Thank you to everyone at Hamilton Rugby who supported us on our 260 mile charity cycle in aid of Columba 1400. Our running total is £1,920 but with gift aid added it comes to £2,296.25.
We are still a bit short of our £3,000 target so we'd welcome a donation from anyone who hasn't yet had a chance to sponsor us. You can make a donation - no matter how small - on our mydonate page which can be reached by clicking here.
It was a well-attended night match from the Bulls community, all looking to support the Hamilton U15s take on the visitors Whitecraigs.
The home crowd got an early opportunity to celebrate when Sam powered through the Whitecraigs defence to get an early try which was converted by Andrew. The next 10 minutes was impacted by a lot of errors from both sides which stopped the game from flowing but, after both teams cut out the mistakes, it was our opponents who took advantage and were rewarded with a converted try. Both teams then tried effortlessly, before the half time whistle, to find a gap in each other’s lines; but it was once again Whitecraigs who grabbed another converted try giving the visitors a 14-7 lead at the break.
As the second half started it was Hamilton who once again had the best start when Kyle who took the ball down the blind side with a great pick and go. He was tackled short, but some great support from Gary saw the giant Prop bag himself a try which was converted by Andrew again.
Fancy picking up the whistle and helping our game to flourish?
