Scottish Rugby Union Volunteers

 

All you have to do is get there and give a bit of your time.

 

We are currently looking for volunteers to assist with our match day ‘Blue Crew’ Team. There are many exciting events throughout the 2017/18 season, including Scotland’s home Six Nations fixtures, Guinness Pro14 and European fixtures. As part of our Blue Crew team, you can play a valued and important role, as well as being part of the match day experience in both Edinburgh, Glasgow and throughout Scotland. Please email us for more information.

 

As a ‘Blue Crew’ Assistant you must be:
•16 years+
•Available to attend match day events up to 4 hours before kick-off
•Have a friendly, enthusiastic and approachable attitude

 

In return, Scottish Rugby will give you the opportunity to be part of the event, and to spectate and cheer the action on the pitch! We have lots of events throughout the season so even if you’re not sure of your availability at this time, there are plenty of chances to get involved! Scottish Rugby values the help and support we receive from our volunteering team.

 


I like being part of Blue Crew to contributing to the best match day experience possible, interact with spectators, being part of an enthusiastic team of volunteers and it’s a great opportunity to meet new people! – Current Volunteer, Bert


Over 35’s defeated by Peebles

On Saturday it was the turn of the elder statesmen who took on Peebles in the annual Over 35’s joust.

 

Hitherto neither side had managed an away win but this run was ended when the visitors ended handsome winners by 29-7.

 

The Peebles squad was a little younger than their hosts and they were certainly much better drilled as befits a team which has had an outing already this season. Able to win ball at will at the lineout stand off Keith Nisbet then sent the Biggar side scuttling back in defence with a variety of kicks.

 

Biggar managed a consolation score with what turned out to be the last movement of the game, this from Nic Humphries which helped save the blushes a little. Although he did miss the relatively easy conversion…...

 

There was a good atmosphere throughout with plaudits to teenage referee Cameron Forrest who, in what is a very challenging role given the combatants - controlled things well.

 

The Peebles points were scored by Neil Cruikshanks, Mark Smith (2), Richard Johnson and Keith Nisbet (1 try and 2 conversions).

Biggar RFC Third XV

Biggar would love to return to the days when a 3rd XV made regular appearances throughout the season. Recent seasons however have seen the 3rds or sometimes an Over-35's side limited to just a handful of occasions. Hopes are high however that we might manage something better this season.
