Biggar Youth frustrate West

U16’s v West

A great 38 -0 win for the U16 boys against West of Scotland today at Hartree Mill. After a tight first 15 minutes the Biggar boys built on their excellent defence to wear down West in a really structured multi-phase game in attack and scored a number of hard worked tries. A super turnaround from the close fought match earlier in the season to run out convincing winners. One for the coaches to savour from the boys, but still lots of areas to work on and improve.


One more conference match left against Highland next week. So lots of hard work and focus in training this week and let's aim to turn that result around too ! Well done young Rams

 

U15’s

The U15s returned to winning ways with an entertaining 38 - 7 win against West today. After last weeks narrow, last minute loss to Ayr it was important to deliver a similarly physical performance which the boys did in spades. Missing numerous players this was a chance to try a few new combinations and for others to step up.

 

Its fair to say everyone of the team stepped up and delivered 110%. The support running regaining the levels seen earlier in the season. Well done boys.

 

U14's: West of Scotland 4 points v Biggar 15 points.

The Under 14 boys returned from West after giving their best performance to date winning by 4 tries to 1. What is remarkable is that only 2 months ago they were well beaten by West at Biggar but such has been the improvement in these boys that dominated West all through the game on Sunday.

 

It was rewarding for the team to receive such positive feedback form the West coaches who could not believe the improvement in the Biggar boys but also how they are well structured and motivated to work for each other.

 

Remember it was only August when we wondered if we would have a team as there was only 9 boys and now there is 20.

We have come together which is the beginning

We have keep together which is the progress and

We now work together which is success.

Right from the start the boys stuck to their game plan to subdue the West forwards who were bigger and stronger. Biggar's pack held them and this then allowed Calum McClemon to gain yardage and when ball was set the backs caused damage and this they did especially wide out with Ben McBride.

However, for many periods of play Biggar had to defend Biggars defence was their attack and they showed all-round ability throughout the team to cause West issues everywhere.
Although this was a great team effort, notable performances came from:

In the backs, Ben McBride scoring 3 tries, two weeks in a row and Morris McDiarmid who was outstanding in both defence and attack. With the forwards Calum Mclemon continues to inspire the boys but his running lines tend to puzzle his own team mates when trying to follow him. Rory Hill and Tom Roper put in awesome performances in tackling which really stopped West getting any momentum up in the game.

Scorers

Ben McBride - 3 tries

Calum McLemon - 1 try

Finlay Crozier converted 3 of the 4 conversions.
