P3 success at Peebles while P7 go close
Biggar P3 – Peebles Mini Rugby Tournament Sunday 19th April.
Biggar P3s were drawn in group B of the tournament along with Peebles Piranhas (white),Langholm & Gala.
The second game was against Gala who proved to be a stronger team, good defensive discipline by Biggar kept them in the game and as they learned to play to the new rules and passing out of the tackle the ties started to come. The P3 team has a strong core of players all of whom can make terrific runs, in the game against Gala the passing game started to come together with David and Ruairidh in particular linking well.
The last pool game against Peebles was another close match Gregor and Alastair showing huge determination in defence and hunting down the opposition who often found themselves forced backwards. Biggar won the last game by 2 tried and were through to the final – a play off between the winners of each pool.
The final was against Peebles Piranhas (Blue) who won a closely contested play off with Kelso, Peebles managing to score the golden try in a very exciting 5 minutes.
The final of the P3 tournament was nail biting stuff with neither team able to take control of the game. Biggar played incredibly well showing courage in defence and attack, as the other games finished quite a crowd gathered with lots of great support. The team definitely felt the pressure as Peebles answered every Biggar try but everyone kept playing their own game and a final try from Poppy sealed a Biggar victory. Special mention for Alex Lang as a P2 was an important member of the team in the final. A brilliant win for Biggar and lots of thanks to all the supporters who cheered the team on.
P7s 100 try's up
Biggar P7s passed the total of 100 competitive try's over the season in their first game at the Peebles tournament playing against Kelso. I hope all the parents can remember all those trys because I cant!. On the day the P7s were down to 11 players and with games of 10 minute half's they would need to be full of running to compete, which as a squad the certainly were. Biggar started well with direct runs from Jonathan and Rurhari and a nice mix of offloading rugby, Biggar scored first through Fraser but the game was 2 all at half time. In the second half Rurhari took a heavy knock to his nose and was out for the rest of the game. The team played on mixing direct runs and passing wide well and generally were on top for most of the game and Biggar ended up winning 5 v 3 with trys from Greig (2), Fraser 1, Andrew, Archie
Well down to Andrew, Archie, Callum, Christopher, Fraser, Grieg, Jack, Jonathan, Katie, Murray, Rurhari for a really well played two games mixing direct and passing rugby up well, full commitment from everyone roll on the next few fixtures.

Mini P7 at Stirling County
Mini Rugby P7
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.
