On Saturday there were a few different reactions as a result of the tries scored by the 1st XV
Sinky opened the scoring and seemed rather pleased with himself, although everyone else was pleased, they were slightly further down the pitch when he scored
When Euan scored the 3rd try, Dan seemd very pleased and this is one of 3 photos with him celebrating with his arms stretching well beyond the limits of the photographers camera
Before Donald had scored the 4th try, David Patterson had time to join in with the crowd and applaud, 15m before the try line!!!!!
Finally Stevie Campbell seems to look a bit sheepish as Aird gives him a celebratory hug after scoring the 5th and final try of the day
Finally well done to all the club's teams for playing some great entertaining rugby, all our teams who played this weekend won, read the respective reports to see how well they all got on

THE BIGGAR PICTURE - September Edition
… pation. Longer than expected, I know.
A September issue starting off the rugby year isn’t so bad..?
The mini section dove straight into the deep end with their very own tournament being held at the start of the season. All went well, and it was a good day to be had for all. A big thanks goes out to Laura Watson for having the patience to organise the whole event and making it run nice and smoothly. ONE CLUB ONE FAMILY.
With the season settling in, the midi’s and colt’s drop – kicked off their green conference battle, which includes playing sides such as Dunfermline, GHA, Dumfries, Falkirk, Hamilton and Whitecraigs. It’s been a hard start for U16’s due to playing numbers… so if you’re a 15 year old boy reading this for some reason or other, you clearly have nothing else to do. Get yourself down to Hartree Mill on Wednesday nights at 7pm and live life to the max – come and join the fam. The colts have had a pretty decent start, with wins all round apart from a draw with Hamilton… awkies. One way to improve would be to actually watch your games when Sarah doesn’t lose the footage and I actually upload them lol soz.
On a plus note, 8 of the colts are part of the U18 Glasgow Academy. This includes training sessions every week and games against the other regions. The boys included are Guy Kelly, Rory McGinn, Luhann Kotze, Matthew and Lewis Stewart, Andrew Jardine and Andrew Nimmo (who defs bribed his way in with a few cows). There are also 3 boys in the Glasgow U18’s development squad – Stuart Forrest, Rowan Stewart and Jordan Gray. This is a pathway to Scotland and definitely shows that Biggar Rugby club are doing something right.
Going back to conferences, U15 and U18 Girls played their first President’s Conference game against Murrayfield Wanderers. The Presidents conference is making its debut this year with 6 teams from across Scotland taking part. Both teams won with U15’s winning very convincingly and U18’s winning but realising they should’ve done pre season. It was injuries galore with concussion going round like the plague, but luckily Abbie Baillie will be back playing soon after suffering with concussion since March. However we are playing rather well and you’re putting Sarah out of a position so we don’t need you anymore. Let the games go on the way they started.
So there you go, another monthly update for you. Hope you enjoyed.
Rhiannon (and Sarah)
