence as in attack.

Half way through the league campaign and the its not the individuals who have made it possible but the whole team who have made the difference.
Euan Bogle, Marcus Dobie, Andrew Jardine , Alex Denholm, Peter Steele, Rory McGinn, Douglas Hill, Keir Hamilton, Andrew Nimmo, Craig Shearer, Scott Thomson, Kyle Anderson, Ross Jackson, Stuart Affleck, Jack Court, Mark Ewart, Craig Allison, Angus Kerr, Calum Dunlop , Henry Adams, Aaron Dobie , William Grieve, Mark Harrison, Simon Denholm, Alex Toal and Martin Hunter.
