THE starlets of Biggar Rugby Club under-16s won the Edinburgh and District League title with an emphatic 52-0 victory at Heriot’s last weekend.

The under-16s – the only Biggar side in action due to weather-related postponements elsewhere – put on one of the best displays of all round teamwork seen in a match in a long time.

Tries by Andrew Jardine (4), Guy Kelly, Andrew Nimmo, Rowan Stewart and Marcus Dobie, plus six conversions, landed the league title for Biggar in truly wonderful style.

Biggar’s coaching team of John Bogle and Gavin Hill, ably assisted by Jock Gray, had grins like Cheshire cats at the final whistle and they deserve praise for the sterling work they have done with the boys.
