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.
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.”
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.
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.
Half Time – Biggar Colts 22 pts to Hamilton 7 pts
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.
Full time – Biggar Colts 48 points to Hamilton 7 Points
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.
The Colts are not due to play their next Conference game until 31st October which is a home game against Dunfermline. 6 games played and 6 more to play as all teams play each other twice.
