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.
