Biggar Midis

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


U-15’s make sterling effort at Hamilton

 Tough loss for Under 15’s at Hamilton

The Biggar U15 team had another good encounter with South Lanarkshire rivals the Hamilton Bulls at Laigh Bent on Sunday and once again the struggle for numbers was to prove crucial to the result.  Biggar were only able to muster 13 players whilst Hamilton could boast over 20.  Hamilton very kindly donated 2 players to Biggar for each period but given the heat (25c) and early season cobwebs, playing for an hour with no substitutes was always going to be a problem.

 

As it was this was a decent game.  Both packs were big and strong with Biggar being the more mobile.  Hamilton had one or two excellent backs who happily got the ball in hand and ran from anywhere. 

 

The game was played in a good spirit and some excellent performances from the boys were on display.  Niall showed very well at number 9 with good distribution and a number of real probing runs – capping one such run off with a well taken try.  Cameron Snell with his first game at number 8 was picking and going from the scrum with great effect time and again and scored 2 tries in the process.  Direct running from a number of boys caused Hamilton all sorts of problems.

 

The final score was 37 – 32 to Hamilton with Biggar scoring 6 tries and converting 2.  Try scorers were – Cameron Snell *2, Jamie, Drew, Niall and AN Other (apologies I missed who!).

 

A disappointing start to the season for the under 15’s but there were a number of positives to take from the game.  It would be almost impossible to pick a man of the match today as all 13 showed real spirit, craft and bravery in their rugby.  Direct running, good support play and communication were all in evidence.   A team spirit is building that will pull these boys together into an excellent unit to represent Biggar RFC at under 15 level. 

 

If it wasn’t for the struggle to pull the required numbers together I suspect that the outcome here would have been different.  Keep it up boys!


Help still required

Programme Editor/Match reporter/match report collator.

The season is just around the corner and the club would very much appreciate the help of someone (or a small team) to take on the above roles.

 

A programme is produced for each 1st XV and a couple of 2nd or Colts XV matches. We've always managed to produce a 'good' programme and want to maintain that tradition. Can you help? 

 

We also need to submit match reports to the local papers and, perhaps more importantly, for the website. Can you help?

 

Finally, the match reports from the all the sections need someone to collate them together for the Press and again for the website. Can you help?

 

You could be a player or keen supporter but we do need your help.
