S2 Update of Tour to Southport

22 Biggar RFC S2 boys returned on Monday from their tour to the land of giants! Over 2 days and 7 games of rugby they proudly represented Biggar and Scottish rugby at the Southport festival against clubs from across England and Ireland. Every one of the boys did the club proud during and after matches, making new friends on the way.

It's fair to say the festival was a stern test of the boys skill and determination when coming up against clubs with over 40 boys at this age group and truly some of the opposition was huge ( find the comparison photo!). Biggar boys out-scrummed every team, competed really well in the rucks and tackled their hearts and bodies out.


Ahead in both the first 2 games they lost narrowly to Liverpool St Helens and Wicklow before a stiff test from a large Sheffield White team. In the final game on day one the boys came through to beat hosts Southport. On Day 2 the boys started slowly against West Hartlepool, a game they could have won, The boys rallied to compete against Nuneaton and eventual Festival winners Sheffield Blue. Some good hard running rugby provided a total of 10 trys scored by Sam Taylor, Jonathan Smith, Aaron Millar and Murray Lean.

The team of parents and coaches have worked really hard to bring this off and thanks go to all of them for the work put in. The boys have had a great experience and this will put them in fantastic shape for U15 rugby next season.

There are some cracking pictures on the Biggar RFC Facebook page.
