Presentation Evenings 2016/17

The past weekends have featured the various Presentation Evenings.

A highlight of these evenings are the replies on behalf of the boys and Tom Roper, Finlay Crozier, Andrew Wight did not disappoint – well done boys!

Many thanks to the coaching teams of Doug Roper and Doug Low (S1) and Kenny Lean, Mick Lister, Neil Laing, Geoff Smith (S2) and the catering team of Carolyn, Jan and the girls, to GY for the bar and to Paula Yardley for her work as Youth Convenor.

 

Congratulations to S2 players Jonnie Smith, Calum Smith and Sam Taylor who have all been in attendance at Broadwood as part of the Glasgow U16 trials. The trio were in action on Sunday when they played Caledonia at Braidwood. Two games were played, Glasgow winning both with many positive comments on the contribution made by the Biggar lads.

 

Last weekend past saw the girls and Colts Presentation evenings, both well attended events.

The Girls section at the Club has had another very successful season so there was plenty for coaches Eric Shearer, Mark Foster, Charlie Court and Calum Taylor to report.

Calum’s Guess Who competition was much appreciated and had the company in fits!

Awards were made as follows:

U15’s

Top Trainer Mason Cosh (Capt)

Most Improved Rachel Phillips

Players Player’s Geraldine Kimm

Coaches Player Emma Orr

 

U18’s

Top Trainer Megan McCarry

Coaches Player Ailie Tucker

 

Captains Megan and Emily Armstrong (U18) made presentations to the coaching team and parent helpers. Big thanks also to Committe rep Tammy Mitchell for all her co-ordination and organisation.

 

Colts

This evening was significant not only for the fact that several of the Colts are moving up from Youth rugby to Senior rugby but also because it marked the final Presentation Night for the coaching trio of Ian Barr, Gavin Hill and David Murray who are retiring after many years in harness. Their’s has been a massive commitment to the club and to the hundreds of youngsters that they have coached. A very full appreciation of their contribution and by way of thanks was provided by Aird Jardine.

As usual the coaches themselves did not disappoint and there were some very funny stories for those present – check the website for pics of the less PC awards!

Colts

Top Trainer: Alex Toal

Outstanding Contribution: Angus Kerr

Best Newcomer: Lewis Stewart

Players Player’s: Aaron Dobie

Yogi Barr Award (presented by the Thomson Family) : Rory McGinn

 

Rory and Rowan Stewart were on hand to make presentations to the coaching team and parent helpers with a big shout to Chris and Jock (head Chefs).

 

Again a huge thank you to Carolyn, Jan and their team who provide the usual excellent feed for all present.

 

Club News

On Saturday the wet weather failed to dampen the spirits of the Girls sides who came from the West for the Area Sevens Qualifier, an event the club was delighted to be asked to hold.

Although exact results have yet to be confirmed Biggar’s U15’s and U18’s have both qualified for the National finals although the prospect of an S6 leavers holiday is likely to deprive the senior age group of several of their team!

 

The club is running a Tombola at the sevens and would appreciate donations for this from the membership. Donations can be left in at the Club (Members Lounge please) any night of the week.

 

 

Next Wednesday (31st May) is the date of the club AGM. Please remember that this is YOUR club and that the AGM provides you with an opportunity to have your say as to the way the club is being run. At the same time this is your chance to put your hand up to perhaps join the committee.

Starts sharp 7.30pm


Colts Awards Evening

Over 70 players, parents and guests attended the club for a great awards night, hosted for the last time by the retiring coaching team of Yogi, Muz and Gav.

As always the evening was one of celebrating the achievements of the players and teamwork the squad had worked so hard for over the last 10 months,

After a great meal the coaches all spoke in what can only be described as their own inimitable style. The fun and totally politically incorrect awards were handed out first going to Guy Kelly, Aaron & Marcus Dobie and Craig Frame, culminating with Alex Toal getting an award for his commitment to training and his progress over the past season.

The evening then progressed to the more formal awards which went to Angus Kerr for his outstanding commitment over the last season, Lewis Stewart was awarded the trophy for Best New Colt. The players Player of the Year was awarded to Aaron Dobie and the Yogi Barr trophy for the Coaches Player of the year was this year awarded to Rory McGinn.

The evening ended with gifts given to the coaches, those that have assisted the team over the year and rounded off a great evening with the coaching team able to relax as they all take a sabbatical before no doubt being asked to pass on some of their coaching skills to others at the club as they have carried out such a great job with so many youngsters over the past 15 years, The club are grateful for the hard work and commitment all 3 of tech coaching team and for what they have achieved with so many different youngsters,

Well done to all the award winners and also Muz, Gav and Yogi.


2nd XV presented with Winners Trophy

A few of Dougie Flemmings players were on hand today alongside him to receive their winners trophy as East Reseve League 1 champions having gone through their season only losing once.

Well done to all the squad


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.


Biggar RFC AGM and the future

Season 2016718

The Club is currently run by a General Committee comprised of Office Bearers and various Convenors who take responsibility for different sections within the club - please see below a list of those who were in post in season 2016/17.

As you will probably know, we are currently seeking Charitable status for the Club which will result in a good deal of restructuring with regard to the formation of a Limited Company and a Board of Trustees. We had to appoint Directors and Trustees before we could make our application to OSCAR.

The Club committee will still exist however, although it is also open to some re-structuring, this primarily due to the ever-increasing size of the club and the amount of time required to run and manage its business as efficiently as possible.

Our AGM is the point within the year when Office Bearers and Committee are elected. The majority of those currently in post are willing to stand again in their current role or in another role or as co-opted members of the committee (as indicated). All current committee members will be subject to re-election at the AGM while any interested parties may themselves stand for election at the AGM providing they have a proposer and seconder on the night (election may be subject to a vote with the stipulation being that anyone wishing to stand for committee and their proposer and seconder must all be full Club members).

The current committee is keen to recruit new faces to join them in running the club and making things work, whether that be as a specific convenor with an identified role or as co-opted members to 'shadow' current convenors.

Anyone requiring further information should contact a member of the committee who will be able to provide an insight into what is involved.

 

President Al Stewart (standing down as President after a 2 year term; automatically co-opted for one year as ex-President)
Vice-President Peter McDonald (Proposed/Seconded as President for 2017/18)

Club Secretary David Adams
Treasurer Doug Low (standing down as Treasurer but available for Co-opted role)
Fixture Secretary John Jackson
Facilities and Development Nigel Pacey (Proposed/Seconded as Treasurer for 2017/18)
Bar, Sponsorship & Membership Secretary Gordon Young 
Merchandising Ian Notman   
Pitch Convenor Hugh Barr
Playing Convenor Ian Notman 
2nd XV Rep John Bogle (Proposed/Seconded as Vice-President for 2017/18)
Mini Convener Laura Watson

Girls Convenor Tammy Mitchell
DO/Academy Rep Patrick McGinn  
Co-opted members Doug Ward

 

Rugby has SO much to offer.         Biggar RFC has so much to offer.


Girls in brave effort against Hill Jills

U18 GIRLS EDGED OUT IN EXCITING SEMI: U18 Girls Club Cup Semi-Final 7th April 2017

Biggar 29 Hillhead Jordanhill 33

Biggar girls had a lively start against a very professional and well drilled Hills team and following a kick and chase scored a converted try to open the scoring within the first 5 minutes.

Hills responded very quickly with a try to take the scores level at 7 all. The game was very even for the next period with both sides displaying good attack and defence. Both teams were playing the game at a good tempo and it was Biggar who achieved the next score which was converted to make the score 14 -7.

Hills responded with a converted try to level the score at 14 all. Biggar scored again to open the lead to 19 – 14. Biggar continued to apply pressure and following several phases a try was scored by very good forward play. 24-14 (HT)

An injury to Biggar full back Sarah Denholm as part of this earlier play resulted in the referee blowing for half time slightly ahead of time. With paramedics still attending to the injury the second half was resumed on an adjacent pitch.

It was Biggar that scored first to make the score 29 -14, Hills responded quickly with a try taking the scores to 29 -19. The Hills girls enjoyed a prolonged period of possession and although the Biggar defence was responding it eventually was broken allowing a score between the posts with a successful conversion which took the score to 29 – 26.

Hills continued to mount attacks and with Biggar picking up further injuries their defence was broken again to take Hills into the lead for the first time in the match 33- 29.

With only minutes remaining in the game Biggar pressurised the Hills defence but it was Hills that finished stronger and held out to take the victory in a fiercely contested match that would have been worthy of the final.

Biggar tries by Megan McCarry, Jennifer Bell, Rachel Hill, Megan MacLeod , Julia Bell with 2 conversions from Emily Armstrong. Hills now proceed to the final against Stirling at Murrayfield.

Many thanks to the fantastic local support, the officials, Joanne Robertson and the Brown family for their sterling work and Richard Robinson for filming duties which must have been difficult in the reduced light of the second half!

PS- Sarah did not incur any breaks and was released from hospital later in the evening with muscle damage and bruising. (Currently sporting a very nice black eye!)

Report by Bill Denholm


National selection honours

Congratulations to Fraser Brown who was selected to start on Saturday for Scotland against Ireland. Sadly his involvement lasted but 25 minutes after he clashed heads and although he was able to return after treatment he was replaced. Early indications are that the injury will not rule him out of selection for this weekend’s match against France.

At National U18 level Guy Kelly and Andrew Nimmo both took part in a training match on Sunday between the members of the Scotland U18 squad. Both props acquitted themselves well and will now continue to train prior to the 6Nations Championship in March. Meanwhile Andrew Jardine who has had a frustrating season due to injury will continue his latest return to action after rib injury. He will keep his fingers crossed that he will be considered for the March event.


Friday night floodlit match

2nds v Penicuik

The break in League action due to the start of this year’s 6 Nations Championship – and what a belter of a performance from Scotland – meant that there was another opportunity to hold a Friday evening match under the floodlights.

With a pre-match meal featuring sponsors Harbro and a fantastic turnout of coaches, refs and other volunteers as the club thanked all for their efforts the clubhouse was packed to overflowing.

The team work of Carolyn Cairns, Jan Harper alongside Kim, Lisa and Tess worked wonders again to provide a cracking meal for all (thanks again ladies!) before those brave enough ventured out to take in the match between Biggar and Penicuik 2nds.

‘Brave’ enough was apt and that goes too for those who played as the evening was anything but pleasant with a gale and torrential rain spoiling the contest which was ended prematurely because players (and referee) were so cold.

By midway through the second half the game was pretty much done and dusted as Biggar had engineered a handsome and unassailable lead against a plucky Penicuik XV who on the night were out-gunned by salvo upon salvo from the host XV.

There were encouraging performances from the side with all contributing positively to the cause. It was great to see Scott Thomson and Kyle Anderson back on the rugby pitch and eager to rejoin the fray.

Jock Bogle and Alistair Browning took over the reins as coach Doug Fleming couldn’t be there – the job of selection not an easy one after the Thursday evening training when there was a massive turnout of some 36 senior players. In addition to those present there were of course others who could not manage and/or who were injured. Given that the 1sts XV had no Saturday game and that the 2nds were playing the following night this was a very encouraging sight for the coaches and the club.

Well done to all involved, with of course praise for the pitch development which means that training is now on a well-lit, firm, largely dry surface which makes the prospect of going training so much more appealing. Contrast that with the conditions of previous years when the 2nd XV pitch was under so much pressure with large areas waterlogged and almost unplayable.

 

The preparations continue this week for the resumption of league action on Saturday although these preparations will be somewhat disrupted by the Young Farmers, all of whom have a busy schedule with the concert running all week. It’s been done before by many however and as the clubs tend to compliment each other it’s all part and parcel of busy times! Good luck to all!

 

 


All ‘GO’ at Hartree Mill on Sunday

On Sunday, teams arrived from Oban at boys S1/2 level, and from Falkirk, Waysiders, Cartha, East Kilbride, Linlithgow and Livingston at girls U15 level. Games ensued on what was a much more pleasant afternoon than had been the case the previous day.

All had a great afternoons’ rugby.

Biggar also had an U18 girls side at Murrayfield Wanderers (31-15 defeat) and U12 and U10 girls at Stewarts Melville! It just gets bigger and better!

 

U18 girls v Murrayfield Wanderers. (Report by Jane Denholm)

The U18 girls had their first match of 2017 on a cold and bright day on the back pitch at Murrayfield.

They started off well with some early pressure leading to a penalty which was taken quickly and a try was scored in the corner by Amy Watkins.

Wandies came back at Biggar although handling errors on both sides meant that the sides were evenly matched for the bulk of the first half. Injuries  to Biggar full back Kim Laird and No 10 Amy Watkins on the half hour mark disrupted play and Wandies took advantage from a lineout to score an unconverted try to level the score at 5 all at half time.

Wandies started the second half better and took advantage of a mix up in the Biggar ranks to score a converted try to take the score to 12-5. Biggar responded with some pressure that led to a further try scored by Ailie Tucker to take the score to 12-10.

Wandies N0 10 ,who was a constant threat to Biggar all day, scored a breakaway try and with a successful conversion took the score to 19-10. Wandies continued to press and despite some valiant defending by Biggar they scored a further try mid-way through the second half to increase the score to 24-10.

Some direct running from the Biggar girls and good driving gave Biggar a try with 5 minutes to go taking the score to 24-15 (try scored by Biggar Captain  Emily Armstrong). However it was Wandies that showed the greater hunger and after an error at the re-start it allowed the Wandies Nr 10 to score a further converted try right on full time. Final score 31-15.

The girls looked rusty for long periods of the match although there was some very good work at the lineout and scrum but they will need to work on certain areas ahead of the upcoming league and cup matches. As always many thanks go  to the coaches and we hope that Amy and Kim recover quickly and are back playing soon.


A Tale of two halves…

West of Scotland 26 Biggar 32

Biggar claimed only their second away win this season after they scraped over the line against West on Saturday.

That Biggar claimed a 4 try bonus was another boost for the side who have struggled recently, save for last week against bottom of the table Hill Jills.

With West claiming a win over near neighbours GHK the previous Saturday, Biggar travelled in the knowledge that they would face a city side on form. That they dominated the first half was extremely pleasing then, their 29 point tally coming in very nearly the same number of minutes. Aird Jardine kicked 2 conversions from the 5 first half tries, the opening try scored by himself and others by Alisdair Sinclair, Donald Voas, Ewan Sanderson and Gregor Stewart.

Quite what went wrong after the break needs some analysis but seemingly, without any obvious reason, Biggar’s effort faltered just as West’s increased, the home side able to claw their way back into the contest to add 3 tries to their solitary first half score to claim a 4 try bonus of their own ato take the score to 29-26 with some 10 minutes remaining.

This then became a 1 score match and it was left to Jardine to stretch Biggar’s lead to 6 points with a penalty. West were still very much in the game however and had they opted to kick for touch with their last penalty and use their most successful tactic, the lineout drive to exert pressure on the Biggar line then they may have sneaked the win. Instead however the tap penalty option was preferred and as they went through the phases it was Jamie Orr who rounded off a cracking game with a priceless turnover to end the contest.

Exciting or nerve racking? Both and in equal measure!

 

Biggar made a couple of changes to the side which opened against Hill Jills. There was a change at centre where Gregor Stewart returned after injury to replace Craig McDonald and at scrum half where Davy Reive replaced David McArthur.. In the pack Andrew Dunlop moved up to 2nd row to replace the injured Zander Lyon while Duncan Withers took his place in the back row albeit for just the first half due to a prior engagement.

Colt Andrew Nimmo made his first step into senior action as he came off the bench, the youngster showing up well and making some decent hits. He is also to be congratulated on making the next cut for the Scotland U18 squad who take on England at Peffermill on Sunday.

 

In a whirlwind start, this much to do with the fact that the game was played on West’s 3G pitch, Biggar ran West ragged and allowed them barely a touch of the ball and this only after Jardine opened the scoring with a neat chip and chase.

David Paterson, who had a very positive and very industrious day in both attack and defence, made the break for the next score although it was opposite winger Sinclair who rounded off the move with try in the corner. Paterson showed some real flair with this run which saw him round and hand off no fewer than 4 defenders before feeding Sinclair. Having missed the first conversion from a relatively good angle Jardine saw his next effort from virtually the touchline rebound off the upright. 10-0.

A series of good carries ended as Withers was left isolated and the resultant penalty gave west the chance to use their driving maul to good effect to take play into Biggar’s 22. Their pick and go’s looked to have done enough for a score but the referee blew for a knock on instead although the scrum saw Biggar penalised and west regain the initiative. A couple of phases later and their centre crashed over for a score which took the score to 10-7.

Undeterred Biggar came right back into things with a try Donald Voas, the prop tracking a dynamic charge from Ross Jackson. When tackled Jackson presented well and gave Voas the chance to pick and go for the last 8 metres.

Barely three minutes elapsed before Ewan Sanderson crashed over after another assault on the West line. Jardine’s conversion put Biggar ahead at 22-7 and also gave Biggar the 4 try bonus.

Stewart’s try just short of the half hour was set up by Robbie Lavery whose run took him through the first West line of defence. His pop pass was gratefully accepted by his fellow centre who was able to get the ball down despite the attentions of the West cover. Jardine added the points for the 29-7 half time score.

Biggar almost added a 6th try as Jackson intercepted off West in the Biggar 22. The youngster set off for the line but a cracking cover tackle from the West fullback did just enough to prevent the off-load tp the supporting Paterson and the attack came to nought.

Biggar don’t have a great track record for regularly running up large scores but such was their dominance of the first half proceedings - save perhaps for the driven line which West used to good effect – that had they managed another score shortly after half time, things might have been very different.

That was not to be however and a combination of errors and an increase in confidence of the home side conspired to give West the initiative. Their scrum half nipped over from an early attack and the conversion took the score to 29-14.

West will rue the missed chances they had in the game and which would have given them the win had they been converted. Twice they lost control of ball over the line although this was also due in no small part to some excellent cover defence from Biggar’s back 3 of Sinclair, Paterson and Steele who tracked back well on both occasions to prevent the score.

On the first of these the score was merely delayed as a mix up off the scrum base, an area which Biggar generally controlled well, led to possession being lost by Stewart who could only watch as the West centre pounced to score the try. 29-21!

A penalty and kick to the corner preceded the next West try, which happily from a Biggar point of view at least, was not converted. But at 29-16 the match was set alight for a nerve-jangling 10 minutes.

As the game progressed it became evident that the errors from both sides were going to be influential. While Biggar showed up really well in defence – Orr, Sanderson, Stewart just three who tackled tirelessly throughout – it was West’s errors which prevented them from claiming the lead.

Biggar’s attacks were rare occasions and these too ended with errors which allowed West further attacking opportunities. One such opportunity came as West lost ball in attack. Showing some great skills Biggar passed the ball wide to Lavery who made ground before passing to Paterson who took off on another run. There is a time to pass and a time to run and on this occasion Paterson held on for a fraction too long, the off-load to Orr just not suite going to hand.

Just minutes later however and Biggar were awarded a rare penalty which Jardine slotted for 32-26.

As the clock ticked on Biggar tackled manfully and then came the last turnover from Jamie Orr which brought the final whistle.

Players breathed heavily from their efforts while the Biggar spectators breathed heavily in relief! Ex-Biggar man Angus Thomson again showed up well form his adpoted club, leading form the front and tackling well throughout.

Coaches Mercer and Wilson were left scratching at their heads in an effort to understand quite what changed after half time. Nevertheless, this was an important win and one which should set the squad up nicely for their next match which sees them back in Glasgow at Whitecraigs.

 

Biggar

Thomas Steele, Alistair Sinclair, Robbie Lavery, Gregor Stewart, David Paterson, Aird Jardine, David Reive (C), Donald Voas, Ewan Stewart, Dan O'Connell, Andrew Dunlop, Jamie Orr, Duncan Withers, Ewan Sanderson, Ross Jackson. Reps: Andrew Orr, Calvin Henderson, Andrew Nimmo, Craig McDonald.

 

The 2nd XV hosted Lasswade in a match postponed from a fortnight ago.

Able to field a strong XV Biggar recorded another excellent win by 41-3.

There was a 4 try bonus point with Alan Warnock notching a fantastic 4 try haul himself while Douglas Notman, Craig Frame and Alan Todd also scored, the last two both scoring from what was their first touches of the ball!

Gary Morrison (2) and Jack Warnock (2) shared the kicking duties.

With Kelso winning a tight match by 19-17 at Edin Accies, but without the all important bonus point, Biggar now return to the top of the East reserve league table by just 1 point.

Well done boys!
