BT Sport Scottish rugby Academy District programme and representation

The BT Academy programme features a host of Biggar's youth players.

 

Earlier this week Ross Jackson and Peter Steele took the field for Glasgow and the West U-20's against The Borders and East Lothian, recording a runaway 43-0 win.

 

This coming Sunday (31st July), sees the programme continue with games at U-18 and U-20 against Caledonia with the games being played at Netherdale, Gala RFC. Last season it was Caledonia who looked the strongest District so the boys will face a tough challenge.

 

In addition to Ross and Peter, Biggar have a total of 5 players in the U-18 squad with Andrew Jardine honoured by being named Captain. He is joined by Guy Kelly, Lohann Kotze, Rory McGinn and Andrew Nimmo.

 

This is a magnificent achievement for the boys and club is extremely proud of their selection. The boys travel with the best wishes of all at Hartree Mill while as alwsy it would be good to get a good support to Netherdale for the matches.

Pre-season training and games

Coach Gary Mercer, ably assisted by Ali Browning and Doug Fleming, continue to put Biggar's senior squad through their paces. Holidays and work always disrupts attendance but there is a good core of players who are thoroughly enjoying the challenges with a great variety of drills and practices with ball in hand and decision-making to the fore.

That said there is always room for those who haven't yet managed down.

 

As the season continues to lengthen the players will get their first opportunity to test themselves with warm up games over the coming weeks. These are as follows:

Friday 5th (Yep! NEXT Friday) v Lasswade (KO 7pm)

Sat 6th: Peebles 7's

Sat 13th v Dumfries KO tbc

Sat 20th v Penrith KO tbc

 

Real competitive rugby starts on Sat 26th when Biggar host Marr in the first round of the Scottish Cup. National League action begins the following week when the side travel to face local rivals Peebles in what is already looking to be a cracking opening league tie.
