Girls come out on top against Annan

Mirage Conference results v Annan

U15's

Today the U15 Girls travelled to Annan RFC to compete in their conference game against Annan's U15 Girls. Despite Biggar being several players down due to injury and other comitments, Annan were only able to field 11 players, so we started with two subs on the bench. Biggar started strongly, scoring within the first few minutes, then continuing to score try after try, with great support play from all members of the team.

 

Half time saw the score at 5 - 46 for Biggar.

 

The second half saw our girls continue where they left off, but a few lapses of concentration crept in, and Annan managed to score another couple of tries, converting one. Annan also started to dominate many of the rucks, and started to kick from hand, collecting the ball each time further up the field of play, despite our girls having worked on loose ball recovery, at the Monday Academy session.

 

Another couple of tries from Biggar saw the game brought to a close with the score 17 - 70, although it was agreed to return the final score of 17 - 54 to the SRU.

 

Try scorers included Katie Mcpherson(4) , Alexandra Philips (2), Cerys Forrest (2), Abigail Barrett (1), Emily Wood-Kidd (c)(1), Sammy Shaw (1) Lana Bell (1) and conversions were successful from Katie (5) and Alexandra (2).

 

Girl of the Game for Biggar as decided by her team mates was Cerys.

 

Well played everyone who pulled on the red and black today.

 

 

U18 Girls –v- Annan Hornets 28th October 2018

The U18 girls travelled to Annan for this league game but unfortunately Annan were unable to field sufficient numbers and a development game was played. The opportunity to make the best of a very bright autumn day was taken and the coaches agreed to mix up the squads with backs and forwards transferring to each other’s team. This gave all the Biggar girls the chance to play against their teammates and led to lots of tries and some robust tackling from which both squads benefitted. It also enabled all the girls to enjoy the game which was played in good spirits. Biggar player of the match was awarded to Kaylee Fraser.

Hamilton U13s 3 Biggar U13s 39


What a great team performance this afternoon at Hamilton. The boys didn’t take long to get the points on the board, with Liam crossing the try line within 10 seconds of the match kicking off. And by half time the boys had raced into a 20-0 lead with further tries from Robert, Ruaraidh, Harry and Kyle. All of which were converted by Liam.


The second half performance was just as impressive with the whole squad contributing to the teams further 5 tries from Robert (2), Liam and Harry (2). With Liam only missing one conversation, which resulted in a 90% success rate for the match. (Pretty impressive!) Hamilton did manage a try of their own, which they were unable to convert.


Many thanks got to Ruaraidh and Kyle from the P7 squad for stepping in and helping us out.


And a special mention for Franklyn on his debut in a Biggar RFC shirt.


There were man of the match performances from a number of players today, so it will be a difficult decision for the coaches to pick someone in particular.



Lets hope we we can carry this performance into next weeks game against Ayr.

Well played Team!


Biggar Colts lose out to Bulls

Bulls Lead the charge at Hartree Mill

 

A tough derby loss to South Lanarkshire rivals Hamilton Bulls today for the Biggar under 18’s as they were well beaten by a fine display of attacking rugby. The first 10 minutes were a tight affair with only a Hamilton penalty to show for either side. Biggar then seemed to switch off and allow Hamilton to run at them and break the gain line on a consistent basis. This was to prove to be their downfall as the Bulls ran in 4 unanswered tries to lead 31 – 0 at half time.

 

Biggar started the second half well and really took the game to Hamilton in the early stages. It looked like they might start to claw back their lead but with only 14 on the park due to a late first half indiscretion, the Bulls managed to exploit a gap and score again much to the frustration of a large home support.

 

This seemed to galvanise the team and led to the best spell of the match for the home team with Seth Jamieson to the fore. The big number 8 scored 2 tries in quick succession. The first one following a great break from Jack Balkwill and Finn Barr. The second one from a good bit of power from the forward pack with Seth showing great strength to drive over the line.

 

This gave the home favourites some hope and a real battle was beginning to brew. Unfortunately the Bulls upped their game too and scored another 2 tries to quell any fightback hopes.

 

Seth was to have the final word for Biggar as he completed the scoring and his hat-trick in fine style driving well into the bulls defence and over for another good score.

 

Full time Biggar 21 – Hamilton 50

 

Not a great day at the office for Biggar Colts today. Some great flashes of play and real effort but some basics being missed let the Bulls dominate the game. Still some real positives to take from the game. Seth scoring three great tries deserves great credit for his strength and determination. Three new Colts were also capped today. Callum McCallum played well at 10 and will clearly help increase the options in the backs. James Walker came on in the second half and made some really good tackles and disrupted the Bulls ball well and Louis Henderson came on in the front row and did well against a very big Hamilton pack.


Biggar take another 5 pointer

Biggar 49 Preston Lodge 0

 

 

On a bright cold Saturday, Biggar 1st XV made it 9 from 9 in National Division 2, extending their lead at the top of the table.

 

 

The scoring came within the first 10 minutes of play when Andrew Peacock crossed the line in the corner following some clever play from a line out on PLS twenty two. Following shortly after Rowan Stewart started his scoring for the game with a similar try in the same corner. Matthew Stewart unfortuantley missed out on both of these conversions. (10-0). Within 20 minutes Ross Bradford made it 15-0 after recieving a pass from James Barr to go over the whitewash. With then only a kick to goal for the rest of the half, the hosts held onto a led of 18-0 going into the second half.

 

 

Matthew Stewart got his frist conversion of the game after Rowan Stewart broke through several tackles to get his second try making it 25-0. With little possession the visitors struggled to string attacks together allowing Biggar to play open and expansive rugby which allowed their lead to continually increase. The 5th try of the game, potentially the most memorable, came from a kick and chase from Ryan Moffat who then offloaded to Jamie Orr to score under the posts. At this point changes started to happen and Douglas Notman was exchanged for Lewis Stewart. Rowan Stewart completed his hatrick after a well constructed counter attack came from Robbie Lavery and Ross Bradford who allowed the 18 year old to continue his own socring record. Again changes were made as Robbie Orr, Gregor Stewart and Paul Davidson all got their run off the bench during the second half of the second half.

 

 

Rowan Stewart then made it 4 tries for the afternoon as he went under the posts after a crisp backs move from a scrum in front of the clubhouse. To conclude the scoring Matthew Stewart got his own try after Robbie Orr made a clever dummy on the blind side to allow the lead to be secured at 49-0.

 

 

It was a very conivcing and comfortable win for the hosts who continue to impress their fans. A special mention should go to Man of the Match Jamie Orr and the three sets of brothers who all played together for the first time. Jamie and Robbie Orr, twins Matthew and Lewis Stewart and brothers Gregor and Rowan Stewart. Biggar look to continue their form as the head away to GHK next Saturday.

R. Lavery, R. Bradford, M. Stewart, R. Moffat, R. Stewart, J. Barr, I. Renwick, D. Voas, C. Mulligan, F. Carossi, Z. Lyon, A. Peacock, E. Sanderson, D. Notman, J. Orr

Reps: P. Davidson, G. Stewart, L. Stewart, R. Orr

 

The 2nd XV hosted Musselburgh in their match. Of course the changes to the 1sts led to resources being stretched somewhat and so Biggar fielded a very young side with a couple of veterans included. They found the visitors with a large pack who were able to dictate play.
