Colts in another toughie against Boroughmuir

The Colts were in action at Hartree Mill but they lost out to an in form Boroughmuir XV by 76-0

Biggar beaten by Boroughmuir.

A tough shift for the rams who welcomed the current under 18 Conference leaders to Hartree Mill on Saturday. A final score of Biggar 0 – Muir 76 shows it was a one-sided affair and sometimes when the game goes against you you just have to try and pick out the positives. This was, most definitely, one of those days.

 

It’s all too easy for heads to go down and feel that you don’t belong in these games. My view from the stand is that this could not be further from the truth. There is no doubt that ‘Muir are a good side but Biggar have a real core of great players. Determination in spades, courage by the bucket-load and decent amounts of skill too. Every single young man in red and black showed these attributes in varying amounts on Saturday and every single one of you needs to look inside yourselves and see where you can give more. Look at your team mates and see what they are doing. Look for the positives not just the negatives.

 

Hayden Muir is a great example – he’s played 5 positions in 4 games so far this season. In every game he has stepped up and shone. Saturday was no exception. He stepped in at 9 having only had a couple of training sessions there and did himself proud. Great spirit and dedication.

 

Cameron Snell stepped up on Saturday and into the no 10 Shirt to form a brand new partnership with Hayden. It was rocky at times but given the Half Back pairing had only had about 3 or 4 hours of practice it was a great first effort.

 

Finlay Stewart is another example of courage and determination. Playing with an injury but stepping up time and again to play though it and still making tackles and runs. It would be easier to walk off the pitch and say I’m not doing it than it is to carry on.

 

Harry Low positive throughout the game, making some great tackles and big runs and still chasing down the ‘Muir attack in the 70th minute making a great tap tackle to try and stop a try.

 

Will Kelly constantly demanding the ball in the tight areas of the pitch, taking collisions again and again and sometimes not making the yardage that the contact deserved. This didn’t stop him putting himself in the firing line and taking more contact.

 

There were positives all over the pitch. These need to be the area of focus and development going forwards. Everyone makes a mistake it’s the reaction to a mistake that is important. Focus on the effort that the person made to get into that position in the first place and more positive outcomes will be the result.

 

Keep working hard. It will come!!
