Biggar RFC Midi section caters for those of high school age. We currently have teams in S1, S2, Under 15 and Under 16 age categories, as well as an Under 16 girls team. The gradual incorporation of full rugby union rules over the different age grades makes Midi rugby the perfect stepping stone for progression onto under 18s rugby and then to the senior game. All midi rugby teams train on a Wednesday night at the club at 6.45pm. If you would like to know more please contact Aird Jardine on 07917731494

Biggar Youth section report
The Midi section were in action on Sunday at S1/2 and U-16 level as they played Portobello and Dalziel respectively.
Biggar S1/2 mix
After a desperately frustrating season, in particularly since Christmas and which has seen the boys play just one game, Biggar took a mixed S1/2 squad of varying experience to play a well drilled S2 Portobello team.
Very much treating this as a development game, the Biggar team was changed 6 times during the match to ensure sufficient game time for all. It was a finely balanced affair with the smallest of margins in handling skills making a huge impact on the eventual score line. Biggars forwards should be pleased with their effort and the backs, with further drilling as a mixed squad will make huge improvements. The final score was Portobello 9 Biggar 1.
Biggars try was provided by Declan Bolton whose vision throughout the match was a credit to him. Jamie Bell played number 10 throughout the match and his discipline, leadership and work rate earned him man of the match. A final word of praise to all who played today for their excellent behaviour on the pitch, effort and desire. The score not reflecting these crucial elements that will stand them in good stead as skill levels improve.
Biggar U-16's v Dalziel and u-15's disappointment
A pleasing result for Biggar saw them run out winners against what was a physically big visiting side.
Despite managing to secure a fixture against Currie the U-15's had to postpone their match after a number of injuries and unavailablitlies reduced an already small squad to less than the bare minimum.
