Over 35’s v Peebles

Peebles Over 35’s 17 Biggar Over-35’s 5
Biggar Over-35’s took to the field against their Peebles counterparts in what is now an established fixture in the season. Both sides were at full ‘strength’ if that is an accurate term to use for guys who for the most part last pulled on their boots in anger in the same fixture 12 months ago!

In pretty dreich conditions at The Gytes as rain and wind threatened to slow the game down (mercifully), Peebles came back after Biggar opened the scoring through Dr David Carvel, he a first choice within the Biggar ranks not only for his pace but for his life-saving skills thought these were not required in this match!

A couple of tries gave Peebles a 12-5 lead going into the second half and while the game was essentially pretty even throughout they added a third score to seal the match.

The players retired to the Eastgate clubrooms where they enjoyed an excellent meal and some great craic! Many thanks to Peebles RFC and to Jim Currie, in particular, for organising the day and for being great hosts and to Biggar’s GY who drilled the Biggar squad. He was one of four of Biggar’s first ever XV to feature in the match – the others being Ian Warnock, Rab Ramsay and Al Stewart.

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.
