Mini P7 at Stirling County

Mini Rugby P7
On a day when the weather was only good for rugby or staying wrapped up inside Biggar Minis headed to a windswept and wet Stirling. The minis new jackets were a real winner today so thanks to Paula for organising and the sponsors (CK Contracts Ltd) for providing them.

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.
